What is an Exacta? - how to place an Exacta bet

Harness racing action

An Exacta bet is available on every thoroughbred, harness and greyhound race provided there are at least three or more runners.

To win an Exacta, you must successfully predict the 1st and 2nd placegetters in correct order.

There are several ways to place an Exacta, with punters being able to pick from a minimum of two runners up to a maximum of the field size.

WHERE TO PLACE AN EXACTA BET
You can place Exacta bets with most bookmakers such as Sportingbet, Sportsbet, Palmerbet and Luxbet, while some bookmakers also offer fixed odds Exacta bets.

Here are some Exacta bet options:

BASIC EXACTA
Simply choose the first two placegetters past the post, in correct order. 

BOX EXACTA
A Box Exacta enables punters to choose as many runners as deemed fit. As long as two of your selections finish 1st and 2nd you win the Exacta. 



BANKER EXACTA
If you are confident in a single runner winning the respective race then a Banker may prove more profitable. Select the Banker to win and choose any number of runners to finish 2nd.  If your Banker finishes 1st and one of your other selections finishes 2nd, you win the Exacta.
 
MULTIPLE EXACTA
A Multiple Exacta allows you to select as many runners as you like for each placing. For example, you can take three runners for 1st and five runners for 2nd. As long as one of your runners fills the nominated placing, you win the Exacta. 

SCRATCHINGS
If one or more of your selections are declared non-runners or are scratched after you have placed your bet, your money will be refunded on every combination that includes the scratched runner.
