Horse Racing Guide To Picking a Winner - Tote Tips

Horseracing GuideRight, you've done all the right things so far, ensured your dressed properly, got you're race card and morning paper and now it's time to get down to the real business of selecting a horse race winner for your tote bets to pay for some of your expenses.

The first rule is that you should have an amount of money that you are going to gamble and put this down as your fun money for the day and if you can still have it there at the end of the day you will have done well. Always remember that you should only gamble with money you can afford to lose.

When trying to select a winner there are so many things to take account of and for the more seasoned racing professional all these considerations will be taken into account as it is more like a job than a fun day out. They will have studied the horse racing form of the race the conditions of the day, how the horse looks in the parade ring and how it goes down to the start, only then will the professional punter part with his money.

We will cover all these areas in more detail to help you understand some of the finer points of picking the winner in the horseracing betting, but for most this would take the fun out of the day and so the you may decide to select a winner based on the name of the horse the colours that the jockey is wearing or just simply let your partner decide so you can put the blame on them if your horse does not win, oh, of course there is the famous close the eyes and pin selection.

Whichever way you go about it we wish you all the very best.
