How do I place a Trifecta?

To win a Trifecta, you must select the first, second and third runners in correct order.

A Trifecta bet is available on every race at every meeting provided there are at least three (3) or more runners.

There are a few ways to take a Trifecta bet:

STANDARD / STRAIGHT

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.

BOX

A Box 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.

BANKER

If you feel there is a 'sure thing' to win a race, then a Banker Trifecta might be for you. You could make your 'sure thing' a Banker and couple it with two (2) or more runners to finish second and third. Your Banker has to win the race and your selections for second and third must finish second and third to win the Trifecta.

ROVING BANKER

If you have a 'sure place-getter', you can take it as a Roving Banker Trifecta with two or more other runners. Providing your Roving Banker selection runs a place and your 'other' selections fill the other placings then you win the Trifecta.

Likewise, if you have two (2) 'sure place-getters', you can take those two as a Double Roving Trifecta with one or more other runners. Providing your two (2) Double Roving selections run two of the placings and one of your other selections fills the remaining placing, you win the Trifecta.

MULTIPLE

A Multiple Trifecta allows you to take as many runners as you like for each placing. For example, you can take three (3) runners for first, five (5) runners for second and twelve (12) runners for third. 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.
