You must select the three entries that finish first, second, and third in exact order.

$1 TRIFECTA BOX (Combination Tricast)

You must select three (or more) entries you think have the best chance of finishing first, second, and third. Because this is a multiple wager, the entries can finish in any order. If three of the entries you have boxed finish first, second, and third, you are a WINNER. The $1 USD Trifecta Box pays one-half the $2 USD Trifecta price. Total costs:

3 Entries 6 Combinations $6.00 USD
4 Entries 24 Combinations $24.00 USD
5 Entries 60 Combinations $60.00 USD
6 Entries 120 Combinations $120.00 USD

8 Entries 336 Combinations $336.00 USD

$1 TRIFECTA KEY

You must select the key entry that you think will win and then select two (or more) others that you think have the best chance of finishing second and third, in either order. The $1 USD Trifecta Key pays one-half the $2 USD Trifecta price. Total costs:

(KEY 1 ENTRY WITH)

2 others $2.00 USD 5 others $20.00 USD
3 others $6.00 USD 6 others $30.00 USD
4 others $12.00 USD 7 others $42.00 USD

Also note: You may also “Key” an entry in the second or third position. The “Key” entry must finish in the exact position specified, the others must complete the trifecta, in either position.

TWIN TRIFECTA

A twin tri is a two part bet. You bet a tri in the first half in the designated race to get exchanges for the second half, usually two races later. If you get any exchanges, the first half pays a percentage of the pool, and you bet your exchanges as trifectas in the second half. The rest of the pool gets paid in the second half, only if someone has all three parts of the trio. If no one hits the tri in the second half, the pool is carried over to the next card until somebody hits it. Many tracks have a designated day where the twin-tri is forced. Most pools are forced in the evening card. Then, if no one has all three parts of the tri, it either pays closest to, or the pool is divided between the exchanges.

Examples: If you bet in the first race a $2 TT 1/2/3 and the race runs 1/2/3 , you have 2 exchanges. If the pool is forced, and your exchanges are 1/2/3 and 1/3/4 , at a track that pays closest to, if the race runs 1/2/5 and no one has 1/2/5 , the race will pay 1/2/all. If the track pays equally between exchanges, it pays all/all/all.

Tri-Supers are the same in all aspects except the exchanges are superfectas.

In sum: Twin-Trifectas are two part bets where you bet a tri in the first half to get exchanges and a tri in the second half to hit the pool. Tri supers are where you bet a super in the second half.

Please note that Twin Tri and Tri Super wagers are only available for Telephone Voice Wagering.

SUPERFECTA

You must select the four entries that finish first, second, third, and fourth in exact order.

$1 SUPERFECTA BOX

4 Entries 24 Combinations $24.00 USD
5 Entries 120 Combinations $120.00 USD
6 Entries 360 Combinations $360.00 USD
7 Entries 840 Combinations $840.00 USD
8 Entries 1680 Combinations $1680.00 USD

$1 SUPERFECTA KEY

You must select the “Key” entry you think will win, and then select three (or more) others that you think have the best chance of rounding out the Superfecta. The $1 USD Superfecta Key pays one-half the $2 USD Superfecta price. Total costs:

Key 1 Entry with 3 others $6.00 USD
Key 1 Entry with 4 others $24.00 USD
Key 1 Entry with 5 others $60.00 USD
