Playing the ponies at the track has been a rite of passage for generations in this country, and with good reason. The proliferation of racetracks across the land means that the thrill of watching sports live is not reserved only for those who live in major urban areas or are wealthy. Whether harness racing or thoroughbred, most people are never too far away from the sights and smells of the track.

Proximity is not the same as convenience however, and it is simply not practical for some people to spend much time at the racetrack. Off-Track Betting parlors have traditionally been somewhat small and seedy affairs, consisting of smoky fake-paneled rooms with bulletproof glass and dirty linoleum floors. The Internet has come to the rescue again, however, providing a clean safe space to bet on horse racing.

Win, Place and Show with Online Horse Betting

All of the bets normally associated with the racetrack are available at most offshore gaming websites. Bet on your favorite horse to win, place or show--all the while monitoring the odds on your monitor. In addition to straight bets, you can string bets together by betting a quinella, perfecta or trifecta--wagering on the outcome of multiple races.

In just a few minutes you can see the results of your wagers, and there's no line to stand in and tickets to sift through in order to collect your winnings. Going to the track will always be a great way to spend the day with family and friends, but having a more convenient option can come in very handy. When you bet on a horse online and from your home, the beer is cheaper and the parking is free.
