Start out by making sure the horse you bet on has 4 legs ( just messing with you ) seriously it takes time to read and understand a racing form .Eventually thats a must . It is a horse players Bible for now you are gonna have to probably pick a track and concentrate on trainers ,jockeys try and find out when a certain trainer claims (buys ) a horse that has been with another Trainer how often does he do good with a horse he just claimed . look and see how the horse ran time before if in the form you see the horse ran 1,1,1,1 6th during the race why that happen did he get tierd or was there a track bias that day most horses won from off the pace so now keep an eye on him for next time There is so much to look for but I can suggest follow a few guys on here as you learn but dont think because one of us say 100 ,200 500 dollars on a horse that we are gonna win for sure. Always bet what you can afford and if you lose dont start jumping track to track to try and get even
GL and have fun
