Horse racing bets: how to win, watching the best horseracing stables

1. Godolphin We usually use the term “stable” to describe horse trainers. But sometimes, by trainers, we mean the owner only. Such is the case with Godolphin (United Arab Emirates). This is a true global horse-owner empire. Godolphin is headed by UAE Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. The main racehorse trainers at Godolphin are Charlie Appleby and Saeed bin Suroor. In Britain, Appleby’s horses are mostly on show.

FAQ
Registering with bookmakers
Is it allowed to register and play with more than one bookmaker?
Of course. You can play with all bookmakers in the world and there's no restrictions on that. But we still recommend you to choose only those bookmakers who are rated "5" or "4" in our Ratings: https://bookmaker-ratings.com/bookmakers-homepage/all-bookmakers/
Why don't the bookmakers allow punters from this or other countries?
It mostly depends on the laws of the country and on the bookmaker's interest to operate in this country. For instanse, online betting is prohibited in the USA, so European bookmakers don't deal with American clients. Former USSR countries' suspicious market is not what some bookmakers look for as well.
I forgot my password. Can I re-register and would that not cause my account suspension?
Bookmakers don't allow re-registering. So in most cases duplicate registration could cause your account either suspended or limited while your new account balance could be transferred into the initial one. In any case we don't recommend re-registering, it's better contacting the Support if you happen to forget your password.
Bank transfers (cards/bank accounts)
Which card would be appropriate to deposit and withdraw money from bookmakers' accounts?
Visa Classic debit or credit card can be used both for deposits and withdrawals. Mastercard is also suitable for deposits, but a number of bookmakers, William Hill for instanse, don't allow withdrawals to Mastercard issued by non-British banks. Note that Visa Classic is appropriate to deposit and withdraw at all bookmakers, in contrast with Visa Electron.
Can I use my Visa Electron card to deposit and withdrawal from bookmakers' accounts?
It depends on the bookmaker and the bank that issued your card. WE strongly recommend to use Visa Classic for this purpose, as Visa Electron is more suitable for using in ATMs and terminals.
Is a bank transfer instant?
No, it is not. You should get this kind of info at the bank or the payment system support service you were using for a transfer. Usuaully it takes 3-5 working days for a transfer to be completed.
