The Race Place

Recommended Posts

Over all the (37) gallops race days starting next Tuesday (Reefton) through Auckland Cup 10 March. You must 'invest' your $100 on at least 20 of the 37 days. This allows anyone to enter as late as Day 17 and plenty of 'NO' bet days if you choose.  Self-scoring with updates posted end of day or when you next post y

Maxi will also put up a $100 prize for the winner (being the highest $$ profit after Raceday 37 (Auckland Cup Day, 10 March). Note highest $$ profit is different from %-age profit, ..so the more days you play the more opportunities to make a higher profit.
For the sake of clarity, you do not have to actually invest the $100, just post the bet(s) 

The prize for the winner of Maxi's $100 NZ Gallops Challenge is $100 in bet(s) to be taken by the winner (and posted on this thread by Max) before 31 March 2024.

All at Bet365 prices (with NZ TAB prices in brackets to prove a point)

1. $20 win Blanche at $8 ($9 on TAB) won

2. $20 win Wind In My Wings at $13 ($14 on TAB)

3. $20 win Raptylight at $3.60 ($3.50 on TAB)

6. $20 win on Ladyswey at $10 ($10 on TAB)

8. $20 win on Gunnar at $17 ($18 on TAB)

At 5pm yesterday these horses were paying.

1. $10

2. $11

3. $4

6. $13

8. $18

If the person banging on about some sort of unfair advantage from using 365 can prove it from these figures I'm all ears.

Of course, in the unlikely event of one of these being late scratched the price could be affected but easy enough to adjust the collect.

A complete mountain out of a molehill.

Don't know who Curious is but I think he has just destroyed this comp.🤪

I flew the gates in Barry's challenge too, steadily drifted and had no finish. 36 furlongs to go. Staying power required!
