Caulfield Cup Betting Types

The following is a list of the various types of bets you might place on the Caulfield Cup at an online betting site like

Straight bets – Win (which horse will finish first).

Place – (horse must place first or second).

Show – (must place in top three).

Across the board wager – (horse will take either of the first three places).

Quinella – Choosing two horses in no specific order to win first and second placings. Although the punter has good odds, a quinella will pay less than a trifecta.

Box Exacta – The punter selects the first two places in any order.

Trifecta – Picking the first three winning horses in the correct order.

Box trifecta – First three horses in any order.

Standout trifecta – Picking the winner and then the next two horses in any order.

Superfecta – Same as trifecta plus the fourth placed horse.
