Once the field for the Kentucky Derby is finalized and post positions drawn, you will be able to see the odds of "match races." Let's review: what are match races in horse racing? Answer: Match races are bets that punters can place on individual horses in a particular race. Instead of betting on whether a horse wins, places or shows, you are instead betting whether one horse will beat another horse! Match races are extremely popular in the United Kingdom.
