Have you ever wondered what a Win/Place/Show bet is? You may have seen this bet commonly abbreviated to WPS. A win place show wager lets you bet on a horse and if the horse finishes in first place, you get paid full odds for the win bet, and partial odds on the show and place bets. Here is an example, let’s say you decide to bet on Revolutionary to win place or show at the Derby this year. If Revolutionary comes in 2nd, better known as “Show”, you would lose the win part of your bet but you would still get paid for “Showing” and you’d also get paid for “Placing.” You can determine the exact payouts of these horses by checking out the tote board after the race is complete. This usually tells you the payoff of each of these bets in multiples of $2.

Also if you are wondering which horse this is below it is Goldencents and you may have heard of his owner, Rick Pitino. Rick Pitino is the head coach of the Louisville Cardinals that won the the 2013 Men’s NCCAA Basketball tournament earlier this month in April. Goldencents recently won the Santa Anita Derby and many are thinking Pitino’s lucky streak may extend into the Kentucky Derby. It is also noteworthy to mention that Pitino was also inducted into the Men’s College Basketball Hall of Fame during this great winning streak of his.
