A treble is a betting type whereby the bettor must select the winner of each of the three nominated treble races. The bettor can select any number of possible winners in each leg. The cost of the bet is calculated by multiplying the number of selections in each leg.
Trebles are popular with quaddie punters who believe they are a good chance of getting three legs of their quaddie correct. However, it is not an offical bet type offered by the tote. So effectively a treble is 3 leg multi bet.
The cost of a treble is calculated by multiplying the number of selections made in each leg. For example, if the bettor chooses 1 runner in the first leg, 5 runners in the second leg and 3 runners in the last leg, the treble bet will cost 1 x 5 x 3 = $15.
The example shows a treble bet where the bettor has made selections in each of the 3 treble races. If the bettor selects the winner in each leg from those selections they will collect the winning dividend.
Treble betting is not hugely popular and so is not offered by many bookies, especially as it is not a formal bet type with the tote. The bookmakers simply payout the dividend declared by the tote. Some bookmakers now offer an added percentage (%) on top of the tote dividend. For more information, see our bookmakers page.
