Bet a horse to WIN.
Bet a horse to finish in the placings. The number of horses qualifying for PLACE payouts depends on the number of runners
|5 or less:||No place betting|
|6 to 7:||First, second|
|8 to 15:||First, second, third|
|16 or more:||First, second, third, fourth|
Combines a Win and Place bet. You collect the Win and Place payouts if the horse bet on finishes FIRST. You get the Place payout if the horse finishes SECOND or THIRD (the number of PLACE payouts varies according to the number of runners, see above). The same amount is always bet for the Win and the Place.
This is your chance to win big for a small amount. The bet enables Win or Place bets on horses in different races at the SAME race meeting to be combined into one accumulative bet.
A great bet! Pick 2 horses in a race and couple them in a Swinger. You win if the 2 horses chosen fill 2 of the first 3 places. There are 3 winning combinations 1st & 2nd (or 2nd & 1st); 1st& 3rd (or 3rd & 1st); 2nd & 3rd (or 3rd & 2nd). No payout 3rd & 3rd if dead heat for THIRD.
Bet on the horses to finish FIRST and SECOND in the exact order. Bet 3 different ways:
|Single:||Choose 1 horse for FIRST and 1 horse for SECOND.|
|Perm:||Choose any number of horses for FIRST and for SECOND.|
|Box:||Choose 2 or more horses. You collect if the horses chosen include the FIRST and SECOND finishers.|
