Tips on how to bet

Excited to head along to the races but not sure how to have a bet? Get that blank look like most of us when someone mentions a “quinella”? Well we’re here to help…hopefully.

It’s actually quite easy to bet once you get the gist! You can make different bets; it doesn’t just have to be which horse will win! Here are some of the different bets you can make…

Win Bet: This is the simplest bet. You bet on a horse and if it comes first across the line you win!

Each Way: You bet that your horse will either win or place 1st, 2nd or 3rd. If your horse wins you get both the Win and the Place winnings! If your horse finishes 2nd or 3rd you collect the Place winnings.

Place: You are betting for your horse to finish 1st, 2nd or 3rd.

Combination Bet: Combinations cover from two to four horses to win in chosen order.

Quiniela: You bet on two horses to finish first or second in either order.

Trifecta: You bet on three horses to cross the finish line in exact chosen order.
