WHAT IS A BOX TRIFECTA?

A box trifecta is a type of trifecta bet where the bettor selects a number of runners (3 or more) to fill the 1st, 2nd and 3rd places.

The catch is that ta box trifecta is likely to cost more than a normal trifecta, depending on the number of selections.

FLEXI TRIFECTA

A flexi bet trifecta allows the bettor to only pay a certain percentage of the trifecta cost in return for the same percentage dividend. For example, if the bettor wanted to place a box trifecta for 7 runners, the cost would be $210. However, the bettor could place a flexi bet and only pay for 20% of the trifecta and pay $42.
