Where Are the Best Places to Bet on Horse Racing?

Every day we update the site with the specials offers for horse racing. We know what bookmakers have the best betting offers better than anyone else.

With that in mind, we are uniquely positioned to tell you which bookmakers frequently have the best offers, and therefore where you should be betting on horse racing.

There are two types of offer to look out for; money back and bonuses.

1) Money back on losing bets

Bookmakers will refund losing bets on certain conditions. These conditions vary. It could be for instance that you receive money back when your horse loses by a length.

Over the past 12 months, we’ve seen the following bookmakers

  • 10Bet – Money back if 2nd to the SP favourite
  • Paddy Power – Money back when certain horses win
  • Boylesports – Money back if your Horses finishes 2nd to SP fav
  • Betfred – Free bet when your horse finishes 2nd by half a length or Less
  • Totesport – Free bet when your horse finishes 2nd by half a length or less
  • Betway – Free bet refunds on losing horses (high profile meets only)

Stakes are almost always issued as free bets, with wagering and time requirements.

2) Bonus on winning bets

Some bookmakers will offer a bonus on your winnings if the horse wins by a certain margin. For 2018, there is only one bookmaker still doing this sort of offer.

  • William Hill – 15% extra winnings if your horse wins by two or more lengths (known as ‘2 Clear’).

3) Risk Free Bets

It’s more common to receive free bets as a new customer, but it is possible to get risk free bets as an existing customer too.

For races televised on ITV, Betfair will give you free bets when you back winners. Bet365 are another bookmaker that does this.

4) Check they offer ‘best odds guaranteed’ (BOG)

Odds can change by the minute. It is possible to back a horse before the start of the race, only for the price to get better. To prevent this frustration, many of the bookmakers offer ‘best odds guaranteed’.

If the starting price (SP) of your horse is better than the odds you backed it at, the bookmaker will pay out at the SP price.

It is common for most bookmakers to offer best odds guaranteed. All the bookmakers featured on MyBettingSites offer best odds guaranteed with one exception; NetBet.

What Are the Best Horse Racing Offers for New Customers?
