Definition: Betting all possible combinations in a multi-horse wager such as exacta or trifecta. Boxing costs more but will cover the horses finishing in any order.

Examples: I would like a boxed exacta of 1 and 4.

Definition: A person who bets an unusually large sum on a single horse, like $100,000 to show. Refers to the fact that if they lose they may be jumping off the nearest bridge. You can make this work in your favor if you think the horse that has been bridge jumped will finish out of the money since that will result in huge pay-offs on the other horses.


Definition: Type of wager calling for the selection of winners of two consecutive races, usually the first and second or the last two races.

Examples: I would like a $2 daily double with 6 and 10.
