How to Place a Wager on a Horse Race
Part of the Betting on Horse Racing For Dummies Cheat Sheet
Betting on horse racing isn’t a complicated procedure. Most often, you place your bet, take your ticket, and tear it up when your bet doesn’t pay off. However, if you’re lucky — or skilled — you get to take your ticket back to the window and collect your winnings. The following list spells out the betting procedure step by step:
State the name of the racetrack.
State what number race you’re betting.
State the dollar unit of your bet.
State the type of wager.
You can bet on a single horse to win, place, or show or on a combination of horses.
State the number of the horse or horses you’re using.
Check your ticket before you leave the window.
