When it comes to sports gambling there has never been any doubt that in Ireland our favourite sports gambling activity is horse racing. No amount of additional choice made available through online sports gambling is likely to usurp horse race gambling as our favourite national gambling pastime. Some of us enjoy gambling on horse racing on a regular basis whereas others tend to concentrate on the big races, but according to most reports the majority of us will be gambling on horse racing at some time during the year. When it comes to gambling on horse racing, most pundits will claim that form is everything so serious horse race gambling fans are always looking for clues to help them to select potential winners. That is why this afternoon’s Dante Stakes at York is the focus of much attention in the run up to the Epsom Derby on the 6th June. The Dante Stakes at 3.15 pm will feature three of the current top four ante-post favourites for this year’s Derby, making it a must see race for followers of the form book. Jack Hobbs, Elm Park and John F Kennedy are all in the field this afternoon, with only current second favourite for the Derby, Zawraq missing. There has never been a better chance to see the form of leading horses in the run up to a big race, so don’t miss it. Closer to home for Irish regular horse race gambling fans, there are evening meetings at Tipperary and Fontwell Park tonight and many other interesting local meetings over the next few weeks. The horse racing season is well underway and all our tracks offer great racing and an excellent welcome for those lucky enough to attend.
