In Horse Racing, bettors have many wagering options. The first bet type is Win, Place or Show. Win bets require your horse to finish 1st. Place bets require your horse to finish 1st or 2nd. Show bets require your horse finish somewhere in the top 3. Another bet type is Quinella and requires you to pick the top 2 horses, who finish in either order. Exactas and Trifectas are a little more tricky to win but can have a higher payout if you can predict the 1st & 2nd place horses in that order (Exacta) or the 1st, 2nd & 3rd place finishers, in that order (trifecta). A Superfecta bet takes it one step further and requires you to select the top 4 horses in the correct order of finish. The final betting option is to predict the winning horse in consecutive races and can pick from 2 to 6 races.


Many say horse racing’s Triple Crown is the toughest feat in all of sports. When you think about it, winning three races at three different tracks at three different distances in five weeks seems to be truly impossible. The first race is the Kentucky Derby, and is probably the most popular horse race in the U.S. The race takes place at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky and is a 1 1/4 mile long. The Preakness Stakes follows the Kentucky Derby and takes place at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland. The Preakness Stakes is the shortest of the 3 races at 1 and 3/16 miles long. The Belmont Stakes is the 3rd and final leg of the Triple Crown. The race is held at Belmont Park in Elmont, New York and covers 1 and 1/2 miles.
