What US bookies offer in-play horse racing bets?

In-play wagering, where you can bet on a race while it is being run, is widely available on offshore gambling websites, but Betfair is the only provider licensed to conduct such betting in the U.S. and as of early 2019 was only able to offer it in one state: New Jersey.

U.S. players who decide to open an account with an offshore horse betting site will face some difficulties: You likely won’t be able to use a credit card to fund your account and withdrawals are similarly problematic and may charge you for the privilege of collecting your winnings.

It’s also true that U.S. horse racing bettors have no one to turn to if they have a dispute with an offshore site, unlike in the regulated U.S. market.
