5 Ways That Horse Racing Can be Entertaining


Horse racing has been taking place for decades all over the world. Horses are beautiful animals that have a great amount of athleticism and speed. When you go to a horse race, you can be sure to be entertained by the animals and the people in attendance. If you have never been to a horse race, we will describe some ways that horse racing can be entertaining so that you know what to expect at your first race.

  1. See and be seen. Going to a horse race is a great way to see others and be seen. It gives you the opportunity to mingle with the rich and famous if you attend a race that is a high profile, televised event such as the Kentucky Derby. If you attend a big time race such as the Derby, you will likely see people dressed in gorgeous outfits with unique hats. If you go to a local horse race, you will still be in for a treat, but you may not run into anyone famous. You can still have a great deal of fun by people watching at the race even if there are no famous people in attendance.

  1. Learn about the horses and their jockeys. When you go to a horse race, you will likely want to bet on a horse so that the race continues to keep you engaged. When you go to the race, be sure to read your program as there is a plethora of information in it that will give you some tips on the best horses and which horses are expected to win. If you see any odds of 2 to 1, that horse is likely to win the race. While this could mean that you are likely to win if you bet on that horse, this does not mean that you will win a great deal of money as the odds are in your favor.

  1. Place your bets. When placing your bet, understand what you are doing. Be sure to read up on the lingo so that you know what the horse racing jargon is. Otherwise, you could find yourself making some rookie mistakes when placing your bets. When you do place your bet, be sure to read todays race cards thoroughly to make sure that your bet represents what you wanted to bet on. If it does not, be sure to tell the bookie right away so that it can get fixed before the race starts. If you wait and the race starts, you will be stuck with your ticket.

  1. Watch a fun race and cheer for your horse. While you wait for your horse to race, watch the others and choose one to root for. Even if you are not betting on a horse in a particular race, it is still fun to pick one to cheer for.

  1. Hopefully win a few dollars. At the end of the race, listen in for the “weighed in” call to be heard across the loudspeakers. If you believe that your horse won the race, you can check on your ticket and cash it in after you hear that the jockey has been weighed in.
