American Racing Betting

Although it’s common practice to see European horses ship over for a shot at winning American high-profile races, American Racing has a number of distinct differences than European flat racing.

In general, American races tend to favour very fast starts, and positioning at the beginning of the race can be a make or break factor, whereas European racing (and turf racing in general) tends to be all about the final furlong or two.

American racing is built primarily around 3 year-olds, who are the only horses able to run in any of the Triple Crown races. The first leg of the Triple Crown is the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs followed by the Preakness Stakes at Pimlico and the Belmont Stakes at Belmont Park.

Betting on American racing is a bit different than European wagering and exotic bets are extremely popular in the United States. Pick 4’s, Pick 6’s and superfectas are unique wagers that you generally won’t find on other shores. Additionally, all American racing uses what’s called the pari-mutual system which is, effectively, tote betting
