How to bet on the horse races at Leopardstown Racecourse

Betting the tote can best be compared to the odds per ticket in the national lottery. Below we have given clarification to the industry-specific lingo you may hear when tote betting on the horse races:

You can place your bet in two different ways when it comes to the Leopardstown Racecourse. There are clearly marked tote betting stations around the track. You may place your bet at any of these stations. You may also place your bet online if you prefer to do so.

There are two ways to mathematically figure the odds in horse racing. The first is fractional, which is seen most often in the UK, and also applies to Ireland, including at Leopardstown Racecourse, including on the horse track scoreboards. The second way to figure the odds is via decimal.

The two numbers in the fraction represent, first, how much you could win by betting, and the second number is the dollar amount you need to bet in order to place a bet. The greater the number, the less likely it is that a particular horse will win the race. If the second number of the fraction is higher than the first, that indicates that a particular horse is favored to win the race, for example in these 2/9 and 4/11 fractional odds.

Decimal odds provide one number to figure the odds of winning, represented in numerical form, that give you the decimalized version of the odds on that horse. In order to figure your win, simply multiply the decimal number by the amount you want to bet, and the result is the dollar amount you will collect if that particular horse wins the race. The smaller the total number, the more likely that particular horse is to win.

To place your bet, you’ll want to decide which horse or horses, you would like to place your bet on. To select a horse to bet on, you may place your bet according to the statistics from the racecard, which provides the recent statistics on the horse, including its performance in the last several races; and also its performance in similar conditions on similar tracks. You could instead simply bet the numerical odds on the horses, as a lot of race attendees opt to do; Or you could seek advice on the odds from industry betting professionals.

Almost everyone has their own type of system of picking a winning horse, such as the total of the number of consonants in a horse’s name, or the color of the jockeys socks, or essentially it could be any other winning combination they feel has helped them win over the years. Everyone has their own method of picking a winner, that is the fun behind placing a bet.
