Sun Bets Horse Racing

Owned by Tabcorp and part of the big Sun newspaper brand, Sun Bets are a bookmaker who like to get behind British sport in a big way. As such, there is a great choice when it comes to horse racing and at a time when some sportsbooks are excluding all meetings from their list, it’s a positive thing to see.

If you are a fan of one of the oldest organised sports in the world what can you actually expect when you look to place a horse racing bet here?


Log on to your Sun Bets account on any day of the week and you will find all meetings from the UK and Ireland given extensive coverage by the bookmaker. All of your usual betting markets are here and the operator is very quick to publish ante post options ahead of the big events such as the Grand National or the Cheltenham Festival.

Beyond the list of domestic racing, Sun Bets also publish an extensive set of markets for meetings held overseas. Naturally the big events such as the Melbourne Cup and the Prix De L’Arc De Triomphe are here but there are more regular meetings from around the world at the same time.

On a random day in August 2017, we found markets for events in South Africa, France and Australia so there is truly an international element to the horse racing options at Sun Bets and customers should never be short of a wager.


Despite the fact that they were only launched in 2016, Sun Bets are already on the major odds comparison sites so we can tell by checking those that they provide some of the best prices across all of the main sports.

Horse racing can be included in that list and they seem very competitive here both in ante post and live betting so it’s a good place to be if you want value from the horses over the long term. Sun Bets, like all good bookies, also offer a Best Odds Guarantee System for all UK and Irish Horse Racing so, if you back a horse ante post and its SP price turns out to be higher, you will be paid at the longer odds if your bet is a winner.

At present, Sun Bets haven’t been involved in regular promos for the horse racing markets but on occasions they have offered price boosts for the big meetings. A new customer, enhanced odds deal on Aidan O’Brien to train a winner at Royal Ascot in 2017 was also published so look out for these offers from time to time.

If you are looking for a new bookmaker either for regular or occasional horse racing bets, you are looking out for a good combination of choice and value. Sun Bets certainly provide the choice with an excellent set of markets that covers all established UK and Irish racing together with some of the best events from around the world.

Value is also provided with competitive pricing plus that best odds guarantee on all UK and Irish meetings so, this is a great place to play if you are a fan of horse racing and want the best of everything from your betting provider.
