For decades, bettors have handicapped horse races the same way – with cumbersome race programs loaded with too many numbers and fonts too small to read.  

1/ST BET is changing the game by taking all of that information and presenting it in a way that suits the on-the-go bettor.  So no matter if you’re an experienced horseplayer or this is your first time betting the races, 1/ST BET is the perfect betting and handicapping app for you.

So How Does it Work?

1/ST BET utilizes a library of more than 200,000 past races and more than 50 handicapping factors to analyze today’s races.  We instantly identify recent races just like the one you’re betting and pinpoint the most common shared characteristics (factors) between the winners of those past races. Then we analyze today’s race with those factors to calculate the real time projected Win, Place and Show percentages of each horse in the race.  

Once you’ve handicapped a race and picked the horses you want to bet, you can wager right from the app.  Our easy-to-use, seamless bet pad was created for horseplayers on the go.
