It's all in the details
"God is in the details". This sometimes tiring catchphrase, time and time again, always makes out to be the pure truth, like many other catchphrases. In Horse Racing, be it Online or Real Life, this is especially true. When you make a bet on a horse, you should take in consideration a thousand things. The horse's breeding, its age, with the prime age, and other numbers could be argued, is more or less 9. Inspect the horse's history in the races and also, if possible, check its medical history, to prevent from any surprises like an old Leg injury suddenly coming back when you've got a hefty sum on it. Of course, due to its nature, Horse Racing is far from being an expected sport, in the sense that anything could happen. Also, the Jockey plays an important part, so inspect him as well.

The net is exploding with sites giving you details, statistics and probabilities. There are companies which dedicate their work only for this.
