On Saturday night, the 146th running of the Belmont Stakes took place at Belmont Park in Elmont, New York as California Chrome attempted to complete his bid at history by winning the final and longest leg of the Triple Crown to join the prestigious group of horses.
California Chrome was unfortunately upset by Tonalist, which means those who laid down some money on the big race were in for a big pay day.
With a superfecta bet, you could have brought home more than $5,7000 while the smallest payout was $348 for a $2.00 exacta wager.
Because there was a tie for fourth-place between California Chrome and Wicked Strong, there are two superfecta payouts.
Below are the payouts for today’s race:
- $2.00 exacta — 11-8 — $348.00
- $1 trifecta — 11-8-1 — $3,390.50
- $1.00 superfecta — 11-8-1-2 — $3,80800.
- $1.00 superfecta — 11-8-1-9 — $5,728.50
For those who don’t quite understand what a “superfecta” is, it is where the bettor, in order to win, must pick the first four finishers of a race in the correct sequence. Yes, it is even more unlikely to cash in on a superfecta bet than the trifecta, but the payout is huge.
