Exotic Bets

With exotic bets, we kick it up a notch from your basic “win, place, show” bets. These bets have a bigger risk factor, because you are counting on more horses to perform the way you want them to. However, your payoff is higher because of that risk. Here, you can bet $1 because your minimum bet will still cost $2. You can figure out the cost of your wager by looking at the number of first place combinations.

WHILE IT SEEMS COMPLICATED, IT’S AS EASY AS….1, 2, 3!
