If you’re stuck between two horses and can’t decide which will win and which will come second, you can cover all your bases with a Quinella Bet. In a Quinella Bet, you simply choose two horses and you’re a winner if they come first and second in your race.
The order of their finish does not matter. If you choose the No. 4 and No. 5 horse, you’re a winner on a Quinella bet if they finish 4-5 or 5-4.
There’s more to Quinellas though. There is also a Quinella Box bet. In a Quinella Box, you must choose three or more horses. If two of these three or more horses finish first and second, you’re a winner. So if you go with the No. 3, 4 and 5 horses, you will win if the finish is 3-4, 4-3, 3-5, 5-3, 4-5 or 5-4.
If you want to double up the odds on your Quinella Bets, you can do just that by placing a Quinella Double. A Quinella Double is two Quinella Bets in different races. Pick two horses to come first and second in each race and if you’re right in both races you’re paid.
