If you’ve ever been to live casinos in Malaysia before, there are plenty of different games out there that you can play (and hopefully) win. The same thing goes when you bet on horse racing.
When you look at horse racing programs, you will find a wealth of information that will usually bombard people that are not in the know.
Betting on horse races is actually quite a lucrative thing to do, provided that you actually know the terms that are stipulated in such programs.
Today, I am going to tell you how to read a typical horse racing program so that in the event that you are going to bet on specific horses, you will do so using the correct data.
Live and Online
If you are going to bet on horse racing, there are two ways to do so. You can either go to an actual horse racing derby near your area and you will be prompted to go to a specific teller that will help you place your bets.
However, due to the advent of technology, many people that engage in horse race betting use online means- either through a computer program or a mobile application.
Anyway, here are some of the things that you normally see in horse racing programs:
1. Name of the Jockey or Owner
The first thing that you are able to see when you look at the information sheet is the name of the horse that is usually followed by the name of the player or the owner.
Then, just right beside it, you will see a glimpse of the actual horse. This is probably the most important thing that you can set your focus on since you will have an understanding of the horse and how it might influence your betting decisions.
As a bettor, you have to check the name of the horse as it is flashed on the screen. The screen will usually give you the information about the betting odds. You can also find information about the player’s racing history, as well as their performance indicator (like how many races they’ve been to and so on).
This is the part where you can see a brief overview of a particular racing horse’s race records. Here are some of the things that you need to look at:
- The first date that you will see typically represents the current year and the subsequent years will depict their previous racing records
- Life records will also be shown
- In the records, you will find the races that the horse has been through before. The information that you will find will help influence your decision, especially since the horse will be doing a particular race in a short while
- You can also get a relatively accurate representation of the horse’s current value in dollars.
3. Past Performances
If you are interested in the horse’s life records, then it is just fitting that you also look at their previous accomplishments as well.
Pay close attention to the data of the race, as well as the race track, course conditions, final time of the race, odds, and many more.
