I've never been to a track before. I race daily on youbet.com and love it. I race all over the world and mainly look for tracks that race between 6 to 10 horses for 5 to 9 1/2 furlongs. My bets are ranging from $20 show, to 10 cent superfecta's, and $5 win. I recently won a free year of service by betting $20 on delta downs and entering a contest and am very happy with that prize considering it's about $135 per year. My largest win ever has been $904 on one race and $1,500 for a whole day. Usually I only make fifty or so when I race, but I love it and your very right, not many race fans on here.

I have heard of you bet.com, They have simacasting Races I won a race at delta downs the other day. an Exacta, it paid 50.00 My favorite horse are one and too, you should check out www.picksandplays.com they are pretty good picking the horses. I love Horse-racing, I probably won't get a lot of response fpor this one but It is ok, I enjoy talking about it. Once I picked uot a race for 29,000 but I didn't box it or anything, so I didn't get anything. I had a headache that day.

I had a similar situation happen with me and was upset for weeks. I bet 5,10,2,1 for 10 cents superfecta, and it came 10,5,2,1....which would have won $150,000 on a $1 bet, so that would have been $15,000 on a $2.40 bet...but no, I had to play it for 10 cents straight. I play random numbers when I play 10 cent superfecta's and have won thousands by doing it this way. Sure there's no logic involved, but the bets that involve no logic what so ever, are the biggest winners of all. Poor odds pay well.

It is hard to pick out 4 horses, most of the time I will put 2 favorites, and 2 longshots. when you bet longshots, you win big time. another thing I don't pick the selections that they have on the program, and and subtract numbers that is how I picked out that 29,000 Trifecta.

Saratoga is the closest big track to me and that is little over an hour from me. We do have some harness tracks closer..I don't gamble on horses and seldom even buy a lotterty ticket..Not my thing but I'm not against it either. xoxoxoxoxo

I haven't been to the racetrack in years. My husband and I liked to go every now and then. We never gambled big or won or lost big neither. It was a fun night out. Our track was simply called Raceway Park.

I'm located in an area where two highly prestigious racetracks are within equal driving distance. I could go to Churchill Downs in Louisville, or Keeneland in Lexington. Churchill Downs may be famous for the Kentucky Derby, but Keeneland serves as the prep point for the Derby runners in the Spring, as well as the Breeder's Cup runners in the Fall. Keeneland's auctions are also world renown for selling some of the highest priced, big names in the Thoroughbred industry. I don't attend either track though. I'll watch a few races when they're on TV, but honestly, I, personally, can't support an industry that causes thousands of horses to be injured or crippled all for the sake of money. It's the "nature of the beast" though and not likely to change any time soon, so I don't fault anyone who does enjoy it "thoroughly". LOL!

Although I live fairly close, I've never been to Thistledown or Northfield to see the races. Years ago when I used to break horses and all that, I was asked to be an exercise girl for one of the race horse owners. I figured it'd be too much of a drive everyday from here. Not doing that is one of my biggest regrets because there's nothing like racing a horse flat out on a track! Believe it or not, I've never bet on a horse, although I do watch the races when they're on tv.
