Place a Bet

Placing your first bet can be an overwhelming experience, but it isn’t as complicated as it may look. The following explains the procedure for betting at the track.

  1. State the name of the racetrack. (Most tracks offer betting on multiple tracks that you can see on the monitors around your track.)
  2. State what number race you are betting.
  3. State the dollar amount of your bet.
  4. State the type of wager. (See our types of bets page)
  5. State the number of the horse or horses you are using.
  6. Check your ticket before you leave the window for accuracy.

An example of placing a straight bet could sound like “Emerald Downs, Race three, $2 Win bet on number 5.”

An example of placing an exotic bet could sound like “Santa Anita, Race one, $1 Pick 4, 1,2,3 w/ 4 w/ 1,5,8 w/ ALL.”
