Heading up to Del Mar for the Races?

Gary’s Great Bets for People who Want to Spend a Little and Possibly WIN a Lot

$1.00 Exacta’s in all races, pick the winner and who comes in second. Can pay hundreds of dollars.

$1.00 Trifecta’s in all races, pick the winner, second, and third horse in exact order. Can pay thousands of dollars.

$0.10  Superfecta’s in most races, pick first, second, third, and fourth horses in exact order. I have seen this bet pay thousands of dollars for a dime.

One of my favorites is the $0.50 pick 5. Pick the winners of the first 5 races. The sky is the limit for this payoff for a couple quarters

The best bet? The fun you will have at Del Mar.
