Horse racing is exciting to watch and even more so when you've got a bet on it. There are two main different types of horse race:
- National hunt races: horses jump over obstacles such as birch fences and water ditches.
- Flat races require no jumping. These are generally shorter in length,
A race of either type can be a handicap or a non-handicap. A handicap race involves better horses carrying extra weight so that all runners have, in theory at least, an equal chance of winning. Non-handicap races do not involve horses carrying any additional weight, and because of this they are widely viewed as being easier to predict.
Betting on Horse Racing: Decide your stake, decide your type of bet and try to pick the winner.
