    Straight Play:

    Small budget?  Look to play '$2 win wagers' on every horse – that would cost $40.

    Exotic Play:

    Place $2 win wagers on every horse mixed with some place & show wagers (guaranteed winners will be selected).

    Place a few $1 Exacta Box wagers (2 horses to come first and second in any order) – this is harder to hit, but you get a better payout!

    Trizotic Play:

    Play a few $1 Trifecta Box wagers with the two favorite horses to see if you can strike it Big! It will cost you $6 a wager with three horses, but what a return you'll get if it comes in!
