Best Horse Racing Free Bets

If you head over to our free bets page, you will find the best sign-up bonuses for new horse racing customers, plus the best special offers for existing customers for horse racing, greyhounds, football and other big sports events.

When you are looking for a free horse racing bet, you should think about which bet is most suitable for you. What is your stake? What is the bonus amount? Are you looking for a risk free bet? What are the terms and conditions?

If you choose a risk free bet, such as the Paddy Power £20 Risk Free Bet, if your selection loses you will get your money back. If your selection wins, you get your returns less the stake.

One of the other most popular sign-up offers is a deposit boost, such as the Betfred Bet £10 Get £60 or the 888Sport Bet £10 Get £30. If you stake £10 on horse racing, you will receive a deposit boost to the specified amount.


As always, please make sure you check the terms and conditions before placing your bets.


Popular Horse Racing Bets

The most popular horse racing bet is the Single - backing a horse to win (or place).

However, with most horse racing free bets, punters are able to use them in a variety of markets. You could place an each-way bet, but multiples such as doubles and trebles and the popular lucky 15 or Yankee are usually accepted, too, and you could even go for a bigger acca (accumulator).

Money Back Specials are another form of free bets. They give customers a free bet when, for example, their horse falls at the last fence when winning, finishes second to the favourite or simply when you don't get a run for you money, such as this BetVictor Money back if your horse doesn't run offer.
