To win a Quinella, you must select first and second in any order.

A Quinella bet is available on every race provided there are at least three (3) or more runners.

With a Quinella you can specify the Maximum Spend you wish to make. The minimum investment per combination is 1% and the Maximum Spend per ticket must be in multiples of a $1. The minimum Spend is $3 unless your investment per combination is 100%. Dividends are calculated and declared on a $1 basis. For further details, see the Fractional Betting page.

Keep a look out for Quinella jackpots. If there are no winning units on a Quinella, the pool jackpots to another meeting at a future date. The jackpot pool is always carried over to a meeting of the same code of racing. Please note that partial jackpots occur when the total winning investment is less than $1.

There are four ways to take a Quinella bet:


For a Standard Quinella, choose the first two placegetters past the post, in any order. As long as your two selections finish first and second, you collect the Quinella dividend.


With a Box Quinella you can choose as many runners as you like, providing two of your selections finish first and second, in any order. The more runners you 'Box' in a Quinella the more combinations you get.


If you feel there's a 'sure thing' in a race that looks certain to win or at worst run second, then a Banker Quinella is a perfect type of bet. Your 'Banker' would be the 'sure thing' and you can group it with any number of other runners in that race. Providing your 'Banker' runs first or second and any one of your other selections finishes first or second with your 'Banker', you win the Quinella. The more 'other' selections you take, the more combinations you get.


A Multiple Quinella allows you take as many runners as you like for each placing. For example, you can take three (3) runners for first or second, and five (5) runners to fill the other placing. Provided that one of your runners selected in the first leg places either first or second, and one of your runners selected for the second leg fills the other placing (second or first), then you win the Quinella.


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