Capital OTB gives horse racing advice


SARATOGA SPRINGS, NY – Capital Off Track Betting held their annual expo on Saturday to help people prepare for the Saratoga racing season.

The expo gave beginners advice on how to look for a winning horse to bet on.

Director of Media Marketing with Capital OTB Dan Farrell describes racing season in Saratoga as Christmas in July.

Farrell says they hold this handicapping expo each year so newcomers to the sport can learn how to look for horses with the best chance of winning. The seminar also provided people with information on horse ownership.

Whether buying a horse or betting on a horse, the message was simple. Farrell says, "Wager what you can afford to wager, set yourself with daily limits, pick the horses that you feel comfortable with and have fun with it whether you are betting 2 dollars or 200 dollars it's about having fun."

Racing season begins this Friday in Saratoga.
