Things to Know About Horse Racing

Have you ever been to the horse races? There are many fun and exciting things to do and see. If you are a beginner, you will find that if you take the time to learn a little about the process, you will enjoy the experience a lot more. There are several terms and basic betting information that will make the process much more enjoyable. You can visit a track, like the one in Shakopee, MN, where you can spend the day watching some incredible animals. Here are some basic things that you may want to know before you go.

What is the Paddock?

If you want to take a look at some beautiful horses, you want to go to the area called the paddock. This is the place where the horses are saddled up prior to their race. You can get an up-close look as they are walked around the ring in preparation. You may find that you can spend your whole afternoon right there taking in this sight alone. If you are betting on the races, this gives you the opportunity to look the horses over and decide which one you feel is the horse for you!


When you arrive at the race track you are able to get a racing form that lists both the races for the day and the horses participating. This gives you a chance to determine what races you are most interested in and if you would like to place a bet. This is a unique form of gambling because there are always winners in each race. It is actually a competition with the other people who have placed bets. The money is pooled together in categories and then, if you win your bet, you get a part of that pool.

You will go to a betting window to actually place your bet prior to the race. You will want to tell them the track that you are betting on and the number of the race. You will let the clerk know the amount you want to bet, such as $10.00. You then indicate the type of bet you are making, such as win, place or show. The last thing you will need to identify is the number of the horse you want to place your bet on. You can place a bet on any race before it is run. Sometimes the track will be showing races from other areas that you can also bet on, so that is why it is important to identify the track.

The most basic bets are to win or finish first. If the horse places they will take first or second, and if they show they are one of the top three finishers. There are other types of bets called exotic wagering that are a bit more complicated. You may choose to bet on the first three places, naming which horse will take which place. You could choose to bet on two consecutive races, or even three or four. You may want to wait until you have a little more experience before making these types of bets.

The Tote Board

The tote board is kind of like the score board of horse racing. You will find it in a prominent position at the track, and it will list current races, odds for each horse, the amount of money bet on each, and many other things. It will help you to know what races are coming up and the time you have left to make a bet. You will also see results listed there as well.

These are just a few things to know about horse racing. You may find that just watching the races is a wonderful past time. Go to a track in Shakopee, MN, or in your area and enjoy an afternoon!
