Exacta Wheel Betting

TwitterFacebookReddit

The Exacta Wheel bet is picking sets of horses to finish in first and second position. This bet improves your chances of winning because 1 or more horses can be chosen to finish in each position.

Difference between Exacta Wheel and Exacta Box Bets?
Exacta Wheel betting requires a specific order from 2 sets of horses. Exacta box betting requires any order of 3 or more horses.

The Exacta Key Concept

Keying means selecting a set of horses to finish in a certain position. Exactas are for first and second position. That means 2 keys must be made for each Exacta Wheel.

Start with the first position key. Select 1 or more horses. For example, suppose horses 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6 are racing.

Example 1st Key: Horses 4 & 1

That means horses 4 or 1 must finish first. You can only win if 4 or 1 finish first.

Example 2nd Key: Horses 2, 5, 6

That means horses 2, 5 or 6 must finish second. You can only win if horses 2, 5 or 6 finish second.

Example Winning combinations. Key 1 Horses 4 & 1. Key 2 Horses 2, 5 or 6

Exacta Wheel Bets Cost $2 Per Combination

Consider the following examples. We’ve keyed horses into the first and second position positions. Exacta Wheel cost is $2 multiplied by total number of combinations.

Exacta Wheel Cost Calculation: ( (Number first key horses x Number second key horses) – (Number horses found in both keys) ) x (Cost per combination)

Example 1: Exacta Part Wheel

Horses 12 and 7 are your first key.
Horses 8, 4 and 13 are your second key.
0 horses are found in both keys.

( (2 horses x 3 horses) – (0 horses in both keys)) x $2 cost = $12
