Head to the Horse Track for Thrills and Profits

Aug 17, 2007
While some find casinos a little stuffy and dog tracks kind of boring, these same people will flock to the races to get involved in horse betting. Providing an atmosphere that's entirely different that other forms of gambling, there's just something about the thrill of the race and glamour that goes along with this particular sport that reels people in.

The truth is horse betting is a pastime that goes back hundreds of years in human history. Shortly after the first horse was tamed, the sport of horse racing was created, with this creation came horse betting. The sport has grown through the ages with horses bred specifically for racing and bloodlines fiercely protected.

Considered a sport of kings and royalty for many years, the appeal of horse betting and the pomp and circumstance that surrounds it remains high today. Many find this to be a great pastime for a number of reasons. The popularity of this particular sport has these draws:

* Chance to win money. There's no denying the appeal of horse betting falls largely on the fact that people can win money, big money, when they place winning bets. The fun of winning is never overshadowed in this sport where first-place horses are celebrated with wine and roses and winners can take home some serious cash prizes.

* Beauty of the animals. Many who enjoy horse betting actually do so because they simply enjoy watching the animals themselves. There's something quite majestic about watching these tame giants sprint at speeds that are incredible. Their grace and beauty is no doubt a big draw for this sport. So too is the fact that many fall in love with some horse and simply enjoy watching their favorites race and place.

* Atmosphere. The race track is fun and so is horse betting. This is a big draw for many who simply enjoy the camaraderie involved in horse betting. Just like a big football game or other similar sport, the energy involved in the stands is only rivaled by the energy on the track itself.

* History. Horse betting is one of the oldest gambling sports going. Some people simply enjoy being involved in a tradition that dates back hundreds of years and includes kings, queens and people of means.

* Event. A horse race is an event, a big one. The pomp and circumstance involved in a big race can draw people in just for the spectacle itself. The ceremony involved in such events as the Belmont Stakes and the Kentucky Derby are worth watching in and of themselves.

* Legality. Horse betting is one of the few forms of gambling that's legal in most places in the United States. This means that while many cannot enjoy the inside of a casino without breaking the law, they can go and make horse betting a pastime without fear of getting in trouble.

Horse betting is an ancient tradition that's open for the enjoyment of people from all socio-economic classes. At the horse track, people who love horses can rub elbows with the rich and famous while enjoying common bond.
