    One of the biggest criticisms we hear about bitcoin exclusive sportsbooks is that they don't offer betting lines on horse racing. In many countries like the UK and Ireland, the central focus of most bookmaker software is horse racing so this is quiet a big omission. Thankfully U.S friendly bookies like BetOnline and Bovada do have online racebooks that allow bitcoin gamblers to wager on horse races.

    Bovada have recently upgraded their mobile app to include a racebook that covers racing from the America, Australia, Ireland and the United Kingdom. The app offers information on jockeys, race scratches and horses from all 80 harness and thoroughbred racetracks across the United States, including Churchill Downs, Fairmount Park, Ellis Park and Belmont Park.

    Betting options are limited to "Win/Place/Show", "Exacta" and "Trifecta" for iPhone and Android users. You can quickly bet on upcoming races by using the "Next 5 Races" option. Rebates are also available.

    Bovada ONLY accepts punters from the United States of America.

    None that I am aware of. If you want to bet on horse racing with cryptocurrencies, then you'll have to make do with HTML5 browser-based betting apps. In the early days web apps were terrible, I'll admit, but they have improved considerably over the past 5 years to the point where I don't think there is much different between apps you download and apps you use from your phones browser.

    No, if you want to wager on horse racing with the Apple Watch then you'll need to signup with one of the major European bookmakers but none of them accept crypto so you'll need to use your credit cards or PayPal.

    Here is out guide to the best horse race betting sites for crypto.

  7. It's a shame that Bovada don't make more of an effort with their racebook and try to cover horse racing in the United Kingdom, Ireland and Australia also. Some of the biggest horse races in the world are the Melbourne Cup, Aintree Grand National and the Cheltenham Gold Cup.
