Whether it’s beginners luck or a seasoned racing enthusiast placing a bet is part of the experience of a race day in Gowran Park. How to choose a horse?
The Look. The name. The colours. The trainer. The jockey. The tip. The form. The word. It’s up to you. There is no exact formula.
Types of Bet
There are two main types of bet: win or each way. If you back to win it goes without saying your horse has to win. A €5 win bet costs €5. If you bet each way your horse can be placed but a €5 each way bet costs €10as it’s really two bets (one to win and one to be placed).
If you win….go back to the place you placed your bet and collect your winnings.
