What is a Superfecta Part Wheel?

Superfecta Part Wheel: Select horses to key into each position: first, second, third and fourth. Final order does matter.

A key corresponds to a finishing position. Select one or more horses for each key. You may use the same horse in multiple keys. Your bet wins if one horse from each key matches the final finishing order.

For example, Justify from the first key finishes 1st. Bravazo from the second key finishes 2nd; Tenfold from the third key finishes 3rd, etc.

Notice the smaller Belmont Stakes field. While you’re allowed to put more than 3 horses in each key, I wouldn’t recommend it! Keep each key to 3 or less horses. That’s much more efficient.

Efficiency Matters

Superfecta Part Wheels are harder to win because you must select and key horses correctly.

However a part wheel is more efficient than a box. You will invest less bankroll to potentially win more money.

Suppose We Box our 7 Horses?

A 7 horse Superfecta box costs $840!

That’s a big risk compared to our $26 part wheel. Boxes are more flexible: order doesn’t matter, any of the 7 must finish in the top 4. But if it fails, you’re out a couple car payments!

The $26 7 horse part wheel is much more manageable. It’s not as clumsy as its rickety box cousin. 🙂

Belmont Stakes 2018 Superfecta Betting Advice

I recommend a 7 horse Superfecta Part Wheel, keying 2 horses in the first position, then 3 varying horses in the second, third and fourth positions. Here’s why:

A 4 horse Superfecta Part Wheel using my recommendation is only $26, $1 per combination. With only 10 or so horses scheduled to run, it’s a cheap date in Elmont, New York this weekend.

Remember, the Belmont Stakes is 1.5 miles (12 furlongs), the longest Triple Crown race. Horses can’t start too fast and must have incredible endurance.

Put Justify and Bravazo in the first key. Then enter other likely top finishers in the remaining three keys. Invest your Superfecta money wisely or bust.

You’ll have 26 possible winning combinations. That beats the novice who bets it all on one horse. Best of all, your return will be much better!

Preakness Superfecta Picks Keys

Let’s assemble our Superfecta Part Wheel keys from the table above.

Key 1

As of writing, Justify is the odds-on favorite. He’s currently -125 or 4/5. That means you win $80 if you bet $100 on Justify straight up. Don’t. It doesn’t make horse sense 🙂 (Couldn’t resist!)

Enter him in the 1st key.

Now let’s pick another horse for the first key.

Bravazo was 2nd at the Preakness and 6th at the Kentucky Derby. Before that he was 8th at the G2 Lousiana Derby to Noble Indy on March 24, 2018. His last win was the G2 Risen Star Stakes at Fair Grounds on February 17, 2018.

Key 2

Add both Justify and Bravazo to the 2nd key. Next, we’ll add a third horse to our 2nd key.

Tenfold was 3rd at the Preakness. Previously he finished 5th at Oaklawn Park’s G1 Arkansas Derby on April 14, 2018. Additionally, he won a March 18 Allowance and February 9 MSW (Maiden Special Weight).

Many think Tenfold is peaking at the right time. His racing schedule has been lighter compared to other Belmont entries.

Key 3

We’ll reuse Tenfold in the 3rd key. The other 2 horses in the 3rd key will be Hofburg and Vino Rosso.

Hofburg wound up 7th at the Kentucky Derby and skipped the Preakness. He seemed much stronger in March after finishing 2nd to Audible in the G1 Florida Derby and winning a MSW race on March 3, 2018.

Vino Rosso also finished middle of the pack at the Derby, coming in 9th. This after a victory in the G1 Wood Memorial on April 7, 2018 at Aqueduct. Before that, he was 4th at the G2 Tampa Bay Derby on March 10, 2018 and 3rd at the G3 Sam F. Davis Stakes on February 10, 2018.

Key 4

Finally, we come to the 4th and final key. We’ll reuse Vino Rosso. Let’s add our sixth and seventh horses, Blended Citizen and Noble Indy.

Blended Citizen just won the G3 Peter Pan Stakes on May 10, 2018. This after finishing 5th at the G2 Bluegrass Stakes on April 7, 2018. He won the G3 Jeff Ruby Stakes at Turfway Park on March 17, 2018 three weeks earlier.

Meanwhile, Noble Indy finished a disappointing 17th at the Kentucky Derby. This was surprising after a victory at the G2 Louisiana Derby on March 24, 2018. Earlier this year Noble Indy was 3rd at the February 17, 2018 G3 Risen Star Stakes to Bravazo.
