WageringHow to Wager
- WIN – Your horse finishes first.
- PLACE – Your horse finishes first or second.
- SHOW – Your horse finishes first, second or third.
- ACROSS THE BOARD – Three equal best to win, place and show on a single horse.
- QUICK PICKS – For those who enjoy real chance, a bet will be randomly selected for you.
- EXACTOR – Pick the exact order of the first two horses to cross the finish line.
- TRIACTOR – Pick the exact order of the first three horses to cross the finish line.
- SUPERFECTA – Pick the exact order of the first four horses to cross the finish line.
- DAILY DOUBLE – Pick the winning horses in two consecutive races.
- PICK 3, PICK 4, PICK 5 – Try to pick the winning horse in 3, 4 or 5 consecutive races.
- BOXING FEATURE BETS – By boxing a bet you are essentially giving yourself every possible horse combination in a feature race. For instance, in an Exactor race, if you “box” horse #1 and horse #2, you will have a ticket with two bets – 1 & 2 and 2 & 1.
- JACKPOT HI-5 – Select the top 5 finishers in a race in the correct order, with one twist: there is a full pool plus a jackpot carryover that will pay out if and when only one (1) single winning ticket exists. If there are multiple winning tickets, 50% of the pool will be paid as consolation and the remainder will be added into the carryover pool.
- 20¢ EXOTICS – See a host for details.
Odds are determined by how much money is bet on each horse to WIN. The more money wagered on a horse, the more people share in the “pool”, the less the horse will pay. If a horse listed at 10 – 1 on a $2 bet, you would receive approximately $22 should that horse win.
