Kennedy Cantala Betting Options

There are many different ways to bet on the Kennedy Mile. While some bets – like the Kennedy Mile exotic bets – may be a little confusing for an inexperienced punter, there are plenty of standard bets that are quickly understood and easy to place.

Win – In a win bet you place a stake on a selection to win the Kennedy Mile. This is a simple bet that offers a great pay-out if you pick correctly.

Place – In a place bet you select a horse to come first, second or third in the Kennedy Mile– increasing your chances of winning compared to a straight win bet.

Each-Way – An each way bet incorporates two bets on just one horse. Select one horse to either win or place in the Kennedy Mile for the chance to receive two pay-outs if your selection comes first or to still collect some winnings if your selection comes in second or third.

Kennedy Cantala Exotic Bets

For professional or simply well-practised punters the Kennedy Mile betting is all about exotic bets. Exotic bets involve up to four horses at a time and are a lot more complex to pull off than the standard Kennedy Mile bets. However, with a little help from our comprehensive guide you will be able to bet on the Kennedy Mile like you were born at the track.

Kennedy Cantala Quinella

For a winning Kennedy Mile quinella, you have to determine the first two horses to cross the line – however, the order in which they arrive is not important. As long as your two runners of choice are the first horses home, you have won and have a huge payout to look forward to.

Kennedy Cantala Exacta

A Kennedy Mile exacta works similar to an Kennedy Mile quinella: again you choose the first two horses to finish the race; however, in an Kennedy Mile exacta you must pick them in the exact order of arrival. This makes the Kennedy Mile exacta a difficult bet to win, but in turn it does offer a bigger payout than the Kennedy Mile quinella.

Kennedy Cantala Trifecta

To win an Kennedy Mile trifecta you have to pick the first three runners across the finish line in the exact order of arrival. An Kennedy Mile trifecta is considered a massive achievement within the betting community if you can pull it off. To reduce the difficulty of this bet, you can try to place a box trifecta instead, which covers every possible trifecta combination of your selected horses.

Kennedy Cantala First Four

For a successful Kennedy Mile First Four, you must pick the first four thoroughbred runners to finish the race, in exact order. To pick a winning Kennedy Mile First Four is no easy feat by any stretch but it does bring you invaluable track credit as a serious punter, as well as a massive payout. As with the trifecta, placing a boxed version of this bet will increase your chances of a win, though it is more expensive.
