Why is Horse Racing and Betting so exciting?

Betting on horse racing is one of the oldest styles of gambling. History takes us back to the early 1600s during the reign of King James I. Punters would place a stake on the final placement of horses participating in the race. Overtime the market has changed with bettors now placing bets on various outcomes and multiple races. Horse racing is exhilarating to watch, the horses are tremendous athletes racing at extreme speeds, race results are a quick wait meaning your betting outcome is also quick.
