Other Types of Bets
Some practical examples of betting and variations
Straight bet or Single or Win bet:
This is the simplest and most common bet. You bet
on a winner at given odds. You collect only if your
chosen horse is the first across the finish line.
Place: A wager for place means
you collect if your selected horse finishes either
first or second.
Show: The third horse across the
finish line. A wager to show means you collect if
your selected horse finishes either first, second
Combination Bet: Combinations
cover from two to four horses to win in chosen order.
Pick 3: This wager requires the
player to pick the winners of three consecutive
races. Some race tracks have a rolling pick 3 which
is when the player must pick three races in a row
and it continues for the next three races.
Pick 6: This wager requires the
player to select the winner of six consecutive races
prior to the first race of the pick six. Some tracks
place the pick six as the first six races, the middle
six races, or the last six races. Many tracks have
carry over pools for the pick six that can grow
to as high as a million dollars.
The Daily Double: You win if you
pick the winner of the first and second race. To
bet you say "$2 daily double on 3 (your pick
to win in the first race) and 5 (your pick to win
in the second race)". Your bet must be placed
before the start of the first race.
Quiniela: (Reverse Forecast, UK)
You win if you pick two horses that finish first
and second, in either order, in any single race.
To bet you say "$2 quiniela, numbers 5 and
6". If the results of the first two horses
are either 5-6 or 6-5, you win.
Quiniela Box: Pick three or more
horses. You win if any two of your selections finish
first and second. To bet you say "$2 quiniela
box on 4, 5 and 6". You are making three separate
bets so your minimum bet is $6. If they finish 4-5,
4-6, 6-4, 6-5, 5-4 or 5-6 you win. You can box as
few as three or as many as the field.
Quiniela Double: Quiniela Double
is a combination bet of two winning quinielas in
the last two races. Select two horses to win and
place, in either order, in each of the last two
races. You must win both quinielas to win your Quiniela
Quiniela Wheel: You can also 'wheel'
a favorite horse, so that it is combined with all
the other horses. Based on the $2 value, the total
cost of a wheel with say, 6 other horses is $12.
For example; if you wheel #2 with 6 other horses
in the same race and #2 comes in first or second,
you win because you have all the 6 combinations
Perfecta or Exacta: (Straight
Forecast, UK) The Perfecta is similar to the Quiniela,
except the two horses must finish in the exact order.
To bet you say "$3 Perfecta, 5-6". Only
if the horses finish 5-6 you win.
Perfecta Box: As with the quiniela
box, except the two horses must finish in the exact
order. To bet you say "$2 perfecta box on 4,5
and 6". You are making six separate bets so
your minimum bet is $12. If they finish 4-5, 4-6,
6-4, 6-5, 5-4 or 5-6 you win. With Perfecta Box,
for each extra horse you add to the box the possible
combinations get compunded and your number of bets
increases accordingly. A "$2 perfecta box on
4 horses" will cost you $24 (12 bets), a "$2
perfecta box on 5 horses" $40 (20 bets), and
a "$2 perfecta box on 6 horses " $60 (30
Straight Trifecta: (Tricast or
Treble Forecast, UK) Pick the first three horses
to cross the finish line in exact order. To bet
you say "$2 trifecta numbers 7,4 and 5".
Only if they finish 7-4-5 you win.
$1 Trifecta Box: Pick three horses
to finish first, second and third, in any order.
To bet you say "$1 trifecta box 2,3 and 5".
You are actually making six $1 bets, so your total
bet is $6. If they finish 2-3-5, 2-5-3, 3-2-5, 3-5-2,
5-2-3 or 5-3-2; you win.
$1 Trifecta Key: Pick your favorite
horse to win, then two or more others to place and
show in any order. To bet you say "$1 trifecta
key on 1 with 2 and 3". You are actually making
two $1 bets so your total bet is $2. To win your
Key horse must win and the other two must finish
either 1-2-3 or 1-3-2.
Superfecta: The straight superfecta
is played by picking the first four horses to finish
in exact order. To bet you say "$2 straight
superfecta 1-3-2-8". You would collect if the
race finishes exactly 1-3-2-8.
You can Box, Key or Wheel most of the above bets.
Note: Different countries and
different race tracks may have different rules,
use different terms for how to bet and also for
the types of bets. If unsure, ask the sportsbook
or bookmaker when placing a bet.
