I do love the Shergar Cup – it divides opinion and fair play to those who want to avoid it completely but 10 runner class 2/3 handicaps at Ascot provide some great betting opportunities – especially when you can rule some of the runners out because of the jockey bookings….

The Winter Hill Stakes is one of those rare Group races that takes place at an evening meeting, it’s a Group 3 run over 1m 2f at Windsor on the last Saturday of August.

With an average field size of just over 8 runners during the past decade, the Hungerford Stakes often provides an interesting puzzle for punters to assess

Kentucky Derby 2016: Hats, horses, odds (and odd names)

Plus, once a name is used, it can’t be used again for a long time, if ever.

Who has the best odds?

The overwhelming favorite to win the race is a horse named Nyquist, a 3-year-old colt from Kentucky. The 142nd running of the Kentucky Derby is this Saturday, May 7.

Who won last year?

THAT would be Triple Crown winner and all-around good horse American Pharoah. is excited to see Nyquist Jr.

Even if you’re nowhere near Kentucky and you know nothing about horse racing, you may still be thinking of tuning in (or even dressing up a little). For instance, names can only be 18 characters (including spaces), they can’t have certain artistic or cultural implications and they can’t be named after real people unless the namer gets permission.

Why do they have such weird names, anyway?

Horse naming is a serious business.

How many horses are running?

The whole shebang will be aired on NBC, with coverage starting at 4 p.m. Nyquist (the horse) was purchased by a die-hard Detroit Red Wings fan and named after Gustav Nyquist (the Swedish hockey player). More than that, wearing an fabulous, obnoxious hat is thought to bring good luck (at least, to you and whatever horse you have the most money on). . As of mid-afternoon Saturday, his odds to win the Derby stood at 2-1. There’s Mor Spirit and Mo Tom, Danzing Candy and Cherry Wine, Creator and Exaggerator; it’s really a colorful field. American Pharoah won 2015′s Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes and Belmont Stakes, making him the first Triple Crown winner in 37 years.

Why do I keep hearing about mint juleps and how can I acquire one as soon as possible?

Mint juleps are the traditional drink served at Churchill Downs during the Derby, and they are delicious. The Jockey Club has tight regulations on what kind of names can be used.

Is Nyquist by chance named after an active NHL player?

He totally is. Nyquist Sr. You usually have to wait several horse generations to reuse a name, and names that belonged to big winners or Hall of Famers can never be used again at all. After hundreds of years and thousands upon thousands of horses, it’s no wonder you have to get a little creative. ET.

How can I watch it?

Well, Kentucky! Specifically, Churchill Downs in Louisville.

Why do ladies wear fancy, view-obstructing hats?

It’s a Southern thing. ET. Which one has the most excellent name?

We’d have to recommend Suddenbreakingnews, for obvious reasons. Post time (the start of the race) is at 6:34 p.m.

I know nothing about horse racing but still want to waste some money by randomly betting on a horse.

There are 22 horses running in the Kentucky Derby, each with a name more excellent than the last. Pour over ice, and enjoy the good life. Here’s everything you need to know to get that solid Derby experience. There’s an official Derby recipe, but if you don’t care for exactitude just mix yourself up some sugar, bourbon, water, and crushed mint. perform

Horse Racing Betting Strategies and Tips

For example, instead of paying $2 for an Exacta bet that requires the horses to finish in an exact first and second place order, you can pay $4 for an Exacta Box bet, and you will win the Exacta bet regardless of which of the two horses comes in first.

The reason why you need to start out with the <Track Name> is because you can bet on horse races at many tracks from the horse track you are currently at, so you need to specify the track to the betting clerk.

Exacta Bet – A bet on the exact first and second place finishers in exact order.

To place a $2 Exacta Box bet on horse 2 and 5, you would say, “<Track Name>, $2 Exacta Box on Numbers 2 and 5″ (keep in mind that this is actually a $4 bet since you are boxing the bet).

The following is the correct way to place a bet with a betting clerk:

Trifecta Bet – A bet on the exact first, second, and third place finishers in exact order.

Win, Place, and Show Bet (a.k.a. Never bet more than you can afford to lose. At this point, some people like to spend some time on the paddock to see the horses being walked from the stable to the track, as it adds to the horse racing experience and occasionally one might notice something about a horse that influences the way they bet, such as a horse that appears sluggish or one that seems like it is in exceptional shape.

To place a $2 Win bet on horse number 7, you would say, “<Track Name>, $2 to Win on Number 7″.

While there are a variety of bets, the following are the most common bets, and are more than enough for beginners.

Daily Double Bet – A bet on the first place finishers in two consecutive races.

Once you have taken the time to look over the racing program and the professionals’ advice, it is time to start figuring out which bets you would like to place for the upcoming race.

Win Bet – A bet that the horse you chose will win the race.

Show Bet – A bet that the horse you chose will come in third (a show bet is also a winning bet if the horse you chose comes in first or second).

Place Bet – A bet that the horse you chose will come in second (a place bet is also a winning bet if the horse you chose comes in first).

Box Bet – Any of the above bets can be boxed for an additional wager. The point is to have fun, not to go home without money you need to pay your bills. Across The Board Bet) – Bets on the first, second, and third place finishers; each act as a separate bet.. To keep things fun and not risk too much money, most beginners make $2 bets
