Lucky 7 Comp 2024


Recommended Posts



This will be an INDIVIDUAL COMP. There will be 7 races each Saturday. At least 3 from NZ and at least 3 from Australia. Although you are required to post only one set of selections you will be competing in two different competitions (see below) Note the changes from previously in red.

Three selections per race. $10 each way bet on each while $1 box quinellas and $1 box trifectas will feature combining all 3 selections.


The person with the most winnings at the end of 7 races is the weekly winner. They will be awarded 10 points. The top 6 finishers each week will be awarded points on a 10-6-4-3-2-1 basis. There will also be an additional point for anyone who records a profit irrespective of where you finish.  On the last day of the comp, the top 10 points scorers will compete against each other in a big showdown Grand Final. The winner of the Lucky 7 Championship will be the Grand Final winner.


Each week every competitor will be matched with another competitor in a head-to-head (HTH) rivalry announced just before the first race. If you win your HTH you will score two points and carry your WINNING MARGIN $$ forward. If you lose or if both competitors are eliminated you score nothing and no $$ are carried forward. If you win your HTH but your opponent is eliminated then you carry forward all your winnings. The $$ carried forward will be used as a tie-breaker if more than one competitor finishes level on points. The competitor with the most points at the end of the final day is the Lucky 7 Cup winner.



1. Players. It's an individual comp. If you miss a round just join in for the next one.

2. Selections/Closing time. Competitors are required to select THREE runners per race. No subs are to be posted with your original selections. All selections should be posted at the same time although I may make allowances if this is not possible due to late arrival for posting. The comp will close 45 minutes before the first comp race. This will be firmly adhered to as I have a lot of writing up to do.

3. Scratching Rule. You may post replacements for any scratching by making a new post clearly indicating your replacement selection(s). This may now be done any time up until 45 minutes before the first race which I will refer to as CLOSING TIME.   After this point ALL selections are LOCKED IN. Late scratchings will then go to the TAB sub if not replaced prior to closing time. Normal scratchings will NOT BE REPLACED. If you have two late scratchings one will go to the TAB sub and the other will go to the TAB 2nd win fave.

4. Investments. Each selection will be regarded as an imaginary $10 each way bet. A $1 box quinella and a $1 box trifecta will combine all 3 selections. 

5. Best Bet. Each selector may choose one race each round as a "best bet" race. All $$$ earned from these races will be doubled. In the event of scratchings the same best bet (BB) will apply. There will be no transference to a subsequent race. If your best bet race is abandoned - bad luck !@


6. Elimination Card - Here's the catch ! THIS IS IMPORTANT. If you fail to collect twice - ie. from two of the comp races - during the course of they day, then you are automatically and immediately eliminated. Doesn't matter what your tally is at that point - you lose the lot ! So in other words to complete the day you are only allowed to draw one blank across the 7 races.

I have bad memories of this comp. Clear in the lead coming to the 2nd last one day and crashed ignominiously.

It's a tough gig.

Not wrong there Pete. From memory I used to last only a few races. I think one of the few times I actually kept the pants up, I managed to get a weekly win😂😂
