New Fun Comp - Midweek 5 To Win

Recommended Posts

Starting on Wednesday (Jan 18) will be a new comp with a completely different format. Named FIVE TO WIN, it will be an individual comp which will run for the rest of the year until Christmas. It will be run on a midweek meeting (Tues, Wed or Thu) with primarily NZ meetings but maybe with the odd Oz one thrown in. It is very simple:

1. For each day of competition I will choose 5 consecutive races at a meeting.

2. You will be required to make a selection of your choice in each of the 5 races, no more, no less. All selections must be made before the start of the first race on the schedule.

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 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 the final meeting of the month will be that month's winner. The final meeting of the year will be a Grand Final only open to the monthly winners.

5. Scratching Rule. You may replace scratchings up until 30 mins before the first race on the schedule 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.

If you have any questions or queries please ask now so we can iron them out. This comp is basically a copy of a little illegal betting game that used to operate in the Manawatu in the mid-1970s which was run by an ex-jumps jockey Dave Findlay who was the Kiwi Bacon and Ham delivery driver for the region. Does anyone remember Dave ?

Last time I ran it - 3 years ago - Gordy was the Winner.

It looks an easier contest than it actually is....

STARTS WEDNESDAY AT TE RAPA
