I like trifectas as much as the next guy, M1 uses a 1 dollar tri and super if I am not mistaken. Someone told me that it's the same as a 2 dollar payout just that it's cut in half. I seem to think that their 1 dollar tri pays more than 1/2's of 2 dollar tri's that I am used to seeing. Any thoughts?

As always -- you can either help someone out...or be an ***hole.  Sheesh.  Anyway.

The payoffs for $1 and $2 are exactly the same at any track.  You get the payoff by dividing the pool (minus the takeout -- 25% at Balmoral and Maywood), by the number of winners.  So, if you hit it for $2, you'll get twice as much as if you hit it for $1.

NOW, you've noticed that the $1 tris at the Big M tend to pay more than half of the $2 tris at Balmoral.  You are actually "correct" in a way.  Pretty much, it's because they are HARDER to hit, because there's a couple things in play:

-there's nearly always 10 horses in a field, which makes for more combinations, and naturally, makes in harder
-the racing is more competitive, and therefore, it's tougher to pick your winners.

Due to these reasons, you'll notice that the Big M tris pay well -- however, it technically has nothing to do with the $1/$2 thing, it's other factors.

Here's an example for you:

Tri pool = $45,000
MINUS takeout - $11,250

means $33,750 to be paid out to winners...and lets say there are $22 in winning tickets.

the $1 winner would equal $1534.09, and with the "breakage" (rounding to the nearest .20, the $1 payoff is $1534.00 and the $2 is $3068.00.

Have a good one!

Best,
EW
