Hi everyone,

Trying to broaden my betting horizons and move into looking at US Racing anyone know the best places to look up form/race times, ect.?

I notice quite a few of the tracks have replay players up on their sites which is a super useful tool.

Welcome!

DRF (Daily Racing Form) is the US racing bible. It's subscription based though, although I think sometimes they have feature track cards which they give out for free?

Betfair videos run throughout the whole card (apart from Parx) so easy to follow live racing. As you said most tracks have free access to race recordings on their sites.

One very important piece of advice; stay well clear of in-play trading until you have a really good feel of how races are run. Roughly 1 in 20 races in the US result in an objection or inquiry and roughly 1/3 of those result in a disqualification.

Parx live video is at https://www.parxracing.com/liveracing.php
Once you open it, it will run for the whole meeting, or until you decide to close it. It is about a quarter of a second behind betfair, but has the advantages of showing the betting odds and minutes to post as well as the horses.

Appreciate it! Would anyone recommend which tracks are best to start with?

From a few early attempts pricing up races it seems like there's often a number of absolute no hopes in races. Managed to get odds against on a couple of favs who I had priced up heavily odds on based on the form. Both won easily, hopefully it's always so easy. Grin
