Triactor Boxes

Example of triactor box ticketBoxing numbers in a triactor bet means that all numbers chosen are put in every possible combination to provide a greater possibility of correctly selecting the first three finishers. If the numbers 1, 2, and 5 are boxed, the combinations of 1-2-5, 1-5-2, 2-1-5, 2-5-1, 5-1-2, and 5-2-1 are covered. As long as the first three finishers involve the numbers 1, 2, 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 triactor 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 dollar amount of the wager. EXAMPLE: A five-horse triactor box for $3 would be computed 5 (number of horses to be boxed) x 4 (next lowest number) x 3 (next lowest number) x 3(dollar amount of the wager) = $180.
3 6 $1 ($2) $6 ($12)
4 24 $1 ($2) $24 ($48)
5 60 $1 ($2) $60 ($120)
6 120 $1 ($2) $120 ($240)
7 210 $1 ($2) $210 ($420)
8 336 $1 ($2) $336 ($672)
9 504 $1 ($2) $504 ($1008)
10 720 $1 ($2) $720 ($1440)
