Trading Betfair US Horse Racing Markets

US horse racing trading is on the increase due to the current situation around the globe, but how can you make the most of it?

As a regular Geeks Toy user for 10 years now, I've spent time in just about every Betfair Exchange market. Some have been large and lucrative, others not so much...

However, it's taught me two different things that are worth bearing in mind:

1. Low liquidity markets can be less competative.

2. Adapting the betting environment is important.

So with that in mind, I put together the recent YouTube video below. Naturally, I used the Geeks Toy software to create this example.

American Horse Racing Trading Opportunities:

As you can see from the video above, trading volumes are lower than the UK. Although there's still some profit left on the table, and you don't need large stakes to take it.

Tailoring your trades the markets on offer and understanding what influences market behaviour is key. Seeing a US horse is 'overweight' late before post can sometimes produce a variation in price too. It's not the actual weight difference that causes a sporadic spike but more the influence it creates to those viewing online.

Making sure your stakes are small, limiting risk and overall exposure is a sensible move. As I suggest in the clip, you don't want to stake bigger than the market. Doing this is likely to leave you chasing your tail when it comes to exit (and any profit you've accumulated).

With all the unknown's its hard to decide where your attention is best placed right now. The US horse racing markets may not be the best profit on offer, but in the coming months, depending on how the global situation evolves it could be more interesting. Taking a little time out to play a few markets right now can only be a good thing in my opinion, providing you haven't got more pressing matters to address.
