Utilizing the Keys to the TRIFECTA, SUPERFECTA & SUPER HI 5 Kingdoms!!!
So what Andy is saying, basically, is that because most fans just throw money at the exotics, with scant knowledge of how to pick the correct horses or efficiently construct a ticket, ☛that the smart Exotic player can enjoy collecting many major overlays – often in the thousands of dollars range.
Now, when Andy originally wrote this, betting the Exotics was not for everyone because of the cost of the tickets. Trifectas were minimum $1 or $2 combo tickets and Supers were $1. Now, however, Trifectas have been reduced to a .50 wager at many tracks and Superfectas a dime. >>So a Superfecta ticket that used to cost $48 can now be had for $4.80. This has opened the door to allow virtually all players’ budgets to handle Exotic wagering.<<
Let’s look at some examples:
First, an explanation of the betting boxes at the bottom of the screen:
JP Handicapping Prime box features the ‘Key’ horse in the Exotic bets. Now, and this is important, the Prime horse wins and places often, @56% of the time, so you have a solid win/place feature with this software as well.
Trifecta 1 is you basic 4-horse Trifecta box. You can expect about 21% of the Tris you play to hit, some a very nice prices. This is also a good wager to use if you are an Exacta Bettor, either by boxing or keying the Prime horse with the other three. Also, crisscrossing the four horses in this box in the Daily Double also boasts high hit rate (@41%).
Trifecta 2 is more adventurous as it features 5 horses, but the payoffs can be fantastic. The idea is to make this wager only in races with 9 horses or more. You will hit close to 34% of your Trifecta wagers using this box. This box can also be used for a Superfecta box using 5 horses – hit rate @17% — average payoff: $447
Superfecta Box uses two Key horses along with several others — this is the wager (and the next) where the Chaos Theory programming comes into play. Playing a .10 Superfecta this bet costs just $2.40 and the payoff potential is huge.
Super Hi 5 Box provides wagering strategies for one of racings’ toughest-to-hit bets. It only activates in races with 9 horses or more. Super Hi 5 wagering is not for everybody, but this wager can produce lottery-like payoffs. Many tracks offer .50 Super Hi 5s, which puts the cost within reach of many horseplayers.
