Cashing a Trifecta ticket involves getting the top three finishers in a race in exact order, a tall task, but one that can reap great dividends for a good (or sometimes lucky) horseplayer.
A common way to play the trifecta is to box three horses, which for a $1 bet would be a $6 investment. There are now some tracks that are offering .50 cent Trifecta betting. The .50 cent increment will be available for the first time at the 2010 Breeders’ Cup at Churchill Downs.

A Quinella is similar to an Exacta, except for the fact that is does not matter what order your two horses come in, the payoff will be the same.
That differs from an Exacta box. If you like two horses and play an Exacta box and your first choice is a longshot and your other choice is a favorite, in most cases you will be rewarded more if your longshot wins the race.

An Exacta wager is putting together the top two finishers of a race in the exact order. It is tougher than traditional Win, Place, and Show wagering, but obviously not as difficult as attempting to hit a Trifecta or Superfecta.
There are many ways to place exacta wagers, probably the most common a two horse Exacta Box.
A $2 Exacta Box with the 1 and 2 horse would cost a horseplayer $4. If the race comes in either 1-2 or 2-1, the horseplayer wins. Any other combination, and the ticket is worthless.

While horse racing is considered a “fringe” sport among mainstream sports fans for much of the year, the main exception to that is during the Triple Crown,
Each spring the top three-year-olds in training go through a grueling three-race series, starting with the two most exciting minutes in sports, the Kentucky Derby at historic Churchill Downs in Louisville, Ky.
