To win a Trifecta, you must select first, second and third in correct order.
A Trifecta bet is available on every race at every meeting provided there are at least four (4) or more runners.
There are a few ways to take a Trifecta bet:
For a Standard Trifecta you have to select first, second and third in the correct finishing order, nominating as many runners as you like for each placing. Providing one of your runners selected for first runs first, one of your runners selected for second runs second and one of your runners selected for third runs third then you win the Trifecta.
A Boxed Trifecta provides you with more possible combinations to win a Trifecta. By 'boxing' your selections you cover all the possible combinations involving those runners. For example, three runners boxed will cover all six possible combinations. You can box as many runners as you like.
