Updated In April, 2017 - Online Horse race betting is perfectly legal activity in the USA. The best horse betting sites in April, 2015 may offer other services that are frowned upon by the government but that hasn't stopped millions of online poker players, casino gamblers, sports bettors and horse race bettors. The horse betting sites below work with all of the horse tracks in the United States. Even Bet365, a European bookmaker, accepts bets on races at dozens of US tracks. Horse betting sites, also known as racebooks, allow you to bet on races both quickly and easily. New horse race bettors who use the links below will receive 5-8% in rebates. A horse betting rebate is a portion of all bets - wins and losses - paid to you on a weekly basis. If you bet $500 on the horses in a week you will receive $25 to $40 back. It doesn't matter if you win or lose, you will receive your weekly horse betting cashback when you use the links below. All five of the top U.S. horse betting sites in 2015 have fast withdrawals. They pay just as quickly, if not a little faster than the state licensed online racebooks. Cash transfer payouts from these horse race books can take as little as 12 hours but generally no more than 72 hours. The first four U.S.A. racebooks also offer poker and casino. They represent the three largest U.S. poker sites online in 2015 and some of the most popular USA casinos.

Picking a winning horse is an odd mixture of both art and science. While ultimately it is impossible to develop a system with a near perfect record of choosing winners, gamblers can easily increase their profits by following a few simple tips. These horse betting tips help to increase the odds of successfully choosing a winner, thus increasing the amount of money made over time. Use these tips at the 2015 horse betting sites listed above. This list of new sportsbooks in 2015 has a section on new racebooks that you may find interesting.
First, only choose horses that have previously won races. Those who have placed or won before are much more likely to do so in the future. Avoid horses for which there is little information about past races. Above all else, never bet on proven losers.
The best choice is often the horse which has a record of winning, is given good odds, and hasn't been bet on too heavily. Hyped or popular horses aren't usually good choices, even though they often do win the race. The reason for this is the odds are usually against you to where it doesn't make it favorable to bet. Basically, you won't get anything if they happen to lose and won't profit enough if they actually win. So avoid these types of betting situations.
When the track is wet, you'll want to focus on choosing a fast starter. Knowing which horses start fast and which ones don't takes a little research. Those who are familiar with the horse and have seen it run previously will have an advantage in this regard. If you don't have the necessary information required to make a good choice, then simply don't bet on the race. Choosing to do nothing is still an excellent choice, as you are assured to keep your money.
You should also give preferences to a horse under certain circumstances. If the horse hasn't run recently, then this is a poor indication. The horse may have suffered a setback or even an injury which would account for the absence. Because of this, you should focus on choosing winners among those horses that have been recently active. They're more likely to run a better race, improving your chances of winning or placing.
Finally, the jockey can definitely help influence the race. That is why so many owners choose experienced jockeys, and are willing to pay the extra money required to secure their services. In longer races, a jockey can help to control the horse until the right moment when the pace is in the horse's favor. Therefore, you should pay particularly close attention to whom is riding a horse if the race is a mile or longer in distance.
We have detailed online horse betting site reviews for 2015 on this website so I will just list some basic reviews for the online racebooks listed above. First I want to share my insight on the advantages to betting on horses online vs at live horse race tracks. I have lived within 20 miles of one of the major racetracks in the USA all of my life; Balmoral. I will admit that it is pretty cool to go to Balmoral on live racing nights. Watching the horse race on a web browser simply cannot compare to watching the race live. I could certainly do without the crowds though. Online horse betting sites and racebooks have many advantages over live race tracks. They include bonuses, free horse bets, better payouts and horse betting rebates. The same is true if you compare our featured Internet horse betting sites to the state operated horse betting sites available in some states. Simply put, these offshore racebooks dominate both the live racetracks and the licensed horse betting sites. When you factor in bonuses, better odds, rebates and the free horse bets you can expect to win around 25-35% more money - or lose 25%-35% less - when you bet on horses online. Here are some mini U.S. horse betting site reviews in 2015:
