How do I place a Trifecta?
What is 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 in the race.
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.
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 in any order. For example, three runners boxed will cover all six possible combinations. You can box as many runners as you like.
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 at least two (2) non-banker runner selections to finish second and third. Your Banker selection(s) must win the race and your non-banker selections must finish second and third to win the Trifecta.
If you have a 'sure place-getter', you can take it as a 'Rover' with two or more non-rover runner selections. To win a Roving Banker Trifecta: Your Rover selection(s) must place either 1st, 2nd or 3rd and your non-rover selections must fill the remaining 2 placings.
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.
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.
