OTB Off Track Betting

Off Track Betting or OTB means sanctioned wagering on horse, harness or greyhound racing outside of a race track.

Horse racing is the second most widely attended U.S. spectator sport, after baseball. In 1989, 56,194,565 people attended 8,004 days of racing, wagering $9.14 billion. Horse racing is also a major professional sport in Canada, Great Britain, Ireland, Western Europe, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and South America.

By far the most popular form of the sport is the racing of mounted thoroughbred horses over flat courses at distances from three-quarters of a mile to two miles. Other major forms of horse racing are harness racing, steeplechase racing, and quarter horse racing.

OTB is growing in popularity throughout the United States. OTB facilities offer an alternative to wagering at racetracks. And like betting done at tracks, states receive a portion of the pari-mutuel handle, or take.

The advent of the internet has given a whole new meaning to OTB. Many observers say that Off Track Betting is fast becoming Online Track Betting. Online race books bring betting on your favorite thoroughbred, harness, greyhound racing and jai alai events in the comforts of home.

Horse racing continues to be one of the popular spectator sports in America.

But in its early beginnings, horse racing was a sport that was enjoyed and wagered on mostly by the upper class.

After the Civil War, horse racing tracks opened throughout the east coast paving the way for bettors from all economic sectors to enjoy the thrill of the past paced action.

In the Early days of horse racing, many enterprising bookmakers started 'auction pools' which involved auctioning off bets for each horse in a race.

But this format was short lived because bettors were out of luck if the horse that they wanted to wager on was already taken.

The bookies, known for being innovative, soon realized that setting odds on individual horses would increase betting handle and, in turn, the bookie's hold.

When there was overwhelming money on one horse, the bookmaker would simply lower the odds to increase the attractiveness of other horses in the race. This format is still in use today.

By the 1920s there were more than 300 racetracks in the US in addition to thousands of 'pool halls,' or off-track betting facilities, which were connected to the tracks by telegraph wires.

Here locals could place their bets on horses at a multitude of racing venues around the country.

Illinois was the first state to permit race tracks to own and operate OTB facilities. Balmoral opened Illinois' first OTB parlor, located at Peoria, on September 8, 1987.
