Racetrack betting is a special promotion where you get betting tickets during a credit purchase. Those tickets can then be used at the racetrack on Island 2810 to bet on ostriches. Wins grant bonus credits to the player per ticket bet.

All applicable commands to racetrack betting are accessed through the RACETRACK base command.

A simple overview:

RACETRACK TICKETS
------------------
View how many tickets you have available for betting. (You can also see this amount in your CREDIT REPORT)

RACETRACK LIST
------------------
This will show you either the spread for the upcoming race, or the results from the previous race. In the spread, you'll see the mount's name and age, the jockey's name and weight, how many 'victory points' they've accumulated individually, and their odds to Win(Come in 1st place), Place(Come in 1st or 2nd place) and Show(Come in 3rd or higher). It will also convert those odds into return per 10 tickets, so you know precisely how much you'd win for that bet.

RACETRACK VIEW

Only usable during the race, it displays the current positions of each mount as the race goes on.
