How to Place Multi-Race Bets

Win Ticket 1974Once you have become successful predicting the outcome of single races, you can try your luck at wagering on multiple races at once.

Daily Double

Also known as “the double,” this is the simplest multi-race wager to to start with. With this wager, you’re trying to predict the outcome of two races back to back. These special wagers are usually only offered for the first two races and the final two races on the card, though some racetracks offer them in the middle of the card as well. If there is a double available, there will be a note of availability on the tote board.

Pick 3/4/6

This is similar to the Daily Double, but with corresponding race numbers. These are the most difficult wagers to place, but the payouts often reach the low- to mid six- figure range. When playing the Pick 3 and Pick 4, if no one successfully picks the winners of the races, the racetracks will often pay out to those who only missed one race.
