Horse racing is one of the world’s most loved sports. It has gone from strength to strength and has a history dating back over 6,000 years. Since those early days when Asia is thought to have pitted horse and rider against horse and rider, the sport has gone through many period and changes.

Free Racing Tips Today it is something which attracts people from all over the world and has become synonymous with the various methods, practices and the educated guesses adopted by punters to place a winning bet.

Be you the kind of punter who just likes to place a nominal sum on a horse to win, place or show, or a serious punter who has a great deal of experience with handicapping and will attempt the tricky art of a Super Yankee or Goliath, there are quite a few different ways to go about placing a bet, just as there are quite a few bets.

The novice punter, or just one who finds that the thrill is better when a small wager is placed, will probably not venture into Super Yankee territory, at least not until they have a fairly good grasp of the inns and outs of odds, accumulators, spread and standard betting and all quirks and inherent difficulties of different bets and their methodologies.

Before the details of the numerous specific bets are considered, the new punter might like to know a little about the various places which will accept a bet, and the pros and cons of each. The tote is one of the three main options, and many punters prefer to chance their money at the tote than with the bookmakers, who are another of the other main options. A bet placed with the tote is fundamentally a pooled bet. The odds of the horses change until the race starts, and can be influenced by the number of punters betting on favourites. After the race is over, the winnings are then split between all who bet on the winners, while those who bet on the same and lost lose their bet to the winners. Essentially, a pooled betting system is one in which punters bet against one another, while a small percentage is taken by the tote as commission.

While there are certain times when the tote offers the best option for the knowing punter, many prefer to take their stake to the bookmakers. The main difference being that the bookmakers offer their own odds and a bet is placed at fixed odds, or, if the punter wishes, at Starting Price (S.P.), which means that the odds can change all the way to the start of the race. A bet placed with the bookmaker is against the bookmaker.

In the modern age, where people have access to the internet and can communicate directly with one another, it’s not surprising to find that Betting Exchanges have become quite a popular alternative to bookmakers. Also called Matched Betting, it is a system by which punters can still place their favourite types of wager, although against each other, effectively cutting out the bookmaker from the equation.

It also has the added benefit of allowing punters to select odds based on what individuals are offering. While it is still not quite as popular as the tote or bookmaker, it is becoming increasingly popular and many internet sites are now available for those who want to explore this different approach.

Super Yankee, winner Before anyone can begin thinking about their Super Yankee or even a basic accumulator, they will have to know a bit about the race they are watching. Handicapping is generally considered the only real way to make an educated guess as to the outcome of an event. Handicapping is all about taking in as much of the information from both sides of the track, from the equestrian side and the bookmakers side, and then making an informed decision about which horses to select in your bet, be it a Super Yankee or a less complex Trifecta.

Of course, you can just place a fun bet to win or place, perhaps selecting a horse because it is a favourite or for a sentimental reason. Many who visit racecourses approach betting this way, and many win, it’s just that the odds are never as good as those which require a detailed knowledge about the various elements which make for a serious bet.

Watching the odds, is a valuable part of betting. A punter wants to select a ‘true favourite’ and not be influenced by a horse and jockey which have come into the racing press and so have inflated odds which don’t speak of their ‘true’ chance of winning. Handicapping is vital for a bet like the Super Yankee. This is a bet which is actually 26 bets, made up of 10 doubles, 10 trebles, five four folds and one five fold.

This bet is taken for 5 selections. To even be able to guess at such a complex bet, a punter will usually be experienced with handicapping, and have a good knowledge of the course, the state of the turf, the horses’ past wins and their potential to make the most of the distance and type of track, as well as have an idea of the jockey, the trainer, even the owner. If all the details look favourable and the punter has their bet worked out, there still remains the question of whether they are going to get the kind of odds they want. Although the stake to profit ratio on this kind of bet is mostly worth it no matter what the odds are, it’s always good to get the best.
