Quinella Wheel Betting

TwitterFacebookReddit

The Quinella Wheel bet is picking sets of horses to finish in the first two positions. This bet improves your chances of winning because 1 or more horses can be chosen to finish in each position.

Difference between Quinella Wheel and Quinella Box Bets?
Quinella Wheel betting is cheaper than Quinella Box betting. Bettors can select one horse to win in their first key and various others for their second key. They buy less combinations compared to a Quinella Box.

The Quinella "Key" Concept

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

Start with the first key. Select 1 or more horses. For example, suppose horses 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6 are racing. We will Wheel Horse 4-All. This means Horse 4 with all other horses.

Example 1st Key: Horse 4

That means Horse 4 must finish first or second. You can only win if horse 4 finishes first or second.

Example 2nd Key is: Horses 1, 2, 3, 5, 6

That means horses 1, 2, 3, 5 or 6 must finish first or second. You can only win if horses 1, 2, 3, 5, or 6 finishes first or second.

Example Winning combinations. Key 1 Horse 4 . Key 2 Horses 1, 2, 3, 5, 6
Finishing Order Result
4,1 or 1,4 Win
4,2 or 2,4 Win
4,3 or 3,4 Win
4,5 or 5,4 Win
4,6 or 6,4 Win
Example Losing combinations. Key 1 Horse 4. Key 2 Horses 1, 2, 3, 5, 6
Finishing Order Result Why?
2,3 or 3,2 Lose Horses 2 & 3 not in first key.
5,3 or 3,5 Lose Horses 3 & 5 not in first key.
1,6 or 1,6 Lose Horses 6 & 1 not in first key.

Quinella Wheel Bets Cost $2 Per Combination

Consider the following examples. We’ve put horses into the first and second keys. Quinella Wheel cost is number of combinations times $2.

Quinella Wheel Cost Calculation: ( (Number of first key horses) x (Number of second key horses) – (Number of horses in both keys x 2) ) x (Cost per combination)

Example 1: Quinella Part Wheel

You believe 8 will be first or second. Any of 2, 7 or 16 will join 8 as first or second.

Horse 8 is your first key.
Horses 2, 7, & 16 are your second key.
((1 horses x 3 horses) – (0 horses in both keys x 2)) x $2 cost = $6

4 Horse Quinella Part Wheel Combinations. 1 horse first key. 3 horse second key.
Finishing Order Cost Each
8,2 or 2,8 $2
8,7 or 7,8 $2
8,16 or 16,8 $2
Total Cost $6

Example 2: Quinella Full Wheel, multiple horse keys

8 horse race. You key horses 2,3 – All. "All" means all remaining horses in the field.

Horses 2 & 3 are your first key.
Horses 1, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 are your second key. The remaining horses in the field.
((2 horses x 6 horses) – (0 horses in both keys x 2)) x $2 cost = $24

8 Horse Quinella Full Wheel Combinations. 2 unique horse first key. 6 unique horse second key.
Finishing Order Cost Each
2,1 or 1,2 $2

Quinella Wheel Cost Calculation: ( (Number of first key horses) x (Number of second key horses) – (Number of horses in both keys x 2) ) x (Cost per combination)
