Yankee Staking Plan

So what is a Yankee?

You've probably heard about this approach to staking at different times in your gambling life so let's explain it very simply -simple enough so even I can understand it!

Supposedly the "Yankee Bet" was named after an American soldier who once had a "Yankee" with UK bookmaker William Hill and for next to nothing as far as outlay was concerned, reportedly won nearly $200,000. Whether this is true or just an urban
myth is now lost in the proverbial mists of time but here's how they supposedly work:

A Yankee is merely a series of bets on four horses (your best four of the day if you like) which encompasses 6 all up doubles, four all up trebles and one four horse all up.

Say your four best horses of the day are named A B C and D (duh!).

Your all up doubles are:
A all up B
A all up C
A all up D
B all up C
B all up D
C all up D

The all up trebles are:
A all up B all up C
A all up B all up D
A all up C all up D
B all up C all up D

The all up "quaddie" is, of course, A all up B all up C all up D.

So your "Yankee" costs you 11 units, whatever your unit of betting is, and when you hit that really tremendous day the pay off can be enormous. Even just a good day can reap some pretty handsome rewards and of course the four horses can be
spread over any State or meeting you like - even spread the four bets over the two days of a weekend - it doesn't really matter.

Some even use place Yankees or a mix of both where the four horse "quaddie" is for all of them to run a place with the other bets all up win bets. (You may have heard that approach being touted by certain people in radio land!)

A pure double Yankee involves all place bets as well as win bets on the same four horses (each way betting if you like). Yes - it does take some strategy and planning and execution of the all ups and some pretty deft book keeping skills may be needed
but once you get the hang of it, it is quite straight forward and you don't need to be Einstein to figure it out.

No staking plan can make up for plainly poor selections.
