Players bet on trotting, table tennis, and marbles as most popular sports shut down due to the coronavirus outbreak. Trotting is a race where the horse pulls a jockey in a small cart. It has a niche following but has come into the spotlight because football, basketball, and other top betting sports are not playing right now.
