While TwinSpires does not take bets from Texas, other websites do.  These include our good friends at BetUS, which offers a generous welcome bonus (max bonus $2500) and don't forget about their incredible 300% buddy referral program.  Make money sending your friends to BetUS.  They do not ask for a social security number or report your winnings.  18 and up welcome.  In business since 1994.


BetUS takes bets on most North American race tracks as well as international.  They even allow wagering on harness races.

Bet the races with BetUS and get your money back, up to $10, every time a horse you bet to Win finishes 2nd in any of the selected races.  A minimum of $10.00 bet is required for any selected race.  For specific races only.

TwinSpires initiated a lawsuit on the basis that a state amendment violated the Commerce Clause of the US Constitution. The lawsuit was dismissed and TwinSpires stopped accepting wagers from Texans in 2013.   Other websites, BetUS included, were more than happy to fill the void left behind.

Malaysian Horse Racing: A History of the Sport

The history of horse racing in Malaysia is largely influenced by Australian racing. The country's interest in racing was first evident in the 1880s, when organizers began setting up large race meetings twice a year. In 1896, the Straits Racing Association and Penang Turf Club were established. As a result, horse racing in Malaysia has a rich history.
