Wagering In Relation To Minimum Bets Allowed In Horse Racing

 As a new punter, your main concern is how much each bet will cost before you forward the ticket. Depending on each type of bet, you need to know the cost and this will also help you to manage your bankroll as well as calculating the odds and outs for each given race. In this guide, we will look at various types of bets giving examples of betting and variation.

For straight bets – Win, Place or Show, the minimum wage allowed is $2. Thus, the dividend is based on the $2 wager. For example, if you have placed a straight bet with a total wager of $20 and the Win price is $8.50 this means you would collect $85 ($20 multiplied by $8.5 Win divided by $2 minimum.

Hint: Wagering on favorites has a Win Bet has an average of 30% to win, an average of 45% to win or place and an average of 60% to win, place or show.

Another common type of bet is the Daily Double bet at which you get to select any two horses that will finish in any order 1st or 2nd in the first race and second race. You need to place your bet before the start of the first race.

For Quiniela Bets, you get to select any two horses that finish first or second in any order in any given race. The minimum bet for Quiniela is $2. For example, you place a Quiniela Box of 5, 6 and 4. Therefore, you are making three separate bets and the combinations would be the outcome of the horses finishing 4-6, 4-5, 6-4, 5-4, 6-5, or 5-6 thus your minimum bet becomes $6 for Quiniela box bets.

For Quiniela double, it is a bet of two winning Quiniela bets in the last two races. In order to win, all Quiniela bets of the last two races should be a win.

Now, with the Quiniela Wheel, you select any of your favorite horse to win with all other horses. For example, you select a wheel of 4 with a combination of 6 other horses your minimum bet would be $12.

The Betting variations according to the minimum bet become different and more expensive when placing the Perfacta and Trifecta bets.

The minimum bet allowed for Trifecta bets is $1. For example, a $1 Trifecta of  3-5-2 would cost you a total of $6 because the combinations would be finish 2-5-3, 2-3-5, 3-5-2, 3-2-5, 5-3-2 or 5-2-3; for a win.

A straight Trifecta would cost $2 with a bet of any three horses such as 7-4-5 and should finish in the exact order.

Now looking at Perfecta bets, the minimum bet increases depending on the number of horses placed and an addition of a horse increases the minimum bet by a significant margin. For example, A Perfecta box of 5 horses with minimum bet of $2 would cost $40 due to the fact that it consists of 20 bets and a Perfecta box of 6 horses would cost $60 as it consists of 30 bets.

Bettors should be advised that the types of bets and rules differ from one country to another and you would have to ask the bookmaker or sportsbook if not sure when you consider placing any bets.

If you are passionate about horse betting you certainly need to know the various types of bets available
to help you get started. Horse betting is a difficult spot but with great knowledge you are able to attain
a good return on your investment. Just like any other form of betting, you certainly need to practice as
well as trying out each bet so as to select a betting option of preference.

Another vital aspect you need to consider when selecting betting option is its relation to your bankroll
as well as its possibility of a favorable outcome. In this guide, I will outline various types of Horse bets available.

The first simplest horse bets to learn are the Straight bets which include Win Bet, Place Bet, Show Bet
and The Swinger Bet at which you get to select any one horse in the race with the exception of the
Swinger Bet.

With the Win Bet, you simply select any horse you consider to be the winner.

Example: Calling The Bet - Race 1: $10 win on No.8. Please note: If the horse wins, you get a payout
dividend according to the total amount wagered. Thus, if the results come out as Tab Win: $14.36 and
No.8 is the winner, this means that if the minimum bet allowed is pegged at $1, you will get to receive
$14.36 for every $1 wagered. In this case, your total dividend payout is $143.60

With the Place Bet, you select any horse that you think will either come out 1st, or 2nd in a race. Please note: there is no place betting in a horse race with max 6 runners or less. The Place Bet is another way at which you can reduce your risk when playing the Win Bet. This means you can play both the win bet and the place bet. If it wins, you win both sides and if the Win bet does not come through but The Place Bet is a win, you can win a dividend that can cover your Win Bet. Calling the bet: $10 Place on No6. With the Show Bet, you get to select any horse that you think will come out top 3. Calling the bet: $10
Show on No6.

*Please Note: some Totes will include both the Place bet and The Show Bet as Place bets and dividend is paid out according to the order of outcome.

Another common bet is the Swinger Bet. With the swinger bet also known as the pair bet, you get to
select any two horses that you think will win the race in any predetermined order - 1st and 2nd; 2nd and 1st; 2nd and 3rd or 3rd and 2nd; 1st and 3rd or 3rd and 1st. Calling the bet: Swinger 7/11

Now, we will look at the various types of bets commonly known as Exotic Bets because the betting
is done in an order at which the horse will finish the race. The commonly known exotic bets include:
Exacta Bet, Trifecta Bet, Quartet Bet, and The Quinella Bet

Exacta Bet: You get to select any two horses that you think will win in the exact order – 1st and 2nd.
However, if you are uncertain which of the two horses will come out first or second you can simply take the Exacta Box Bet at which the horses selected can finish in any order e.g. 12 and 7 and 7 and 12.

Calling the bet: Exacta 12/7 or Exacta Box 12/7
Trifecta Bet: You get to select any three horses in a race that you think will finish in the exact order. The Trifecta bet is very difficult when compared to the Win, Place, Show and Swingers bets but their dividend can be very high. The Trifecta Bet has several bet ways which include Straight line, Box, Single Floating Banker, and Single Banker Fixed Position.
Quartet Bet: The Quartet bet is similar to the trifecta bet but the only difference is that you get to select any four horses that you fancy will finish in the exact order: 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th. This type of bet is more complex and very expensive and the dividend is very high at times thousands of dollars. It also has similar bet ways to as the Trifecta bet - Straight line, Box, Single Floating Banker, and Single Banker Fixed Position.

Quinella Bet: You select any horse that you think will finish first or second irrespective of the order.

As a new punter, exotic bets can be very expensive but you should not shun away from these types of
bets as you can place fractional bets at which for each dividend paid you get to receive a fraction of
the dividend. Always try out each bet so as to select a bet that is effective and compatible with your

Indy, Ferdinand,Cigar, Alysheba, Personal Ensign, Curlin and Sunday Silence. Also, the Turf is dominated with European horses with Ouija Board having won two titles in three years. Therefore, you need to look at the US horses as well as European horses to maximize your profit.

Include the favorites

It’s pretty obvious that the favorites will always come out 50% of the time and it can be an easy way to build your bankroll if you are to follow the trend. Unlike other events, favorites in a main event have a chance of a win, place or show.
Everyone is eying for the favorites and many bookies are offering insurance or cash back if the favorites do not win. So why not take this chance as it will not knock on your door twice. For new punters, bookies are offering free bets of up to $200 for the main event and all you have to do is register a new account and start betting free.
Bet according to the odds
Try placing your bets according to the odds rather than placing bets according to sounding names or guess work. It’s all about minimizing your risk loss and certainly wagering on horses that have better odds are likely to increase your return on investment. Also include horses with marginal / average odds and this can easily be done when playing various types of bets such as Boxes, Trifecta, Quartet, etc.
Spread Your Bets on any given race of preference
Betting on all races can easily deplete your bankroll or you will not be able to yield a good dividend on your return. Bear in mind that each race of the Breeders Cup has a prize pool of at least $1 million so definitely there is a guarantee that each race will have good payouts. Therefore, you can simply spot any one race of interest. Once done, you then have to play as many bets as you can for that particular race.

Breeders Cup Odds

Now that the post positions for the $5M Breeders’ Cup Classic have been
drawn, the strategizing now begins! What do these starting positions mean
for the favorites and the longshots? Uncle Mo, the race’s first choice, will
have to contend with outside post 12 of 13 – but his speed will serve him
well going into the first turn. Uncle Mo will also be looking to become the
first horse in Breeders’ Cup history to win a Breeders’ Cup race the year after
winning the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile.

Havre de Grace, who is attempting to become the second female horse to
win the Breeders’ Cup Classic, will be contending with post 10. Not known
as a particularly quick starter, Havre de Grace will depend on jockey Ramon
Dominguez to steer clear of traffic troubles early on. Expected pacesetter
Game On Dude will break from post 8, which suits his frontrunning style. And
breaking from extreme inside post 1 is longshot Prayer for Relief, whose odds
of winning do not improve with that unlucky draw. Bet on the Breeders’ Cup.
