While the UK is well known as one of the leading horse racing countries of the world, it pales into insignificance when compared to the massive US market which covers dozens of states, time zones and offers hours and hours of live racing each and every day!
Tonight’s Evening Racing takes into account live coverage from both the US and Fairyhouse (Ireland) in what promises to be another night of thrills and spills on the track. This program offers an in depth look at the latest betting, the latest form and news and reviews from the tracks around the US. While many UK gamblers will be aware of this, the US “pooled” betting system offers the chance to bet on a horse showing on the day, placed and winning, ensuring that there is great depth in the money which flows through the industry.
The majority of US horses racing is run on the “dirt” but there are a number of ever green grass circuits appearing throughout the country. The racing styles in the US are very much different to the UK as are the layout of the tracks, with tighter bends which make it more difficult to stay in contention unless you are perfectly placed on the bend.
The US jockeys also seem to employ a “slip stream” style system with the majority happy to “hook up” with the leading horse and then whip past them as they turn the final bend. This adds to the thrills and spills of what can be a very exciting night on the box, and if you are lucky you might even win yourself a few dollars!
Gambling on US racing is available on a wide range of UK based gambling sites and the time difference seems to make no difference to the quality of services provided. US racing makes UK racing seem like a walk in the park at times!
