We highly recommend playing exacta boxes in each race. They have consistently been our best return on investment and it’s how we count our winners!

The Win Candidates in each race are in order from our top pick to our fourth (or third). However, we root for the two biggest prices to run 1st and 2nd as it helps our payoffs in our exacta boxes. It does not matter to us if it’s our top pick or fourth!

Win Candidates 1-6-5-4 Rating 3 stars

#1 Spy a Star-rallied to finish third over this track last out missing by less than three lengths. He stretches out and that should to the trick.

#6 Bertrada-took on much tougher on the turf in her debut last out that was just a tune up for today. She drops from MSW to this 30k MCL, switches to the main track and look for big improvement.

#5 Yellowstone Girl-finished 5th in her debut last out against MSW runners at IND downs. Cox is hitting at 33% and this one could be in the payoffs.

#4 Kentucky Pride-is yet another runner dropping from MSW and Leparoux stays in the irons.

  • 8 8 ML 10-1 Eastern Symphony F. Geroux 121 Lbs M. Sancal $15,000 L

Win Candidates 5-6-1-4 Rating 2 stars

#5 My Name is Phred-Missed by only 5 over this track back in July in a key race that both the winner and second place finisher came back to win in their next start. This gelding came off a two month layoff and showed speed before tiring late in a needed race. He will be fit and ready today.

#6 Big Biz-has been showing speed against similar company. Trainer Williamson has 3 seconds and a third from his 5 starters here and has the one to beat.

#1 Florida Flash-late runner stretches out for Romans and that will help his chances.

#4 Don’tshowweakness-has been showing speed against tougher, drops in class, switches to the main track and should be in the payoffs.

Win Candidates 1-2-3 Rating 3 stars

#1 Forevernoa-went wire to wire to break her maiden on the AP turf. She then switched to the main track here, broke to the lead and ran a nice race to miss by only 4 lengths at 28-1. She cuts back in distance, has speed, and the good start over the track will help.

#2 Irish Willow-stretched out last out and fought hard to miss by just a nose in a game effort. She cuts back in distance and is the one to beat.

#3 Gesture-was claimed two back for 16k by Maker and came back to finish third at this same 16k level. This 240k filly is cut out to be a runner and Maker is hitting at 29% here.

Win Candidates 1-11-8-10 Rating 2 stars

#1 In Love-shipped over from ARG, made his NA debut after a 10 month layoff and was flying late to miss by less than two lengths in a big effort. He needed that one and we should get a nice price.

#11 Caramelito-won two in a row then came off a two month layoff and missed by less than two for her third straight win. She then finished third in a tough allowance field at KY Downs last out. She is at the top of her game and should be in the payoffs.

#8 Falkirk-added blinkers and drew off to break his maiden by 2 lengths then rallied to miss by only a length last out. He is improving with each start and should be close.

#10 Juggernaut-has the speed to close from the start and could easily hang on for a piece.

Win Candidates 3-5-6-8 Rating 2 stars

#3 Beatbox-2.1 million dollar colt from the Brown barn makes his long awaited debut. He is bred to be a champ and for that price he better beat these.

#5 Inspector Frost-showed speed in his debut before finishing third. Cox is hitting at 26% with his maidens in their second start and this one should improve.

#6 Tiwanaku-is working bullets for his debut and Asmussen/Santana are starting to heat up here.

#8 War Machine-another fist timer who is working well. Tough race to figure.

Win Candidates 3-7-1-9 Rating 3 stars

#3 Sharecropper-added blinkers two starts back and has really improved his early speed. He drops in class for Cox and will be tough to catch.

#7 Motagally-650k colt from the Brown barn can be all yours for the low low price of only 50k. He is coming off a second place finish and is the one to beat.

#1 Surf and Turf-did not fire last out in his first start in 7 months. He needed that one, drops in class and will improve at a price.

#9 Vasariano-Is coming off a wire to wire score over this track last out and could be in the payoffs.

#2 Blame Debbie-added blinkers two back and has two big wins to show for it including a score over this course last out. She looks ready to make it three in a row today.

#4 Always Shopping-hmm didn’t realize my wife owned a horse..lol. This one is coming off a nice win last out in a stake at Gulfstream and should rally into the payoffs.

#3 Over Thinking-missed by just a neck two starts back at Del Mar then shipped across the country and missed by 8 in a very tough 500k stake at Kentucky Downs. She finds easier and Bejarano takes the mount.

Win Candidates 2-5-1-7 Rating 1 star

#2 Blushinstreetdevil-has finished third in both of his career starts, last out in a tough MSW field at KY Downs. He finds easier today and is the one to beat.

#5 Thrown for a Loupe-fast gelding will be calling the shots on the front end at a big price.

#1 Big in the City-made his debut in a stake race and ran well to finish 4th. He takes on maidens today and that will help his chances.

#7 Southern Passage-missed by a nose last out at Churchill and could easily rally into the payoffs again today.

Win-Place-Show Bets

Betting on horse racing can be fun and easy. There are several different wagers offered each race, but these are the three most basic:

  • The first is a “win” wager. Betting a horse to win is just as fun as it sounds – the horse must win the race in order for you to win the wager.
  • Next, is a “place” wager. This is betting on a horse to finish in the top 2. You win the wager if your horse finishes first or second.
  • Betting a horse to “show” means selecting a horse who you think will finish in the top 3. You win the wager if your horse finishes first, second, or third.

Because of the difficulty of a win wager, it will yield the highest payoff of these three wagers. A show wager will yield the lowest payoff but offers the greatest chance of winning.

The minimum bet for a win, place or show wager is only $2.

Exacta Bets

If you’ve mastered the art of win, place and show wagers, try an exacta. An exacta is more difficult than win, place and show wagers, but yields a higher payout. You bet an exacta by selecting a minimum two horses to finish first and second. These horses must finish first and second, in that order, for you to win the wager.

If picking two horses in order sounds too difficult, you can “box” your wager. A boxed wager will win if your horses finish 1st and 2nd, in any order, making it more likely for you to win.

The minimum bet for an exacta or exacta box wager is only $2.

Trifecta Bets

If you’ve mastered the art of win, place and show wagers, try a trifecta. A trifecta is more difficult than win, place and show wagers, as well as exacta wagers, so it yields a higher payout than any of those bets.

You bet a trifecta by selecting a minimum three horses to finish first, second, and third. These horses must finish first, second, and third, in that exact order, for you to win the wager.

If picking three horses in order sounds too difficult you can “box” your wager. A boxed trifecta wager will win if your horses finish 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, in any order, making it more likely to win.

The minimum bet for a trifecta wager is only 50 cents and you can bet a trifecta box for as little as $3.

If you’re a beginning bettor you probably want to place your bets at a mutuel window with a live mutuel teller before using self-service betting machines and mobile applications. Here’s what you should do when you get to the betting window:

  1. Have your money in hand, so that once you’re at the counter, you’re ready to make your bet
  2. State the track’s name
  3. State the race number you are betting on
  4. State the amount of money you are betting
  5. Say the type of bet you are placing
  6. Finally, state the horse’s program number

It should sound something like this, “Churchill Downs, Race 11, $2 to win on #4.” After you’ve handed the teller your money, make sure you take your betting ticket and store it in a safe, or lucky, place. If your bet wins, you’ll need to return to the betting window and give the teller your ticket to collect your winnings.

Wagers have different bet minimums. You can make a wager for as little as ten cents ($0.10) playing the Superfecta or $1 for a Win bet. Although these are the minimums, many guests wager more and $5, and $10 Win bets are quite common. NYRA also has designated windows for guests wagering a minimum of $50 per wager.

  • State the NAME of the track.
  • State the RACE NUMBER.
  • State the AMOUNT of the bet.
  • State the TYPE of bet.
  • State the NUMBER of the horse.
  • Example: “Belmont, 4th race, $10 to Win on 5.”

The track handicapper sets the morning line, which are the odds he believes the horses will be at post time. As money is wagered, the odds change continuously until post time, and are determined by the amount of money wagered on each horse.

Wagering at all NYRA tracks closes when the starting gate opens. Final odds cannot be posted until the race is in progress. There is a slight delay due to the high volume of last-minute wagering at simulcast sites across the nation as final odds are calculated by the totalisator system. No wagering site has the capability to accept bets after the start of any NYRA race.

The Internal Revenue Service requires reporting of payouts on wagers or group of identical wagers that exceed odds of 300 to 1 and pay in excess of $600. IRS regulations also require automatic 24% withholding on payouts that exceed $5,000. Please note that for non-US residents, IRS regulations require automatic withholding of 30% on wagers that exceed odds of 300 to 1 and pay in excess of $600. Windows designated for IRS winning tickets are located on all floors. Patrons must present a picture ID (driver’s license or non-driver’s state ID, federal, state, or city ID, passport, or NYRA ID).
