The object of the Trio Staking Plan is to pick out your best
three horses/dogs for the day and concentrate solely on them PROVIDED
they are better than $3.00 (2/1).
You have an all up for the place on the three of them and then
back each individually until one of them wins, then you stop for
the day in front.
To demonstrate, let's call them X Y and Z (which, let's face
it, would be pretty stupid names for racehorses!).
You invest seven units (whatever your betting "unit"
is) ALL UP for the place on X Y and Z.
If your normal betting unit is $10 that would be $70 all up.
You then invest 4 units a win on horse X. If it wins (at better
than 2/1 -remember?) you have no more win bets for the day and
you must finish in front regardless of what happens with your
still live all up place bet with the next two.
If it loses you then have 8 units a win on horse Y.
If it wins you must end up in front for the day IF it is better
than 2/1 ($3.00) and hopefully your all up place bet is still
If horse Y loses you have 12 units on horse Z.
If it wins (at better than $3.00 or 2 /1) you must finish in
front for the day.
Your total invest to this point 31 units and return is a minimum
$36 and hugely more if all three are placed.
The main point is that you do stop betting straight out when
you snare a winner and it is better than $3.00 or 2/1 and you
are assured of a profit.
Of course, if it is better than $3.00 you profit more and the
times when it is less than $3.00 will hopefully be offset by the
times when it is better than $3.00.
The place all up treble is a separate transaction which will
either boost a good winning day or maybe offset the losses if
you don't trap a winner.
As with all things, try it out on paper for a while first and
see for yourself
staking plan can make up for plainly poor selections.
