A Yankee used to be a popular horse racing bet but is now widely used across all sports. Comprising four selections the potential winnings increase (compared to a trixie) as the odds multiply. To keep the cost of the bet down, singles are removed meaning a Yankee costs 11 times your stake. Beware you need at least two winners to guarantee a return.
