After straggling behind major competitors, Ladbrokes has spent the last few years focusing on improving its digital betting service. This is clear on its racing page, where Ladbrokes has matched – and in some cases surpassed – the efforts of the other big-name bookies.
Ladbrokes has one of the cleanest racing pages out there, with minimal cross-marketing of other betting products. The interface makes it easy to find meetings, races and special features. Ladbrokes’ racecards are among the best in the business, offering direct access to Racing Post overviews and form information, audio and video streaming, course maps and tips on popular selections.
Ladbrokes provides full coverage of UK, Irish, South African and US racing, with early prices offered for the next day’s races. Multiple markets, including the tote pools, are available for both UK and international racing.
Ladbrokes also offers some attractive racing specials, with money-back specials on high-profile meetings and occasional day-long money-back specials on daily racing.
Benefits of betting on racing at Ladbrokes
Ladbrokes does a better job than most in packing useful information into its standard racecards. UK and Irish racecards include Racing Post race and entry overviews, horse ratings and a course map. They also show which selection is getting the most support from other punters and provide access to a syndicated Racing Post form portal, where you can access additional statistics and information on the race entries.
A "Nag Me" notification service
Ladbrokes offers account holders a free “Nag Me” racing notification service. The service provides e-mail notifications on up to 25 horses you’re interested in, including notifications on when they’re racing and their latest results.
In-depth statistical resources
Ladbrokes offers not one but two racing stats services – a syndicated Racing Post statistics portal and the Ladbrokes Horse Racing Statistics Centre. The latter is the best independent statistical database we’ve come across. It allows you to track racehorse form and access past race results, including horse-by-horse performance assessments.
Live audio and video streaming of UK races
Ladbrokes offers daily live coverage of a selection of UK race meetings. Residents of the UK and Ireland can access video streaming of a race by placing a £1.00 qualifying bet on the race. Free live audio commentary is available on every race, even if you don’t have a Ladbrokes account.

Ladbrokes racing odds
On average, Ladbrokes’ racing odds tend to be only on a par with those of the other major bookies. However, Ladbrokes often looks to offer the best odds possible on popular race entries for high-profile races, so look here especially if you want the best value on a banker.
