Paddy Power racing

Paddy Power’s betting platform for racing offers a winning combination of the bookmaker’s trademark specials, superb market coverage of racing – in the UK and Ireland, and elsewhere around the globe – and an attractive range of special features.

Its comprehensive racing coverage and unbeatable specials make it a good choice as one of your primary racing betting resources.

Benefits of betting on racing at Paddy Power

The best racing betting specials, daily
Paddy Power is known for its daily betting specials, including racing specials – from extra places being paid to money back on your selection. It’s worth watching for these specials, which can tilt the odds in your favour for races.

Live streaming of UK and Irish racing
Paddy Power offers account holders in the UK and Ireland free access to comprehensive live streaming of horse racing. To access live streaming, just click the Watch Live tab and choose the race you want to watch.

The earliest early prices – from the Epsom to Pukekura
Paddy Power offers odds on all of the next day’s racing, for international races as well as for racing in the UK and Ireland.

Access stats, tips and more via the inFormer stats portal
The colourful inFormer stats portal provides virtual race previews, in-depth race cards packed with helpful pointers and “live” race animation with text commentary. On the down side, the inFormer portal takes some getting used to because it works differently to the main site and has a somewhat gimmicky approach. Also, links in the Tips section point off-site to the Racing Post, so there isn’t the seamless integration achieved by the likes of Ladbrokes or bet365.

Expert daily naps for all UK and Irish racing
A great naps tool is located on the Tips section of Paddy Power’s racing page. You can browse naps from the most respected racing publications for every race at every UK and Irish racecourse.Tote betting
Paddy Power provides access to tote betting markets for all UK and Irish racing. Markets offered include the Tote jackpots, Tote Win and Tote Place pools, Tote Trifecta and Tote Exacta.

Paddy Power’s racing betting coverage

Paddy Power offers the following markets on all UK and Irish races:

  • winner
  • place
  • insurebet
  • match
  • forecast
  • tricast.

The markets for international races aren’t as extensive, but typically include win, forecast and tricast markets.

Paddy Power also offers access to tote markets via the Tote tab on its racing page. A useful feature is that you can filter races and meetings by pool type.

If there’s no live racing on, you can wager on Paddy Power’s virtual racing, with at least four virtual races held every hour.

Paddy Power racing promotions and specials

Paddy Power has a reputation for offering strong racing specials. Place and money-back specials are offered on almost a daily basis, and it’s worth looking out for offers of enhanced each-way bonuses, accumulator bonuses and payouts on disqualified winners. During major race meetings like the Cheltenham Festival, Paddy Power offers multiple daily specials. However, in recent years other bookies have tended to outcompete Paddy Power in this area, with Boylesports in particular offering strong daily racing specials – along with more competitive odds.

Paddy Power racing odds

Paddy Power’s racing odds offer less value than the market average due to the comparatively highly overround this bookie uses to set its odds. However, this can vary horse by horse so you’ll need to consult an odds comparison to ensure you’re getting value betting on Paddy Power. For consistently strong racing odds you’re better off placing your racing bets at William Hill.

Like most of the major UK and Irish bookmakers, Paddy Power offers best odds guaranteed on all horse racing.
