Ways to bet Trifectas

There are 3 ways to bet trifectas. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages.

The simplest is a straight trifecta. It’s also difficult to win. You can only pick 3 horses. These horses must finish in the exact order you specified.

Trifecta Boxes and Wheels are two alternatives. You can add more than 3 horses to either bet. This increases the likelihood of winning in exchange for a higher bet cost.

The following video explains how to place a wheel bet. The procedure is the same for exactas and superfectas. Watch the entire video for help with other bets!

  1. Straight Trifecta Bet – Pick 3 horses to finish in the top 3 positions. Final order matters.
  2. Trifecta Box Bet – Pick any number of horses to finish in the top 3 positions. Final order does not matter.
  3. Trifecta Part Wheel Bet – Select horses to key into each position: first, second and third. Final order does matter depending on how you key each horse.

Efficiency Increases Value

Trifecta Boxes are more likely to win because final order does not matter. A box is less efficient than a wheel because you end up buying more combinations than you need.

Trifecta 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.

2019 Belmont Stakes Trifecta Picks & Advice

I recommend a 4 horse Trifecta Part Wheel, keying 2 horses in the first position, 3 horses in the second position and 4 horses in the third. Why?

A 4 horse Trifecta Box costs $24, $1 per combination. But a 4 horse Trifecta Part Wheel using my recommendation is only $8, $1 per combination. The part wheel bet is more efficient. You stand to win more for a much cheaper wager.

You save money because your third horse is excluded from the first key. Also, your fourth horse is excluded from both the first and second keys. Why pay for these horses if they’re not likely to win?

You’ll be making a more efficient bet with higher profit potential. And you’ll be way ahead of the newbie crowd. They tend to bet win, place or show only.

How to Key Horses in a Trifecta Part Wheel

Review the above clip from our “How to Bet on Horses” video tutorial. I’ll discuss this wager and each horse below.

Let’s create our Trifecta Part Wheel keys from the Belmont Stakes Odds table.

As of writing, Tacitus is the favorite. He finished third at the Kentucky Derby, sitting out the Preakness altogether. He’s trained by William I. Mott. Tacitus won both the G2 Wood Memorial and G2 Tampa Bay Derby held earlier this year.

Now let’s pick one more horse for the first key. Also add this horse to your 2nd and 3rd keys.

War of Will won the Preakness and finished 7th at the Derby. Earlier this year, War of Will was 7th at the G2 Louisiana Derby. Other victories include the G2 Risen Star Stakes on February 16, 2019 and G3 Lecomte on January 19, 2019.

Next, we’ll add a third horse to our 2nd key. Also put this horse in the 3rd key.

Intrepid Heart was recently 3rd at Belmont Park’s Peter Pan Stakes on May 11, 2019. Previously, he won an Allowance at Keeneland on April 5, 2019.

Finally we’ll add a 4th and final horse to our 3rd key.

Master Fencer is trained by Koichi Tsunoda, owned by Katsumi Yoshizawa. He was 6th at the Kentucky Derby.
