Can you even bet $1? I feel like every time I get up to the window to place a 1 or 2 dollar bet, i end up spending like $8 or something.


You are boxing it or something. If you bet a $1 and just a $1, it has to come in the exact order . Otherwise you are making multiple bets in theory. Sincerely, dirtball Jim who has been betting and drinking at racetracks since he was 16

Yup. Boxing the trifecta costs 6x your bet amount. Boxing the superfecta costs 24x your bet amount. Wheeling the exacta costs (2 times (the number of horses minus one)) times your bet amount.

FTT back in the day me and my boys would chip in, bet trifecta / exacta combos on races w few horses. Our favorite was when there was one favorite and a bunch of long shots. We'd have the favorite finishing second. Always paid for our beers when it hit.

I picked Cloud Computing today because I was heading over to a friend's place who is an IT guy and it seemed like a decent coinkydink before heading out the door.

Kid B watched the race with my Ma and was over the moon when the horse came in. No one is telling him that was completely random, and that I've prolly not picked a stakes winner in 5 years.
