What Service Would You Use To Bet On Horse Racing?

My home track Canterbury Park has closed for the season and im not to into their simulcast facility plus Canterbury park is about a hour away. So to make a trip up their every day for a few races doesnt pan out cost wise, especially since im not a big player.
Anyways i have been looking into a couple of forms of wagering from home like TVG’s interactive wagering system that DISH Network has. Also i saw a ad in the DRF i believe it was, for a New York OTB I think literally called NewyorkOTB or something. On the site it states that they are in the US and US Regulated. Which sounds good but i didnt know that was possible. But then again i may be thinking about Sports betting and how that for sure isnt legal in the US (Except vegas i think).
Which brings me to the third option i have been looking into, which is off shore betting services like Bet Jamaica or Legends Sportsbook. Ive looked into these to, but the fact that they are offshore and that they send Cashiers checks to them and from them to you via Fedex makes me a little wary of this idea.
If any of you have any experience with any of these or know of reasons to use them or not i would really appreciate the info, thanks!

Babysitting A Sixth Grader – Is He Too Young To Bring To The Horse Races And Hooters?

Doing a neighbor a favor by watching the boy but I have a few of my own stops I have to make during the day – one is to the track to place some bets and the other to stop by and see a friend real quick who works in a „Hooters” type sports bar. Is it wrong for him to tag along or would that be too much for someone that age.
Personally if I were a Sixth Grader I’d like idea … what do you say?

How Does Horse Betting Work?

I heard you can win by just placing your bet on just one horse……can you not make much from that?

What Is The Difference Between Horse Racing, Dog Racing, Deer Hunting And ….micheal Vick’s Case?

Ok…I have anaylized Mike Vick’s case and other animal sporting events. Government sanctioned animal sports have been in place for decades and the animal rights people have had been quiet until now.
First horse racing. These animals are injected with steriods and overburdened to win races. There is money bet on their outcome. If they seriously break a leg, then they are put to sleep.
Next is dog racing…Greyhounds…Big money is wagered on their outcome. These animals are bred for racing. They are injected with dangerous steriods. If they lose their competitive edge or get injured, then they are thrown to a shitty kennel and are forgotten. Some are even put to sleep.
Finally….Deer Hunting…This sport pisses me off. How can some Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia or West Virginia red neck go and blow defenseless bambi’s brains out and get to hang the head on the wall? They seldom eat the animal. Where are the animal rights activists for this?

I’m Writing A Novel In Which The Antagonists Fix Horse Races For Betting. What Are Some Ways Of Doing This?

Some years back, the security wonks who monitor betting patterns at tracks and try to detect things that are, ahem, funny, noticed that a particular trainer’s horses always seemed to lose when they were the betting favorites. Drug tests came up negative and there didn’t seem to be any pattern as far as riders involved. So the security wonks put an undercover informant into the stable, as a groom to see what they might find out.
What they found out was that ‚long about 1:00 AM, the trainer was coming out to the stable and putting horses on the hot walker…and leaving them there until 5:00 AM. Four hours on the walker at a brisk walk the morning of the day they were supposed to race. No wonder they were losing.
One of the most interesting „fixes” I ever heard of, which is supposedly true, didn’t involve anything illegal at all.
Back in the days before the Vegas casinos were a part of the tracks’ pari-mutuel network, you bet with the casino bookie at the odds the book offered. There were casinos that trumpeted that they would pay off at track odds on wagers made at their books. All very legal.
Well, with pari-mutuel wagering, if you bet a large sum of money to show on a horse that ultimately finishes out of the top three, you can skew the payoffs on the horses that do finish in the top three. You can actually have the show payoffs larger than the win payoffs.
What a syndicate of smart guys did was go to the casinos and find out which of them would pay track odds for bets at a small track out in the boonies somewhere– the kind of track where the mutuel handle for all the races for the whole day might be under $50,000, and the show pool for one race might be $3,000. And the smart guys made some bets with the books for races at this track, just long enough to establish credibility.
When the day for the score dawned, they had a guy go to the track and bet $5000 to show on a horse that was guaranteed to finish up the track. And then the other parties to the scheme went to the casino books all over town and put down substantial show bets on the horses that were pretty certain to finish in the top three.
It worked like a charm. The dud finished out of the money, and the payoffs to show on the other horses were in triple digits. The smart guys went to the casinos to cash in.
They collected their winnings, but were told in no uncertain terms that those would be the last bets they ever placed at those books. And they better leave town.

Horse Racing, Biggest Classic Coup?

Arnold Rothstein was at New York’s Belmont Track when he had the brainwave that was to land him one of the biggest legitimate killings in racing history. Surveying hte crowds clustered round the bookies, he realised the men taking the bets would be too busy to think clearly as the big race action hotted up. He turned to trainer Max Hirsch and said, „what have we got running”?
The only horse with a real possibility of winning was a five yr old called sidereal, but Hirsch planning to scratch him for a bigger race the following week, had left him behind the stables.
‚Get him here’, snapped Rothstein. I’ll get the money organised’.
The gangster took no chances that his men would be recognised. He borrowed 40 runners from acquaintances who owed him favors. They spread the best through all the on course bookmakers in small amounts.
