Title: For Future Consideration
Post by: Starfish on September 25, 2013, 09:39:17 PM
Shanthi,

I know that Handicapping/Betting is not going to be very high on your priority list for the rewrite but, when you do get around to it, I have a suggestion for two additional bet types (on top of Trish's already suggested Superfecta):-
First of all, as Trish (North Oak) said, Quiniella should be renamed Exacta.
Quiniella:- First two picks must finish 1-2 in any order - $250.
Triple Forecast (can't think of a better name):- Picks must finish 1-2-3 in any order - $500.

Aw I feel loved that you mentioned my thoughts on the topic :)

I think Shanthi said Superfecta could be a possibility in the rewrite.  There was a thread on it in the betting forum

Oh and how about a 'Pick 6'

I believe this is called a "trifecta box".

Thank you. That definitely has a better ring than "Triple Forecast". I figured that there had to be a name for that type of bet (shows how much I know about betting on horses in the US).
