Best Horse Racing Betting Apps

The information that was once the domain of a select few savants is now widely available to horse players everywhere with the advent of horse racing betting apps. The bevy of apps readily available include tips sheets, virtual stables, live race streaming, statistical toolkits, pace analysis, results, replays, automated ticket makers and more. So let’s look at how such apps can be incorporated into successful wagering.

Mobile Horse Betting Sites

In today’s climate of online wagering platforms, most providers offer basic betting applications that allow players the ability to make wagers, deposits, withdrawals and watch races live from a mobile device. Frequently, online racebooks also provide a “virtual stable” feature that allows players to track workouts and race entries of a particular horse once they enter the runner into the database. One of the most comprehensive betting platforms and apps is TVG, which includes a virtual stable and other handicapping support products. Other, non-wagering companies like Equibase also offer a good virtual stable feature free of charge.

Apps That Track Future Plays

The idea of a virtual stable, of course, is for the player to note runners of interest and be aware of when the horse works or runs. This becomes particularly useful to horse players who develop the skill of being able to watch or “trip” a race and note the habits, weaknesses and successes of a particular runner. Quite often a losing effort from a horse may come down to a bad trip, a jockey error or some other small detail missed by the wagering public. Thus, a player noticing such a trip while watching a race, can tab the runner in his virtual stable and wait for the horse’s next start where the player is likely to find fair betting value. As many handicappers will acknowledge, playing the races successfully isn’t purely a statistical or “on-paper” endeavor. A watchful and experienced eye that can spot ability even when a horse is compromised by some variable is a valuable tool. Players with this skill are well-positioned and well-advised to use the virtual racing stable app.

Stats, Picks And Wager Apps

Other apps, such as Horseplayer Toolkit, provide players with insightful and up-to-date statistics that can help the player isolate winners based on jockey/trainer percentages, layoff data, claim data, and other situational handicapping variables. For the player who prefers to make wagers supported by trends, apps that promote statistical information can be a great asset.

For occasional players who do not enjoy the process of selecting winners on their own, there is no shortage of apps featuring expert plays and picks.

Of course, it is up to the player to determine which app they trust and to this end, experimentation may be the only method of settling on an app the player finds useful. The Daily Racing Form’s ticketmaker app is an innovative and useful tool for multiple race and multiple ticket exotics players.This app is most useful for the intermediate to expert player putting together “main” and “backup” tickets in wagers like the Pick 4, Pick 5 and Pick 6. Ticketmaker allows players to punch in their “A,” “B” and “C” selections along with the amount budgeted for each play before spitting out several combinations of plays based on those selections.

TimeForm is another reliable app that features racecards, handicapping products and tips. The European-based company also offers wagering with TimeForm partners directly from the app and rewards players with bonuses and free bets for doing so. Taking advantage of all the information and features out there is a key part of becoming a successful horse player in the digital age.

Unlike the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf, the male version has been dominated by European-based horses.
