I'm sure we're all in the same boat, but man am I missing live sports.
Getting together with the boys, having a few beers, and making some bets used to be the thing that I looked forward to most. With all of that gone out the window, I've started playing some online games to fill the void. But, it's not the same- there's nothing like betting on a live sporting event.
FanDuel SportsBook has always been my go-to betting platform, and my buddies and I always play fantasy league through them, too. Recently I read that some horse races were still going ahead without spectators, despite all the madness. I've gone to some horse races in the past with friends and always had a blast, so I decided to get in on the action.
Luckily, FanDuel has a racing app that lets you place bets on racing from right at home. It's separate from the regular FanDuel app but just as easy to download from the app store and start betting. I'm already a FanDuel Fantasy user, so I can use the same credentials to log in and get started, I just have to confirm my social security number. If you're a totally new user, they'll ask you for some additional info, so that they can keep your info safe. It's available in most states, so I couldn't wait to get started.

It'll keep the funds in my wallet separate from the other FanDuel accounts, and even though I've used FanDuel in the past, I still qualify for their awesome new user offer. You'll get $5 to use for your first bet, and FanDuel racing will also match your first deposit up to $50. It's easy to make a deposit using your debit or credit card, AHC, or PayPal. Once you've made your first deposit, you're off to the races! Plus, you can cash out your winnings to your visa debit card- so convenient.
The interface is super easy to use, and there's a ton of Horse Racing events coming up to bet on-Belmont Stakes, Breeders' Cup, Pegasus World Cup, to name a few. I've been having a blast betting on the live Races- so much better than the online games I was playing. You can even watch live races from inside the app.
Plus, cashing out your winnings is super quick and easy. All you have to do is link up your bank account, and you can cash out your winnings at any time.
I've been using FanDuel's Racing App for the last couple of weeks, and my friends have also started getting in on the action. It's a great way to get your fix of live sporting action and make a little money at the same time.
