Can’t wait until the Kentucky Derby to do some online horse race gambling? Never fear, the 2017 Road to the Kentucky Derby passes through the Fair Grounds Race Course in New Orleans, Louisiana this Saturday, January 21st for the Lecomte Stakes, which offers a $200,000 purse – must be a Louis Vuitton – but more importantly, 10 RTTKD points to the winner, four points to the runner-up, and two and one points to the third and fourth place, respectively. The 12-horse field includes the too-clever-for-their-own-good names that people who bet on horse races have come to expect, so let’s get to know these noble brutes more profoundly.
The Sham Stakes, the next stop on the online horse race gambling 2017 Road to the Kentucky Derby (RTTKD), will take place on Saturday, January 7th at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, California. Gormley is the favorite of people who bet on horse races to win this race, but the field will be filled with six other horses who will do their best to win the 10 RTTKD points awarded to the first place – or, failing that, the four, two, or one points given to the second, third, and fourth place, respectively.

Horse betting fans may not know this, but entering a horse is very hard work; a task which requires a lot of patience and persistence. You really have to worm your way inside inch by inch. Sometimes you have to back up a little in order to advance further, but it’s also very rewarding, especially if your horse finishes first. At no time is this truer than when you’re trying to enter your horse in the Breeders’ Cup Classic. In fact, you have to pre-enter your horse, as if in one of those posh schools for gifted children.

Now that Nyquist is out of the picture, Exaggerator is the Belmont Stakes betting favorite to win the 148th running of the Test of the Champions. And even if Nyquist weren’t still at Pimlico recovering from illness, Exaggerator has already proven he can beat Nyquist, which he actually did at the Preakness Stakes. Now that Exxie has been able to cross that out of his bucket list, what’s to stop him at Belmont? And while there will be no Triple Crown Champion this year, Exaggerator can still join the distinguished club of horses who have won both Preakness and Belmont – and which includes the likes of Pillory, Capot, Nashua, Damascus, Risen Star, Hansel, Tabasco Cat, and others.
Early Preakness betting odds put the eight-race undefeated Nyquist against the field. The colt's victory at the Kentucky Derby on Saturday has trainer Doug O'Neill's horse as a heavy favorite to repeat his success at Pimlico Race Course on May 21st in Baltimore. Exaggerator, the runner-up behind Nyquist on Saturday, is also second on the odds board. As of Monday, according Exaggerator and Lani are the only early returns from Churchill Downs that will be racing in Baltimore in addition to Nyquist. Laoban and Cherry Wine are scheduled to run at Pimlico though they did not participate in the Run of the Roses. Regardless of who runs, Nyquist should be leading the charge when it’s all said and done.

Nyquist, with its recent success might be edging it out as the top horse to beat, but Mohaymen will be a tough competitor. We might have a dramatic race in our hands come the first Saturday of May.
Horse race tracks in California have been one of the main opponents to legalized online poker in the state of California. Why? Because, if the tribal casinos get their way, race tracks will be cut out of the market or vastly marginalized.

Worldwide, perhaps the most notable piece of news in the horse betting rule is the exit of the most dominant and notorious horse in the past years. The big story of the year was undoubtedly that American Pharoah won the Triple Crown, the first time such a thing happens in 37 long years, so it was a monumental feat that will not be overlooked, and most likely eclipsed many of the different stories that came from the racing world.Continue Reading
