It will come as little surprise to most that online betting has continued to rise; after all we use our smartphones to buy things like everyday grocery items so it was only a matter of time before some quirky technical innovations soon meant we could access our favourite wagering sites on the go.

The horse racing industry is as fast-paced as the majority of the tracks on which the horses run meaning we also need quick, reliable and intuitive tech to keep up; that’s why over the last year’s we’ve seen a dramatic rise in the amount of horse racing betting apps, perfectly catered to punters on the move.

From promos to in-play features, here are some of the best horse racing apps for 2019:


And they’re off- and we start with Betfair, the go-to app for most if you like wagering online. The app itself is easy to use and navigate, everything is very clear and intuitive and deposit/withdrawal methods are decent, or at least in line with other big bookmakers.

If you have a smartphone you can even login with touch ID for extra security and the customer service is all helpful if not available around the clock. To back a horse racing acca, or any other bet, it’s again straightforward and there’s a variety of games to play away from the turf.

If there’s a big race or festival coming up, like the recent Grand National, you’ll also find detailed info on all the runners and riders.


Some of the best bookmaker horse racing apps found on are unique and Ladbrokes is no different in that not only are players allowed to wager on UK races but Ladbrokes enables you to skim through the horse races taking place all around the world.

The tabs are also clearly laid out to enable you to view current and future races as well as specials for the major festivals.

Like most of the best apps for 2019, you can also watch some races live whilst you bet in play too and then there’s the Odds Boost promotion that can even increase your winnings.

Paddy Power

Renowned for their tongue-in-cheek marketing campaigns, Paddy also offers a well put together app perfect for horse racing.  There are plenty of great features to keep track lovers involved, including a swift ‘in-play’ feature that allows you to deposit in no time at all and it’s also great for showcasing stats and current/previous form

There are also a number of exclusive horse racing promos that can’t be matched by close rivals and the app is available from both Apple’s app store and the Android store.
