How To Choose A Horse

Understanding the Types of Races

The all-important question, how do I pick a winning horse at the races? Unfortunately, there is no guarantee (though that is the fun of it!), but there are several approaches you can take to give you some idea of where to place your pennies.

But if all else fails, why not pick who you bet on because of the horse's funny name, because you like the colour of the jockey's silks, or because your finger landed on a name when you pointed over the race card are still acceptable and well-used methods.
