Here is a quick step-by-step guide explaining how to bet on Fort Erie horse races online.  I’m going to be using the BetOnline racebook for this example because they will be taking bets on all races at Fort Erie racetrack this season.

3. Choose the Fort Erie Racetrack

Now that you’re on the Racebook page you will need to select the Fort Erie Racetrack.  You will find it under the ‘Canadian Thoroughbred’ drop down menu in the left sidebar.  Click Fort Erie to bring up the races at Fort Erie for the day.

4. Select Race and Place Bets

Now that you can see the Fort Erie races for the day up on your screen you can go through and select which races you want to bet on.  You can see the different horses and their current odds for each race, as well as the different bets you can place on each race (straight, exacta, trifecta, etc).  In the screenshot below I’m looking at the seventh race of a Tuesday at Fort Erie Racetrack.  I have a bet of $20 on the favourite.
