If you love to watch horse race and bet on horses then you must be aware that before the race starts you will have to choose a horse that is called claiming a horse. There are some things that you must keep in mind because the money involved can be really high. If you really want to claim on a horse you should look for a horse who you think has the potential and in your opinion is undervalued by the current owner.

How to claim a horse

  • The first thing you need to do is not rule over your money at any horse that sees, you have to familiarise yourself with the rules of the ongoing races in the state because the rules of the races can completely differ from one state to another. The best thing you can do beforehand is to do your research.
  • Selecting a trainer. Choosing this necessity and some people do not pay much attention to this fact over the horse but the truth is, this thing is as important, as the other one. You need to look for a trainer who has a great win record on the track. You can also ask for a recommendation from the existing owner of the horse.
  • Choosing a horse to claim. Just like the trainer we are forcing you to do is look at the horse’s performances and as a part of that, you can see in the recent form of the horse. You can definitely take the guidance and suggestions from the trainer that you have chosen because he is an expert and he will be the one working with the horse in the future.
  • Make your trainer gather some backside gossips about the horse and its condition, because the owner will not tell you everything about the horse and will try to represent the horse as the best, but you must know that some of the owners try to defraud people in order to get rid of a horse with some problems.
  • Getting an owner’s license. If the horse your chosen is not your first horse, then you already have a license but if it is your first horse, you will have to get a special license for claiming the horse.
  • Depositing the funds to the bookkeeper of the horseman in order to place your claim at the track.
  • On the day of the race, make sure the trainer looks at the complete condition of your horse and if it’s ready or not.
  • If the trainer is confident about the physical inspection, we can go ahead and rock the claim slip.
  • Keep in mind during the race if your horse performs good and doesn’t win, it is not a problem because it is to your advantage.
  • If you find out that more than one person has dropped the claim, go to the bookie in order to see if you have won and got the horse.
  • Get your trainer to halt the new horse before taking it back to your barn.
