BEGINNERS GUIDE

 

Is it your first time experiencing the thrill of the races at Ffos Las?

 

Check out our guide that will help you get an idea of what to expect at the racecourse.

1. PICKING A WINNER

Study the raceday programme and take on board the comments in the summary for each race, as this will indicate current form of the favourites. Visit the Pre-Parade Ring & Parade Ring around 25 minutes before each race, as this will allow you to take a closer look at horse you fancy edging your bets on. However, you may have as much luck picking the horse because you like its name or you like the colour of the jockey’s silks. Head over to trackside to cheer on your runner – fingers crossed that yours will be first past the post! .

2. PLACING A BET

Putting on a bet at the races is all part of the experience and we challenge anyone to not scream with frustration or delight as their horse approaches the winning line!

You can put as little as £2 on a horse with either a ‘To Win’ (first to finish) or ‘Each Way’ (placed 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th depending on number of runners). ‘Each Way’ will be twice the cost, because you’re placing one bet on the horse to win and another bet on the horse to be placed.

There are, of course, other betting options but if you’re a novice, it’s best to stick to the more simple options.

There are 2 ways to bet – either with the betting shop or with the on-course bookmakers, that can be found at various locations around the racecourse.

3. CLAIMING YOUR WINNINGS

Lucky enough to back a winner? Head back to your bookmaker to claim your winnings. You’ll just need to wait for the jockeys to be weighed in and the announcement made over the tannoy for it all to be official before they pay out.

Please be gamble aware and only gamble what you can afford. When the fun stops… stop!
