Win Big on Summer Horse Racing at Your Online Sportsbook

This year’s Triple Crown horse racing season, starting with the Kentucky Derby the first Saturday in May, was one of the best in years when it came to betting on the races with a different winner in each event. While the casual horse racing fan loves to bet on heavy favorites in hopes of seeing a Triple Crown run, the savvy bettor knows the value of having a wide open field when it comes to cashing in winning tickets that have the potential to provide a big return on investment.

The casual horse bettor also thinks that these three races constitute the entire horse racing season with the possible exception of the Breeders’ Cup in early November. Anyone who follows horses on a regular basis knows that this is a year-round betting event with a number of major graded stakes race on the card each and every week. The summer months of July, August and September offer some of the best opportunities of the year to cash in on some of the biggest races on the card.

Starting at the end of July with the $1 million Haskell Invitational at Monmouth Park in New Jersey for the top three-year olds in the nation running right through to the $1 million Ricoh Woodbine Mile in mid-September at Woodbine Racetrack in Toronto, there is plenty of horse betting action on the board this summer at any number of offshore sportsbooks taking action online. In between these two big money Grade 1 stakes races you also have the $1.2 million Whitney Stakes at Saratoga, the $1 million TVG Pacific Classic at Del Mar and the $1.25 million Travers Stakes also at Saratoga in the month of August. Add in all the daily action on race cards at tracks all across North America and overseas, and there is an almost endless amount of betting action to choose from. Best of all, if you already have an online account at one of these top sportsbooks set up to bet on sports, you can easily bet on horses through their online racebook.

One of the best reasons to bet on horses through your online sportsbook along with the ease of one-stop shopping is the various bonuses and incentives that are always up for grabs. The top sportsbooks in the Internet sport betting industry also want your horse racing action and they are more than willing to reward you for this added business.

Some books will go as far as to give you daily horse racing rebate on all your bets placed, win or lose. This can add up to quite a bit of cash back in your account to help you extend your entire online betting bankroll. If you are new to the world of horse racing, you can often find incentives that will give you a free play in their racebook on the first action you place. Getting paid back to bet on horses on a regular basis is great, but one of the biggest reasons to bet on sports and horses at the same online betting outlet is the benefit to your overall account. Many of the top books offer very lucrative incentives based on the total amount of all your wagers. Just like the perks that the high rollers receive in Las Vegas based on their betting activity, online sportsbooks will reward you handsomely for all the bets you place.

Just about any action junkie would agree that the adrenaline rush of watching your horse best the field, or better yet, have your top three horses come in first, second and third is one of the

best feelings in the world. While you are waiting for the new football season to start, it is as easy as ever to get that action fix betting on the horses at your favorite online book.
