Our exacta betting strategy continues to pay off with three from three exotics bets hitting in conjunction with my Saturday Tips this past Saturday in horse racing betting and I am not going to stop now as we build some exotics bets around my Wednesday Tips with the Group 1 races season approaching as Spring racing officially kicks off this Saturday and I am keen to try build some value exotics around my horse racing tips / best bets tips. The best bets tips are worth checking out in addition to this article and the Wednesday tips as it has key track insights and promotions information for the promotions going around on the Aussie betting sites / betting apps. The below article features three exotics bets, two exactas and a trifecta that should prove lucrative if even one comes in. Let’s try get some big exotics wins across our horse racing betting sites!
Best Exotic Tips of the Day | August 16th
Exacta - Sandown Lakeside - R4
1st: 1, 7
2nd: 1, 4, 6, 7
The #7 is my best overall bet of the day at Sandown tomorrow and also in my best bets tips article where I have a full write up on his prospects but we are backing him to roll a hot favourite so as such in this exacta I have included that favourite to win and then some other outside chances to fill second if either my top pick or favourite do not show up tomorrow. Full write up in the free horse racing tips for Sandown Lakeside.
Exacta - Canterbury Park - R4
1st: 3, 9, 4
2nd: 3, 4, 9, 11
The #3 is my roughie of the day in best bets tips and in the horse racing tips at Canterbury Park and whilst I really do think he is the leading contender here he’s going to have to get past a couple good things in the two favourites (4, 9) and as such I have included him in both lines of betting but also the 4, 9 in both as they could easily take out the exacta. Full write up on the #3’s chances in best bets tips article.
Trifecta - Canterbury Park - R5
1st: 1, 4, 10
2nd: 1, 4, 9, 10
3rd: 1, 2, 4, 9
Going for all the chocolates with this one as I do think that the #10 is a standout bet and is my best bet in my Wednesday Tips at Canterbury Park but I think if he doesn’t get there he will fill the exacta and as such have included him for second place as well as the main key chances who I think can surprise and take this race out at big odds. If that is the case then our trifecta will pay very nicely and will cover the best bet missing.
Stats and Insights
- Trifecta betting can prove extremely lucrative when a higher odds runner fills any of the spots in the trifecta as it massively boosts the total odds.
- 50% of runners that finish first in the trifecta were placed in their start prior
- More than 65% of runners that finish second in trifectas finished 1st-5th in their start prior
- A simple way of comparing two horses that you are considering adding into your exacta / trifecta is to add their placings from the last four starts and take the smaller of the two
