HOW TO BET

BET TO WIN

Your horse must finish in first place.

BET TO PLACE

Your horse can finish in first or second place.

BET TO SHOW

Your horse can finish in first, second, or third place.

TRIACTOR

Your three horses must finish 1st, 2nd, 3rd in the same race.

Sample Bet: $2.00 Triactor 5, 6, 7

This means that Horse 5 must win, Horse 6 must finish in 2nd, and Horse 7 must finish in 3rd. The total bet would still cost only $2.00


Minimum bet $1.00

SUPERFECTA

Your four horses must finish 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th in the same race.

Sample Bet: $2.00 Superfecta 5, 6, 7, 8

Horse 5 must win, Horse 6 must finish 2nd, Horse 7 must finish 3rd, and Horse 8 must finish 4th. The bet will still cost only $2.00.

Minimum bet .20 cents for a total of $1.00

BOXING

Type of wager where you can try different combinations of the horses selected in wagers such as Exactors, Triactors and Superfectas.

Sample Bets: $1 Triactor Box Numbers 1, 3, and 7

If you box your selections, as long as the horses you have picked finish 1st, 2nd, 3rd  in any order, you win.

KEYING

For all exotic wagers, you may key a single horse in any race or in a certain finishing position.

When you feel that one of your selections will finish in a certain position, either 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th, the horse you select to finish in a certain position is your “key” horse.

The other horses you have picked may then finish in any order and you are a winner.

Questions? Please ask a Mutual Teller or a Guest Services Representative.
