Superfecta Boxes

Boxing numbers in a superfecta bet means that all numbers chosen are put in every possible combination to provide a greater possibility of correctly selecting the first four finishers. If the numbers 1, 2, 3, and 5 are boxed, the 24 possible combinations of those numbers are covered. As long as the first four finishers involve the numbers 1, 2, 3, and 5, the boxed ticket is a winner. The more numbers used in a box, the greater the number of possibilities covered. The more numbers boxed, however, the greater the cost to cover the wager.

A simple rule to remember to compute the cost of a boxed superfecta wager would be as follows: the number of horses to be boxed MULTIPLIED by the next lowest number MULTIPLIED by the next lowest number MULTIPLIED by the next lowest number MULTIPLIED by the dollar amount of the wager. EXAMPLE: A five-horse superfecta box for $1 would be computed 5 (number of horses to be boxed) x 4 (next lowest number) x 3 (next lowest number) x 2 next lowest number) x 1(dollar amount of the wager) = $120.
