James asks…

Can somebody help me with horse racing betting terminologies?

I get confused by these different terms such as trifecta, superfecta, exacta, etc. etc. Can somebody simplify this jargon for me?

Denny answers:

They are many, and many terminologies for bet types, and is a hard jargon to…Handicapping and incorporated bet strategy is a skill learned over get you started here’s the gist.. :)
Straight Bets
Win: The simplest bet you can make on a horse race. A Win bet is an attempt to predict the horse that will win the race. If the horse wins, you will collect on your bet. The odds listed for the horses on the toteboard are the Win odds for each horse. For example, if a horse shows ’5′ on the toteboard, if you bet him to Win for $2, you will get back $12 (5 times $2 plus your original $2 bet). This $2 payoff of $12 would also be shown on the result payoffs under the Win column (1st column) for the horse when the race is official.
~ Place: Similar to the Win bet, a Place bet on a horse is a bet that the horse will finish in first or second. If the horse does finish in one of the top two spots, you will collect the amount shown in the Place column (2nd column) for that horse on the result payoffs for each $2 you have bet. If you make a Place bet, note that it does not matter if the horse wins or comes in second, you will win the same amount. This bet has less risk than a Win bet, but also a smaller reward. If you are confident the horse will win the race, you will receive a larger return betting the horse to Win.
~ Show: Another variety of a straight bet, the Show bet is used when you want to bet that a horse will finish in the top 3 positions in the race. For every $2 bet on the horse to Show, you will collect the amount shown in the Show column (3rd column) for that horse on the results payoffs. Again, if the horse comes in first or second, you will not win any more money than if the horse finishes third. This is the safest of the straight bets but also offers the smallest return. If you are confident the horse will finish better than third, you would have a larger return placing a Win or Place bet.

Combination Straight Bets-
~ Across the Board (Win/Place/Show): This is a combination of the Win, Place, and Show wagers. If you bet a horse “across the board” you are effectively betting him to Win, Place, and Show. If the horse wins, you collect on all 3 bets. If the horse comes in 2nd, you collect the Place and Show payoffs. If the horse comes in 3rd, you collect on the Show bet only. Since this is actually 3 bets combined, a $2 bet “across the board” will cost $6.

~ Win/Place, Place/Show: These are simply 2 bet combinations of Win/Place and Place/Show, respectively. For a $2 bet, they cost $4.

Exotic Bets: Single Race
~Exacta/Perfecta/Exactor: One of the simplest single-race exotic bets, the Exacta is the combination of predicting the winning horse and the second-place horse, in order. This will pay more than betting either of the horses to win or place. A $2 bet on an Exacta will pay out the amount shown for an Exacta bet on the wager payoffs after the race is official.
~Quinella: Similar to the Exacta, but this does not require the bettor to predict the order of the top two horses. Simply put, the bettor only has to pick the horses which will finish in the top two places, but does not have to predict which of those two will actually win the race. Since this is easier to predict than an Exacta, it also pays less than the Exacta (typically it pays about half of the Exacta payoff).
~ Trifecta/Triactor: The Trifecta takes the Exacta a step further. It requires the bettor to pick the horses, in order, that finish in the top 3 positions in the race. It is significantly harder to predict than an Exacta, and accordingly will pay out much more for a winning bet. A $2 bet on a Trifecta will pay out the amount shown for the Trifecta on the wager payoffs after the race is official.

~ Superfecta: The most difficult of the single-race exotics, the Superfecta, requires the bettor to predict the first four finishers, in order. Predicting a Superfecta is very difficult and will always require the bettor to take different combinations of horses so that there are more chances of winning. The payoff for a Superfecta is generally very high, and is typically shown on the wager payoffs based on a $1 bet.

Start of simple..Good Luck/ Have Fun !
