How To Bet

1) PICK YOUR HORSE

What Horse catches your attention?…  Some pick a horse because of its name, or by the horse color, or the jockey silks colors;or by the jockey wearing the colorful silks. Many base their selection on the horse’s racing history; that information is provided in the racing program. 

2) BET TYPES

Get started with a simple bet… If you bet a horse to WIN the horse must finish first for you to collect. If you bet a horse to PLACE, the horse must finish first or second. And if you bet to SHOW, your horse must finish first, second or third for you to win your bet. Once you get the hang of it, you might try other bets: exacta, trifecta, pick 3 and many more. The racing program has helpful information.

3) PLACE YOUR BET

Just a little cash and a little help…It is wise to have a friend join you for your first bet, or simply inform the mutuel teller/clerk that you are a newbie; they are trained to help beginners. But the basics of placing a bet are simple, just say how much you want to bet, the type of bet and the number of the horse you want to bet
