What Different Types Of Bets Can I Place?

Thanks to online bookmakers, it can be possible to place bets on races from all around the world, not just in the UK. What is more intriguing, though, is that bet types differ between jurisdictions.

You won’t find every bet at every bookmaker, but you will know what each bet entails.
