I'll Take "Exactas" for $800, Alex!

We've all had it done to us in our trifectas...The horse we picked to win, wins, the horse we picked to place, places, and then WHAMO, the horse we picked to show, is off having a pretzel at one of the concession stands!  Since that's happened to me about, ohhhhhh, a thousand times, I have decided that today I will make only exacta picks and I will also be placing them in a "box".  Hey, I'm not a seasoned bettor, so I'm entitled!  Now for all you newbie bettors, placing your picks in a "box" means that your two horses can come 1-2 in either order.  For example, if you pick Noname Hanover to win and Fictitious to place, and Fictitious wins and Noname Hanover places - you still win!
