The Race Place
Lucky Seven Round 2 of this iconic individual comp Sat Dec 2

5 to Win Comp Round 3 - Sat Dec 2


Recommended Posts

ROUND 3 - Trentham Sat Dec 5 - 9 races  + one from Oz - closes 12.39pm

Races 1-9: Trentham card

Race 10:  Doomben Race 5 - Roku Gin Winning Rupert Plate



1. For each day of competition I will choose a meeting - some will be in NZ, some in Australia. All races at that meeting are eligible for your selections.

2. You will be required to make 5 selections of your choice each day, no more, no less. All selections must be made before the start of the first race on the program irrespective of whether you have a bet in that race. You may choose whatever races you like for your 5 selections but with the proviso of only one horse per any given race. See Rule 5 below regarding posting a sub.

3. Your first selection of the day will carry an imaginary $10/place investment. If successful, the return from this bet will carry over (the full dollar amount) to your second selection and so on. The aim is to get all 5 place selections on the day, in the money. If any miss, your only return from the day will be your loose change (cents not re-invested).

4. If you manage to get all 5 selections placed then your daily total will be banked towards your overall score (as will your cents if you miss). The player with the most $$ at the close of racing on Dec 19 wins. Sounds easy ? If all 5 of your selections WIN then your daily final total will be doubled !

5. Scratching Rule. You may replace scratchings up until 5 mins before the first race on the card at the stipulated meeting. Replace in a new post. Do not edit your original selections. If you don't replace a scratching then your entry will be invalid for that meeting. If you suffer a late scratching then your investment will go on the NZ TAB fave. You may post one sub that I will use in the event of a normal scratching. This sub must be posted with your original selections.

6. My decision and word is Final

Post your selections by race # and horse # below. Names are optional. Posting a sub is optional. If you post a sub in the same race as one of your selections then it will only be eligible to replace that one selection. It would make sense that if you are going to post a sub then select a different race from your 5 selections. There is no need to post a sub if you are aware of all scratchings and have posted accordingly with this considered.

Ok you'll notice some posts have disappeared from this thread.

PJ puts a lot of work into these comps and doesn't deserve to have private vendettas played out on his comp threads.

This is not censorship. Just trying to keep a bit of decorum to something that has always been wonderful fun.

Remember that word.

Can people remember  to take their "meds" this weekend  please. 

On reflection I think the "meds" is having an adverse effect. Maybe miss a dose or ween off slowly. Other wise Chemist Warehouse has specials on Tena Pants "MAXI" 10 pack for those dribbling from both ends. 🙃

One of my 'Super 5' has defected ........ a scratching.

Please replace Wellington R8-2 Pris de Fer with Wellington R7-5 Belle Plaisir

Many thanks, PJ.

If ever there was an omen bet in the windy city today it would have to be horse 1 - Stormy in R5.
Perfectly named for the venue. I'm onto it, like many other entrants ...it's one of my 'Super 5 ' 😁.
