Xpressbet may not be the only company that can offer U.S. bettors legal access to online horse betting, but it claims a very strong dedication to the sport. How so? Well, Xpressbet is an online arm of the Stornarch Group. And if you’re really into your horse racing, you may well know that company is one of North America’s leading racetrack owner’s and operators, with Gulfstream Park, Santa Anita and Pimlico just three of the famous courses it owns. It also breeds and owns world-class racehorses, so Xpressbet certainly comes with the backing to some serious players in this noble sport. But is that enough to make Xpressbet the favorite in the race to be the best bet? Let’s study the form shall we?

Layout & Usability
Xpressbet’s website is certainly a fine looking filly on first acquaintance. We’ve often found rival U.S. sites to be a little functional in their design, but Xpressbet shows a much keener interest in elegant presentation and we immediately warmed to it for that reason. Registration for a player account proved quick and uneventful, beyond which we found a superb choice of wagering options to engage with. Xpressbet’s offering covers Thoroughbred, Harness and Quarter Horse racing from over three hundred tracks, so you’ll be hard-pressed to find nothing to get your juices flowing.
Compiling and editing your virtual betting slip is a cinch, and there are even three versions of Xpressbet’s Wagerpad to suit bettors’ tastes. Whether you favor the Wagerpad Classic, Wagerpad Pro or Wagerpage options, we’re sure you’ll find a pretty much ideal environment to facilitate your preferred wagers. With betting covered, Xpressbet ensures you can enjoy the thrill of the actual race with live HD streaming and free replays on tap to complete the experience.
Adding the final gloss to the Xpressbet service is the excellent provision for mobile betting. A custom mobile version of the desktop site offers all the functionality of its parent, but we’re delighted to see native apps for both iOS and Android users! Many rivals offer the former but not the latter, so extra kudos to Xpressbet for adding that additional convenience. A small, but very agreeable detail in our view.
Mobile & Tablet
Xpressbet offers an iOS app and an Android app but it’s just as easy to play on your Smartphone’s browser. You can watch your favourite sports live on iPhone, iPad & Android.

Xpressbet offers excellent 24/7 support, 7 days a week. Xpressbet uses Email, Phone and Snail Mail.
We opened this review pondering whether Xpressbet’s ownership by a venerable racetrack operator and racehorse breeder would necessarily make it an outstanding choice for offline off-track betting. In conclusion, we must say it certainly seems to have paid some very desirable dividends. Xpressbet is undoubtedly one of the strongest services we’ve reviewed to date. The quality of its choice and overall service is first-class, allied to presentation and usability that we feel superior to many of its rivals by some way. If you’re looking for a dedicated, U.S. legal site for horse betting we doubt you can afford to ignore Xpressbet.
