Before diving into the wagering options with horse racing, did you know it is legal on a national level (with a few states as the exceptions) to bet on horse racing online? Click here for the full analysis.

Win, Place or Show Wagering

This is the simplest way to bet in horse racing.

Win = If the horse you bet wins the race, you win money. This bet is only split among those that have bet the winner.

Place = If the horse you bet wins the race or finishes second, you cash a ticket. This bet is split among those that have bet the winner or second place finisher.

Show = If the horse you bet finishes in the top three, you cash a ticket. This bet is split among those that have bet any horse that finishes in the top three.

A common phrase used to bet all three of these wagers is called across the board. For example, if you like the No. 12 horse in the race you can make your wager by simply saying “I want $2 across the board on the No. 12 horse” (or for whatever denomination you are comfortable with).

The win, place and show pool payouts are displayed based on the $2 minimum wager.

Win, place and show bets are known as straight wagers and is the simplest way to get involved. In addition to straight wagers, horse racing offers several “exotic wagers,” which are more difficult to get correct but the payouts can be life changing in some circumstances.

I'm a wannabe athlete whose athletic career ended after a long tenure riding the bench through JV baseball. The fantasy sports and sports betting degen side of me blossomed at age 12 when I found fantasy baseball and football, and led to a 12-year submergence into the poker scene -- I started playing "secret" cash games in my parents' basements by age 14. Luckily, I've finally found what I love to do -- write about "fake sports," which my girlfriend refers to it as, though it only took me until age 30. If you decide you like the words I write and follow me on Twitter (@nd_joyce), I apologize in advance for the copious amounts of dog photos you will see.
