HOW TO COLLECT ON TRACK
Once the race is declared official, take your winning wager to any mutuel window. At that point you can decide to collect the full amount of your winnings or wager back all or part of it on upcoming races. If you are unsure of whether you've won, bring your ticket to any window to have it checked.
Avoid cashing your ticket 5 minutes before any race as many people wait until the last few minutes before a race to place their wagers, and cashing your winnings will slow the process.
