Horse Betting – Win, Place, and Show Wagers

Horse Betting - Win, Place, and Show WagersCheck WagerWeb and find the best betting site!!!!

Horse wagering is totally and completely different than that of sports betting. Bettors may wager on a given horse in a race to “win” (finish first), “place” (finish second), “show” (finish third), or they may wager “across the board” (to win, place, and show).

The odds for each horse to win, place, or show is entirely dependent on the amount of money bet into the pari-mutual pool.

The horse that finishes first will have payout odds on finishing first, second, and third. The horse that finishes second will have payout odds on finishing second, and third. The horse that finishes third will have payout odds on finishing third only.

From Sportsbook, Casino Betting, Racebook Gambling, WagerWeb offers you the best online gambling options, check it now!

Win: If you wagered on a horse to win only then that horse must finish first for the wager to be a winner. If the horse finishes first in the race then the wager will be paid off according to the Win odds.
Minimum entries for wagers to have action 2.

Place: If you wagered on a horse to place only then that horse must either finish first, or second for the wager to be a winner. If the horse finishes first or second then the wager will be paid off according to the Place odds.
Minimum entries for wagers to have action 4.

Show: If you wagered on a horse to show only then that horse must either finish first, second, or third for that wager to be a winner. If the horse finishes first, second, or third then the wager will be paid off according to the Show odds.
Minimum entries for wagers to have action 4.

Across the Board: If you wagered “across the board” on a horse and it finished first in the race, you would be paid odds for the win, place, and show bets. If the horse finished second in the race you would be paid odds on the place and show bets. If the horse finished third in the race you would be paid odds on the show bet only.

Other Straight Wagers: You can also bet win and place, win and show, and place and show bets on a horse.

Horse Betting Rules

Horse Betting RulesCheck WagerWeb and find the best betting site!!!!

WAGERWEB offers over 60 tracks for Thoroughbred & Harness racing.
We take action on Win, Place and Show wagers, also Exactas, Quinellas, Trifectas, Superfectas, Daily Doubles and Pick 3s, any and all of these If offered by the track.

  • The minimum wager for racebook wagers on the Internet and over the phone is $2. The maximum amount depends on the track you are wagering on.
  • Once bets are placed and confirmed, they may not be changed or canceled in any way.
  • The Racebook System automatically takes the races off the board when the race begins, therefore, if you have a confirmed ticket, generally you will have action on the race. This holds true for both internet and call center.
  • Post times are available upon request. For thoroughbreds and harness racing we take into account the whole minute for your bet. Example: If the race is off at 12:05, and your ticket was placed at 12:05 (and any second on that minute, up to :59), your wager will have action. If your ticket was placed at 12:06 your wager will NOT have action. For Quarter Horse wagering we will rely solely on our System’s Off Time as official time.

  • In all events that a winning horse’s name corresponds with the official record, we will pay out the wager made on the named horse. In the event that the horse’s name does not correspond with the official record, we reserve the right to hold back a payout, pending a review.
  • After management verifies the results of the race, if it is found that the wager was past-posted, your wager will then be disqualified from any winnings, and your original bet will be placed back in your account.
  • When you wager on a horse that is coupled, your wager includes all horses running under said number. If a horse is coupled with others, if you bet on any of them, you receive all horses running as part of the entry. If part of an entry is scratched and part of an entry runs, all wagers have action. There is no “must go” action as part of the entry. If one of the entry horses runs, all wagers and bet types have action.
  • For Daily Doubles and Pick 3’s we use the same rules and payouts as the track regarding consolations and ALL’s when there are early and late scratches.All normal tracks limits are still applicable.

Horse Betting Explained

Horse Betting ExplainedCheck WagerWeb and find the best betting site!!!!

Betting on horse racing isn’t a complicated procedure. Most often, you place your bet, take your ticket, and tear it up when your bet doesn’t pay off.

The following list spells out the betting procedure step by step:

  1. State the name of the racetrack.
  2. State what number race you’re betting.
  3. State the dollar unit of your bet.
  4. State the type of wager.
  5. State the number of the horse or horses you’re using.
  6. Check your ticket before you leave the window.

The main object of betting on horses is to beat the ‘Oddsmakers‘ or the ‘Odds Compilers’ and win some money. Additionally, placing a bet on your favorite event makes the race exciting and more enjoyable.

Betting is done through Sports books or Sportsbooks (US) and Bookmakers (UK) entities that accept bets. You can bet on the outcome of horse races and several sporting events.

From Sportsbook, Casino Betting, Racebook Gambling, WagerWeb offers you the best online gambling options, check it now!

If you have studied the racing form and looked at the horse, it is time to place a bet. Unlike other forms of gambling, you are not playing against the house when you bet on the horse races. Horse betting is actually a competition with the people around you.

Playing against the other horse betting gamblers as with horse racing is referred to as pari-mutuel wagering. The money that is wagered is pooled, with a separate pool being kept for each type of wager. If you win your bet you get part of the pool. How much depends on how many other people win with you.

There is a basic protocol to follow when you go to the betting window to place a bet. Here is what to say at the betting window:

Track: Tell the clerk what track you are betting on. “Hollywood Park, race 3.”

Amount: Tell the clerk the amount that you are betting. “Five dollars.”

Type: Tell the clerk the type of bet you are making. “Win.”

Number: Tell the clerk the number(s) of the horse you are betting. “Number 5.”

Now put it all together. “Hollywood Park, race 3, five dollars to win on number 5.” That’s all there is to it!

You can bet on any race being run at the track at any time before it is run. Tracks also simulcast races from other tracks. That is why it is important to specify the track where you wish to place your bet. Below is a list of the more common types of bets used in horse racing and sport events.

Straight bet or Single or Win bet. This is the simplest and most common bet. You bet on a winner at given odds. You collect only if your chosen horse is the first across the finish line.

Place. A wager for place means you collect if your selected horse finishes either first or second.

Show. The third horse across the finish line. A wager to show means you collect if your selected horse finishes either first, second or third.

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

Pick 3. This wager requires the player to pick the winners of three consecutive races. Some race tracks have a rolling pick 3 which is when the player must pick three races in a row and it continues for the next three races.

Pick 6. This wager requires the player to select the winner of six consecutive races prior to the first race of the pick six. Some tracks place the pick six as the first six races, the middle six races, or the last six races. Many tracks have carry over pools for the pick six that can grow to as high as a million dollars.

Quiniela or Reverse Forecast (UK). A bet placed on two horses to finish first and second in either order.

Perfecta or Exacta or Straight Forecast (UK). A bet placed on two horses but they must cross the finish line in exact chosen order.

Trifecta or Tricast or Treble Forecast (UK). A bet placed on three horses to cross the finish line in exact chosen order.

Superfecta. A bet placed on four horses to cross the finish line in exact chosen order.

Daily Double. Similar to an accumulator you select the winners of the first and second races on that day. You must place your bet before the start of the first race.

Jackpot. Pick six winners in six races to share in a Jackpot prize. The rules and prizes will vary from race track to race track.

Parlay or Accumulator. A multiple bet. A kind of ‘let-it-ride’ bet. Making simultaneous selections on two or more races with the intent of pressing the winnings of the first win on the bet of the following race selected, and so on.

Future. A bet on a future event.

Exotic Bets. Betting on unusual events. Some sports books post odds and take bets on a wide variety of other sports related events and activities. A few others will take bets on just about anything you can think of.

Proposition Bet or Prop Bet. An offer of bets at odds and conditions chosen by the sportsbook, usually on ‘Exotic’ bets.
