No Need to Bet the Farm!
Did you know that wagers can start as low as $2?
You can place a wager on your favorite horse without breaking the bank. This is ideal for those who just want to have a bit of fun. After all, a race is always just a bit more thrilling when you feel you have something riding on the outcome.
There are avid race fans who like to place wagers based on:
- The owner, trainer, or jockey associated with a certain horse
- A horse’s previous win/loss record
- Notorious underdogs
- Certain times/gate numbers/entry numbers
- A horse’s name or lineage
- And many more!
Like any sport, horse racing fans have their own traditions, superstitions, and habits.
You’re welcome to check out our “Overnight Listings” page to see what horses will be racing on the day you plan to place your first wager!
On Track, Off Track, and Online Wagers
You don’t have to be “here” to try out wagering either! At Grants Pass Downs, our philosophy is that when you win, we win. That’s why we’ve made sure to accommodate as many of our wagering fans as possible.
If you want your wager to be part of your overall race day experience, we’d encourage you to place your wager right here at the track.
If you’re in the local area and would prefer to watch from a bar or restaurant, we offer off track wagers from various locations in Portland, Medford, Salem, Bend, Lake Oswego, and more!
And if you’re watching online, we can work with that as well! Our online wagering partners include XpressBet, eBet, AmWest, and more. We also live stream our races with TVG, so you can watch your favorites win live.
If you’d like to study up a bit before placing your wager, you can check out Equibase, where you can view past performances and upcoming race entries. Quick wagers based on fun reasons (like the jockey wearing your favorite color!) and more studied wagers based on past performance can both be fun for their own reasons. Give them a try and see what you prefer!
