How to Wager

Pari-Mutuel Betting

Please realize that you are not betting against the track. The management acts as your agent and collects a percentage as fixed by Florida State Law. The public makes the odds and pay-off on the winning dogs only, and the management neither gains nor loses, if you win or lose. Your ticket and all other tickets, purchased on the dog that wins, are actually a partnership, betting against the other patrons who have bought tickets on the other dogs in the race.

When the results are official and you have a winning ticket, you and all other patrons of the track holding winning tickets, collect posted pay-off at any mutuel window.

Advance and Future Betting

You can advance bet on any race on the current program or you can bet on any race on the next immediate racing card. For example, Thursday you can bet on Friday night’s racing or Saturday evening you can bet Monday’s matinee card. Bets are accepted only during racing hours at track.
