Trifecta Box Betting

TwitterFacebookReddit

A Trifecta Box bet is picking the top 3 horses finishing in ANY order. This bet improves your chances of winning because you can choose more than 3 horses and order doesn’t matter.

There’s a catch. Trifecta Box bets cost more than a straight Trifecta. Each possible winning combination costs $1.

The following video explains how to place this bet. The steps are the same for Exacta, Trifecta and Superfecta. Rewind the video to review each straight bet.

Trifecta Box Cost Calculation: (Number of horses) x (Number of horses – 1) x (Number of horses – 2) x (Cost per combination)

A 3 horse Trifecta Box means there are 6 possible finishing combinations. Your bet will cost $6, $1 per combination.
3 horse cost = (3 horses) x (3 horses – 1) x (3 horses – 2) x $1 = $6
4 horse cost = (4 horses) x (3) x (2) x $1 = $24
5 horse cost = (5 horses) x (4) x (3) x $1 = $60

Example: $1 Trifecta Box Bet

Trifecta Betting Procedure

  1. Select the "Trifecta Bet" from your racebook’s wagering menu.
  2. Note the horses in the race, listed on the left. The next "ML" column lists the odds.
  3. Select 3 or more horses to finish first, second, and third. Remember, final order does not matter. In this diagram, the first horse has 2:1 odds. The second horse has 10:1 odds. The third horse has 12:1 odds.
  4. You must click the blue "Box" button. This indicates the bet is a Trifecta Box and not a straight Trifecta.
  5. ***Notes: 3 or more horses must finish first, second and third.
    For example you bet horses James, Ted and Larry. Suppose the race finishes Ted, James and Larry. The bet would win. If the race finishes Larry, James and Ted the bet also wins. But if horse Bill ends up first, second or third the bet would lose. You did not choose Bill in your box.
