While the state of Missouri is bordered by five other states with a thriving horse racing scene, Missouri itself is completely devoid of a horse racing industry. There are no live tracks, simulcast or off track betting facilities in the state. While there is a Missouri Horse Racing Commission, they appear to have not held a meeting in almost 10 years.
Missouri Off Track Betting Sites
With no off track betting available, racing fans' best bet is an account with an online racebook. They offer secure payment and withdrawl options, easy-to-navigate platforms, and promotions and rebate programs that help contribute to a positive return on your wagering dollar.
One of the most comprehensive betting platforms for handicappers is the racebook at Bovada. They offer a long list of tracks to bet on in North America and overseas, a first deposit bonus, weekly cash back rebates - whether you win or lose - and track odds on the day of the race.
In addition, Bovada gives horseplayers the chance to make future bets on major events like the Kentucky Derby and Breeders' Cup, and a handicapping tip on a featured race of the week.
Missouri Horse Racing Tracks
While there are rumors that live horse racing once took place in Missouri, the horse racing team here has no idea where that might have been or what the track might have been called, and a online search turns up nothing. Unfortunately for the good folks of the Show Me state, any change to the current status seems unlikely in the near future.
