Im trying to add value into my database and i keep getting the following error "You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '','','4','Telegraph (IRE)','3','9-3','','57','Evans, P D','28/1 ','Egan, John '' at line 1"


my query looks like this
mysqli_query($db,"INSERT INTO `Horses` (`Date`,`Track`,`Runners`, `Going`, `Distance`,`Class`,`Place`,`Losing_Dist`,`Stall`,`Horse`,`Age`,`Weight`,`Headgear`,`Horse_OR`,`Trainer`,`Odds`,`Jockeys_Claim`,`Comments`,`Race_Name` )VALUES ('$date','$place','$norunner','$going','$distance','$class',$place','$distance_bt','$stall','$horse','$age','$weight','$headgear','$OR','$trainer','$odds','$jockey','$comments','$event')")or die(mysqli_error($db));

and my table looks like this:

Column      Type      Null      Default
ID      int(255)      No      
Date      varchar(250)      Yes      NULL
Track      varchar(100)      Yes      NULL

The value $place lacks a leading apostrophe

... ng','$distance','$class',$place','$distance_bt'

should be

... ng','$distance','$class','$place','$distance_bt'
