Horse Racing Gaining Traction While Major Sports Remain Sidelined

Sports Bettors Remain Frustrated But Horse Racing Gives Horsemen And Handicappers Hope

Churchill Downs and Santa Anita are back running this weekend and joins the daily horse racing schedule that includes Gulfstream Park, Tampa Bay Downs, Golden Gate Fields, Charles Town Racing, Fonner Park and Will Rogers Downs.

Bettors are hoping major sports follow the lead and break from the gate soon.

I provided some recent articles and updates at Forbes as horse racing starts to hit its stride again and continues its run into summer racing and on the Road to the Kentucky Derby. Horsemen, handicappers and bettors are all hoping that major sports and racing can continue soon with live competition and wagering options. I update some of those horse racing and major sports situations surrounding betting in an article at Offshore Gaming Association.

I also update a daily horse racing guide at TheLines, where sports betting news is updated with content information you can bet on including Road to the Kentucky Derby races and betting guides like the Arkansas Derby.

While major sports is not an option for wagering currently during the COVID-19 health crisis, there are daily horse racing options with head-to-head wagering at leading online sportsbooks and also William Hill for horse racing and the latest odds, props, futures and season win totals betting for the 2020 NFL season. And you can watch and wager at major online horse racing platforms like TVG, a horse racing network that streams the races live from operating racetracks and partners with major TV networks like NBC and FOX to highlight the biggest races. That includes the recently added Road to the Kentucky Derby races.

Sports fans and bettors may not be watching and wagering in their favorite race and sportsbooks, but bettors hope the games and sports wagering action is just a click away when the NFL season kicks off in September.

You can bet on it.
