    Tips for Betting on Horse Racing

    If you are going to use the Betway horse racing page, here are some horse racing tips to help you get the most out of it:

    • Get value for money – Betway is good for this. Don’t accept lower odds on your horse when better is available elsewhere.
    • Do your research – Know the form, understand what makes a horse more likely to win. At the very least, understand who the best trainers and jockeys are by reviewing the stats for each territory.
    • Don’t chase your losses – If you do lose a bet, don’t be tempted to bet again straight away in order to try to recoup losses. This often leads simply to more lost bets. Keep calm and wait for next time.

    There are fascinating and competitive races to bet on every day at various levels. Some races however are bigger than others.

    Odds are available on the Durban July, the SA Fillies Classic, the Triple Crown and more. Ante post betting is also available on the jockey and trainer championship.
