Derby - Wager Primer

I almost forget to do this every year:

Here's a list of the kinds of bets one can place at the track. There's some overlap between U.S. and UK betting jargon in there, so don't be too surprised if you get funny looks when you place a "straight forecast."

Here's another list, but it makes no mention of quinellas, which are (if memory serves - I've never placed one) lower-risk, lower-return "box" wagers.

Right. Here's one more list. This one offers the most thorough list of terms and wagers, as well as offering elaborations and examples....I think.

Still, between the three of them, you should be able to find something that makes sense.
