Your bets on French racing will be subject to the rules of the French Tote, the Pari Mutuel (PMU).

We have outlined the notable differences between Tote Ireland rules and the PMU rules here but if you need more information please email us or call us on 045-491830

Win Bets

Bracketed Horses

When several horses declared runners in the same race belong to the same owner or are declared “couplé” for PMU purposes, they are said to be “bracketed”.

If one of these horses is classified first, all win bets placed on the other runners of the bracket having run in the race are awarded the same win dividend.

You can find out which horses are bracketed as they all horses in the same bracket will have the same letter e.g, 'A', 'B' or 'C' shown beside them on the racecard.

Exacta

You can do all the same Exacta combinations on French racing as you do on Irish racing with Tote.

Non-runners

  • When an Exacta combination involves a non-runner and one of the horses classified first, a special win dividend is awarded.
  • An Exacta combination involving a non-runner and a horse bracketed with one of the horses in first place is not eligible for the special win dividend.
  • When an Exacta combination involves a non-runner and one of the two first horses, if there were fewer than eight runners in the race on the official racecard, or among the three first if there were at least eight horses on the official racecard a special place dividend is awarded.

Trifecta

Non-runners

A Trifecta on French racing is only offered on races with between 4 and 7 runners.  When a Trifecta combination involves two non-runners out of the three horses selected, the bet is considered as a win bet on the third horse. It is awarded a special dividend on condition that the horse in question is classified first at the finish.

No special dividend will be awarded to combinations involving two non-runners and a horse bracketed with one of the horses classified first.

When a Trifecta combination involves one non-runner out of the three horses selected, the corresponding bet is considered as an Exacta bet on the two running horses. A special dividend is awarded on condition that the two horses occupy the first two places at the finish, and that they have been selected in the right order of finish.
