Remington Lowers Trifecta Takeout

Oklahoma track will offer a lower trifecta wager takeout.

Remington Park

In an effort to share prosperity, Remington Park will offer a lower takeout rate on trifecta wagering. The reduction will take place during the 2012 American Quarter Horse Meeting & Mixed-breed Season, which runs March 2 through May 28.

The trifecta wager takeout percentage will drop from its current 24 percent rate to 21 percent. The lower rate will become one of the lowest in North America for a trifecta wager, which challenges horseplayers to correctly select the top three race finishers in order.

“We want to reward the people who play the Remington Park races,” said Scott Wells, Remington Park president and general manager. “A reduction in the takeout rate on one of our most popular exotic wagers is also intended to attract more national attention to the quality of our racing product.”

The trifecta wager, along with the exacta wager (top two race finishers in order), have comprised the top pair of wagers played by fans year after year at Remington Park. Average race field size at Remington Park is consistently near 10 horses. The field size combined with the lower takeout rate makes the Remington Park trifecta a very enticing play.

Remington Park will reduce its overall wagering menu by one bet this year as the quinella will be cut from the lineup. The quinella challenges players to select the top two race finishers in any order.

Scheduled post times for the Opening Weekend programs will be 6 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, March 2 and 3, with afternoon racing on Sunday, March 4 at 1:30 p.m.
