The easiest horse bets to describe may be the most difficult to actually win. A Pick 3 is when a bettor selects the winner in three consecutives races, before the first race begins.
To win the bet, all three horses must win their race. This is similar to sports parlay betting where you pick the winner of three football teams, but all three must win in order for you to collect.
Now that you can identify and play a Pick 3, doing the same for a Pick 6 should be obvious. And even harder to pull off. In a Pick 6 wager, the bettor must select the winner in six consecutive races before the first race begins. If all six horses win their race, you’re paid out a handsome amount for your handicapping skill.
