  • b.) what you’ll need to tell the window clerk when you’re placing a bet (applies to off track betting and wagering on the internet),
  • c.) and alternate methods of betting while at the race track by using the SAMS machines to place your bets. Let’s take a look:

What to Tell the Clerk

When you’re ready to post your bet, you’ll tell the clerk 5 things:

  1. Which track
  2. Which race
  3. How much money you want to bet
  4. What kind of bet you want, i.e.: win, place, show, exacta, etc.
  5. The number of the horse.

For example, by using the criteria above, what you say to the window clerk might be: “Santa Anita, race number three, $2.00 to win on horse number seven.” Easy, huh?

Self Service Terminals *

* Also known as Screen Activated Machines, or SAMS

  1. First you need a voucher which may be purchased from any clerk or voucher machine.
  2. After you insert the voucher in the machine, the machine will ask you what track you want to bet on (Bay Meadows, Oaklawn, Santa Anita, Churchill Downs, etc.).
  3. Once you have designated the track, the machine will ask you how much you want to bet.
  4. Finally, the machine will show you a variety of wages that may be made.

If you need assistance, there are customer service representatives located in the general area of all SAMS.
