* Please note: Racing from Dubai offers bets with slightly different terminology than American racing

In American racing we have three "straight" or basic bets that only involve one horse or one race: WIN (finish 1st), PLACE (top 2 finisher), and SHOW (top 3 finisher).

However, Dubai offers wagering like much of the rest of the world (Hong Kong, South Africa, etc.) where there are only two "straight" bets.

  • WIN – you horse must finish first to win your bet.
  • PLACE – your horse must finish in the top three to win your bet.

To compare it to American racing, Dubai only offers WIN and SHOW betting but they call a SHOW bet PLACE!

All other "exotic" bets (bets that involve multiple horses or races) use the same terminology.
