Horse Betting : Place your box bet at USA Sportsbook

The term "box" tells the mutuel clerk that you want all possible combinations of the horses selected in wagers such as exactas, trifectas and superfectas.

Example of Box Bets

Example: Tell the clerk, "Give me a $1 trifecta box numbers 1, 3, and 7. If you box your selections, as long as the horses you have picked finish first, second, and third in any order, you win.
