All About the Muscles

A Flair of Fashion

A Bet of Fun
Horse racing is popular among South Africans due to the country’s excellent weather, talented jockeys and powerful horses.
They say “racing, it’s a rush” and if you want to experience it you have to live it. And what better way to experience it than to place a bet? Fairview Racecourse offers everyone (over 18) a chance to try their hand at placing a bet and with the race program’s insightful information of every horse it can’t get easier.
A Few Betting Tips from Racing, It’s a Rush
- You can Bet To Win, which means you place your money on the horse that you believe will be first past the post.
- Betting Each Way means you are putting money on a horse to win and also to place in the first three (sometimes you can bet on a horse placing in the first two or four).
- A Swinger Bet is a good choice for a newcomer as you simply pick two horses that you think will place in the first three.
