Most people play to win. However, for those who know how to bet on the winning horse, they win while others play. It for this very reason that a good deal of people is goaded into horse betting. In fact, betting on horse races is so avidly enjoyed that it became an integral part of the sport itself. Only a few shades short for it to be the actual essence. 

In retrospect of the past decades, horse betting remained as one of the most popular categories of gambling which are still in existence. Even now, a multitude of people across the world are currently reined-in in this sprightly activity. It adapted to technology and has now evolved into something better than it ever was before. It is now offered in a plethora of platforms such as the Internet.

Of course, there are many other ways to engage in horse betting, but the use of the internet is the simplest and fastest among all of them.  Statistics even prove this. In the recent research done in April of this year, almost all bettors in the study (92%) have online betting accounts and 76% of those bettors are engaged in horse racing. It does not just end there; the rates are still staggering in this very moment.
When asked why, it is probably because the bettors themselves tend to not leave the comfort of their home; all they need to do is to fiddle in the computer or smartphone with stable internet connection. They can do it anywhere at any time depending on their preference. Not just that, it is even safe. Most web-based gaming platforms have been on the market for years and their lasting existence proves that their security system is not to be trifled with.

Knowing that more and more people are getting on this, which horse race should one is betting on? There are plenty to mention but there exist one of the top three among all that retains its prestige throughout the years – Cox Plate. Named in honour of Sir William Samuel Cox who founded the Moonee Valley race club, the weight-for-age classic is Australia’s richest weight-for-age race with stakemoney of A$5,000,000. In the middle of 1999–2005 the race was included in the Emirates World Series Racing Championship, hailed as a global “grand prix” of horse racing. It has been famous for producing champions like the four-time winner Winx and three-time winner Kingston Town. Also famed to be “the greatest two minutes in Australian racing” and considered by many thoroughbred racing purists to be the #1 race on the Australian calendar, the Cox Plate is a race perfused in tradition that it became an integral part of the nation’s history in racing. What makes Cox Plate so great technically though is that it is run over a distance of 2040m, which means in the duration of the event the horses can choose from any number of lead-up races. To the bettor, this means more avenues for betting.
