Each player Bets "Win, Place, and Show" using poker chips on a color-coded piece of paper you can create yourself.
The simple way to play is that each person bets only 1 chip for each of the three categories and if any hit, Win pays 3, Place pays 2, and Show pays 1.
For a new race give each player 3 chips from the bank to place their bets again.
Start player, (who has a big advantage), has to place all of her bets first. Then the person who goes 2nd, etc.
Everyone gets the same number of moves. Distance past the finish line counts. If tied, then first to get there.
Now, if you bet on your own horse to Place, (i.e. come in 1st or 2nd), you could potentially throw the race to come in 2nd if you betted to Win the chariot just behind you!
