There are different types of the trifecta:

Standard trifecta

A standard trifecta implies having the initial three runners over the line in a specific order. Suppose you had the number 1 to win, 4 to come next and number 7 to come third in your trifecta. They would need to cross the line in that exact sequence to get a payout.

Box/Flexi Trifecta

  • 1,4,7

Champion trifecta

The last kind of trifecta is the champion trifecta. This implies on the off chance that you have the numbers 1, 4, 7 in your wager and you trust that number 7 will probably win, then you can check number 7 in the first box on your wagering slip, and number 1 and 4 in the second box on your slip. This implies number 7 must win, while the numbers 1 and 4 can complete second and third in any sequence. You can do a similar thing on the off chance that you believe a horse will come second or third.


First Four
