A place bet means the horse needs to finish second or first. A show bet means the horse you’re rooting for can place first, second or third.16 мая 2014 г.

When horse racing odds are shown in the form of 7-2, 5-1, etc, it expresses the amount of profit to the amount invested. So odds of 7-2 mean that for every $2 invested, the punter gets $7 profit in return. This means when you bet $2, the total return if the bet is successful is $9.
A horse priced at even money, is 50% chance to win, so in your $100 stake, you bet $50 on that, and so on. So you don’t bet like this. If you bet equal amounts on all horses, then you will win if the long prised horse wins, but lose if the short priced one wins. … So you don’t back every horse.
