Harness Racing Betting
Harness racing is a form of Horse racing (link to horse racing in the glossary), and being so, betting on harness racing is almost the same as horse racing betting.
Harness racing is common in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, UK and the USA.
The best way to join any of the Harness Racing Betting agencies conducted on racetrack races that take two forms of horse gaits: pacing and trotting. The difference is that a trotter moves its legs forward in diagonal pairs, right front and left hind, then left front and right hind striking the ground simultaneously, whereas a pacer moves its legs laterally, right front and right hind together, then left front and left hind
There are several types of bet options in harness racing:
Win – Bet on the harness finishing first in the race.
Place – Bet on the harness finishing first or second.
Show – Bet on the harness finishing first second or third.
Daily Double – Bet on harnesses to win at 2 consecutive races.
Exacta – Bet on the first two winners of a race in the exact order.
Trifecta – Bet on the first three winners of a race in the exact order.
Superfecta – Bet on the first four winners of a race in the exact order.
Of course the winning amount of each bet is determined by the odds of the horse to win as set before the race based on the popularity of a given harness in compared to others. Still, the needed information about all Racing Betting Sports, together with Harness Racing, is available on Harness Racing Betting Online.
Harness Races can be conducted into two differing gaits: Trotting Harness Races and Pacing Harness Races, for each you can easily find the Harness Racing Betting Agencies, news and picks. The main difference between the two is that a trotter moves its legs diagonally. Means, right front and left hind goes first, and then the left front and right hind are striking the ground simultaneously. On the contrary, pacer moves its legs laterally- right front and right hind, then left front and left, also simultaneously.
Harness racing betting online agencies are less popular than the regular horse racing and so chances are you may not find Harness Racing in some sports books, even though they might offer horse race betting. Although the Harness Racing sport is gaining more popularity, there is still no reason to compare it with the Horse Racing. The numbers are different and the Horse Racing Betting market is different.
