Horse betting has gained huge popularity recently and has the potential to give a large amount as profit to the bettors. You can win a huge amount of money if you place the bet on the right horse that has the highest probability of winning the race. In North America generally, 3 types of bets are there.
In many horse races, there is a gambling station, where gamblers can bet their money on a horse. Gambling on horses is prohibited at some tracks like Springdale Race Course and Colonial Cup Steeplechase in Camden where betting is illegal due to a 1951 law. Most tracks offer betting where gamblers can pool their money and shared proportionally among the winners once a deduction is made from the pool but in some countries, such as the UK, Ireland, and Australia there is an alternative and more popular facility is provided by bookmakers who effectively make a market in odds. This allows the gambler to ‘lock-in’ an odds on a horse at a particular time and it also provides not only purse money to participants but considerable tax revenue with over $100 billion wagered annually in 53 countries.
Does falling of horse affect the next race?
Horse racing is an enthusiastic sport that generally involves 2 or more horses. There are so many types and styles of doing horse racing for example flat racing, jumping racing etc. and different countries have different styles and traditions in horse racing with different breeds of horse. But here also some breeds of horses are restricted to take participate in the horse race.
The obvious question that exists in the mind of bettors is whether falling of horse affects the next race or not. There exist probabilities where you and horse can get injured as many times during horse racing players and horses fall. The players can also get rib and bones fracture and can sometimes die as well. But the risk factors of getting injured are less as compared to early times. Thanks to the medical advancements, now ambulance and doctor are available at your fingertips. Also currently the tracks are also proper as compared to the earlier times. Also, the horses are more trained and they get professional training by an experienced trainer.
Some Member of the Department of Emergency Medicine at the University of North Carolina found that a four-year-long study of jockey injuries and declared to The New York Times that “For every 1,000 jockeys you have riding [in one year], over 600 have treated injuries.” She added that almost 20% of these had a serious head or neck injuries and they also reported 6,545 injuries between the years 1993–1996. More than 100 jockeys were killed in the United States during the year of 1950 and 1987.
So, if you fall then there is hardly any possibility of you might not get fractured or get injured.
According to The Jockey Club’s Equine Injury Database, nearly 10 horses died every week at American racetracks in 2018 and around 700 to 800 racehorses are injured and die every year, with an average of about two breakdowns for every 1,000 starts. So this is dangerous for both the player and horse so the players should keep in mind that they should give the professional training and horse should be of 2,3years of experience of training otherwise there is a big life risk.
