Horse Racing Betting, Briefly Explained

With FanDuel Racing, you have many options. Briefly, below are some chances to retire early if you handicap your picks correctly.

Win, Place, Show: Picking the Podium

The basic bet types are of course win, place and show. A win bet means your horse must win, a place bet means it must finish first or second, and a show bet means it must be in the top three positions though, which results in a lower payout.

Exactas and Trifectas

These are bets that let you reduce your risk. With an exacta bet you need to predict the top two finishers in the right order. A trifecta bet requires you to select horses to finish first, second and third.

Futures: Getting in Early

Any wager you make weeks or even months in advance of an event. Similar to how, you could bet on the potential Super Bowl winner before the NFL playoffs. In horse racing, futures work the same way.

Futures are wagers on long term events which generally won’t have a result for many weeks or even months like the Triple Crown. The most popular type of futures wager is placed on the outright market which basically means, who will win the race? FanDuel Racing also offers many other markets outside of the winner, usually including 2nd and 3rd place. The odds on futures change as the event gets closer and more is known about the horse, jockeys, and track conditions. Very often odds will also be updated in the lead up to a major race.
