Trifecta Strategies


Always remember the basic money management rule. Never bet more than 5% of your total bankroll on any one race. The term 'bankroll' refers to the money we set aside for wagering. NEVER wager with money meant to pay your bills with.


You can catch some very nice payoffs with this wager if you are precise and careful with your action. Here is a super trifecta strategy: Using our DIAMOND REPORT or GOLD REPORT key the 2 horses out of the top 4 picks who are offered at the highest odds near post time. We will call them K1 and K2 (for Key 1 and Key 2) for our example. Bet K1, K2 with picks 1,2,3,4 with picks 5,6,7 (K1,K2/5,6,7/1,2,3,4). In this bet we are playing our 2 KEYS on top with picks 5,6,7 for second and picks 1,2,3,4 for 3rd. This bet costs only $18 on a $1 base!.

Another solid method is to bet picks 1,2,3,4 with 5,6,7 with 1,2,3,4 (1,2,3,4/5,6,7/1,2,3,4) for 1 unit ($2). In this bet we are playing picks 1,2,3,4 on top with picks 5,6,7 for second and picks 1,2,3,4 for 3rd. In getting a likely higher priced horse from picks 5,6,7 to split the trifecta makes the opportunity for a generous payout. This will cost $72 on a $2 base or $36 on a $1 base.

If you see some value in picks 1,2,3,4 then also make a half unit ($1) wager on 1,2,3,4/1,2,3,4/5,6,7. Experiment with what seems to work better at the track(s) you play. You might find the 1,2,3,4/1,2,3,4/5,6,7 to be a better play at your circuit. Take notes and records. If you are investing this kind of money in a race we strongly suggest you be aware of the nuances and bias of your track. Normally when the trifecta comes out of picks 1,2,3,4 the payout is not attractive so that is why we don't go after it. There are exceptions to every rule and if you are sharp they will be apparent to you.
