Do you consider yourself a novice in horse betting; yet always wanted to find out all about betting? Well, not to worry, because, in this article you will find out what is win, place, and show bet. What are the rules? What is a daily double, or a daily triple; how do you play pick six, or exacta, or quinella.
The minimum bet you can place is normally 2.00 € (or $) on win, place, and show bets, and 1.00 € (or $) on all other bets. The betting amount can be higher than the minimum, but should be an even amount (even number).
Win: the most basic form of horse betting that the selected horse will win, that is, finish in first position.
Place: a bet over the selected horse finishing first or second.
Show: a bet that the selected horse will finish first, second, or third.
Daily double: a bet over the first position of two consecutive races (generally the first two of the day). To win this bet, the better must correctly select the winners of two consecutive races.
Daily triple / Pick three: a risky bet over the first position of three consecutive races.
Pick six: like the one above, and as the name suggests, it is a very risky bet over the first position of 6 consecutive races (often the last six of the day). If nobody wins, the winning pool is divided among those correctly picking five, or less (if nobody picked five) and a carryover to the next pick six pool.
Exacta: a bet over the first and second position (in the correct order).
Quinella: a bet over the horses finishing first and second in a particular race in any order.
Trifecta: a bet over the first, second and third position in a particular race (in the exact order).
Superfecta: a bet over the first, second, third and fourth position in a particular race (in the exact order).
Odd/even: an untraditional bet on forecasting the number of the winner horse.
