The Starting Price Model

British racing works on a unique starting price model whereby the on-course market determines the industry SP at which bets are settled in betting offices and online. The whole landscape of racing betting has changed with the arrival of exchanges generally and Betfair in particular. Betfair’s back and lay prices now drive the on course market and consequently the price at which bets at bet365 are settled.

Several leading UK betting brands now offer best odds guaranteed on racing in the UK and Ireland. Customers can take an early price on the morning of a race or have their winning bets settled at the SP. Customers are paid out at the bigger price of the two and this is guaranteed. The board price may ultimately prove to be bigger than the starting price and bets will be settled accordingly. The latest development is to enhance the best price offer which bet365 call Best Odds Guaranteed.

Racing On Terrestrial Television

Another development that could have implications for bet365’s racing involvement is the moving of terrestrial coverage of racing from Channel 4 to ITV. Viewing figures have fallen since a new company began working with Channel 4 to produce their racing output in 2012. The move to ITV could affect the amount of betting coverage in the broadcasts and this will filter through to horse racing turnover with online sportsbooks such as bet365.

One prominent and vocal trainer suggested that racing coverage on TV should have no betting content and focus on the horses and people behind the sport. However, betting and racing are intrinsically linked unlike other sports such as Football. Most viewers who follow horse racing do so for the betting element. It's almost a certainty that bet365 will be watching closely to see if betting still features heavily in the coverage.


bet365 have become a leading betting brand partly due to their range of sports and markets, especially in the live betting environment. They also invest heavily in promoting the brand and Offers are related to horse racing. The sport in Britain towards the end of 2016 is in a state of flux but bet365 are unlikely to stop investing as many of their core online customers still have racing as part of their betting portfolio.

Horse racing is the traditional betting sport in betting offices in the UK. Customers in the British and Irish online betting market expect a good racing service because of their background and bet365 deliver with a extensive range of races and betting opportunities for meetings in Britain and important international races.
