Watch this video tutorial to learn how to place a bet on some horse or dog races. When it comes to betting on the horses or dogs, the process is very similar. The betting shop that you are in will have all the days' races hanging from the walls which will show times, distances and show the form and odds of the horses that are running. Decide which horse you like the look of, get a blank betting slip, write the venue and time of the race at the top, then either the horses name or just it's number and how much you want to bet on it. When betting on horses you don't have to bet on them just winning. If betting on a horse with larger odds, an each way bet might be better as you have more chances of winning. When betting, make sure that you have enough time to study the form and write the bet out. Once written, take it up to the counter with your money. Once the bet is placed remember your jockey's colors and get ready to watch the race. Good luck!
