What is a Trifecta?

This bet requires you to select the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishers in order.

Example If you have a $1.00 trifecta on the numbers 1 to win, 2 to come second and 3 to run third

Then they would have to finish in the order 1-2-3 for you to win.

Trifecta’s can be also be done as Boxed and flexi bets

With a Box Trifecta You may select a number of horse’s to run 1st 2nd or 3rd

in any order with a minimum of 3.

The more selections you have, the higher the cost of your box Trifecta will be.

But there will be a higher chance of success.

A flexi bet Trifecta allows you to still specify the number of runners you wish to back

But you can also specify what amount you would like to invest based upon your budget.

The payout you receive will be a % of the winning dividend

Based upon the difference of the normal cost of a boxed Trifecta and the amount you chose to invest.
