How to Play Win Place Show

Game Ending

The Win Place Show game is ending. The last race and date to purchase tickets will be January 23, 2021. Winning tickets can be claimed within 180 days of draw/race date. Free and replacement tickets claimed after January 23 will be redeemed for $2.00.

  • Purchase $2 Quick Pick tickets for the featured race. Each ticket features three racehorse numbers and names, along with information about the featured race, including the track name and race time.
  • Scan the QR code or go to your app store and enter "Win Place Show" to download the free Win Place Show mobile app.**
  • Open the Win Place Show app to scan tickets, watch races live or on replay, and check your winnings. 
  • If the race is cancelled or one of your horses scratches, return your ticket to a retailer for a replacement ticket.



The winning numbers are the numbers of horses finishing in the Top Three of the featured race as determined by the Official Results.* Prizes are determined by pooling the wagers and dividing the top prize and second prize pool in equal shares per each prize pool to the winner of those pools. There may also be carryover funds from the last featured race's prize pool if no winning tickets were sold in that tier. See Win Place Show Official Rules.

Race Schedule

Win Place Show featured races are held approximately daily, as closely to 5:00 ET PM as possible. Race details including Racetrack name, post time, and date are printed on your ticket above your three horse names and numbers. For additional race information, download the Win Place Show app.


Winning Number/Horses

Winning numbers are the horse numbers finishing in the Top Three of the featured race. A horse placed in a dead heat with lowest morning line odds will be declared to have finished ahead of the horse with the higher morning line odds. Once declared official, Official Results are final for determining winning numbers and prizes. Any subsequent change to the finish order, including disqualification, will not affect the Official Results. If no tickets match the top prize from the featured race, the top prize pool will carry over to be added to the top prize pool for the next featured race. 

Scratched Horses or Cancelled Races

Replacement tickets are available from a retailer if:

  • A race is canceled due to weather
  • A race is canceled because there are fewer than 4 horses racing
  • The ticket contains a horse who scratches prior to the start of the race

Replacement tickets are eligible for the next available featured race open at the time the replacement ticket is produced. A replacement ticket must be redeemed from a retailer within 180 days of the date of the featured race printed on the replacement ticket.
