New Comp

57 posts in this topic

How many would like to be in for a comp over the Spring, similar to last years one.

Starting next Saturday on every group race run in NZ and Oz between next week and the end of the Spring carnival,in NZ and Oz and with a couple of twists. NZ trotting cup will be included and you will have 2 chances during the course of the comp to play a joker to get you 2x the normal allotted points.

Is there anyone who would like to run this??? And the prizes I will work out when we see the response to having the comp.

Sounds a great idea me and Sarah would have a go of entering.  Couple people on here that already have spreadsheets set up so could run this comp on the side of their others. With losers got laid coming to an end and successful pj comp should get a few starters for this.

Hmm maybe a few too many... and do people want a points system 5,3,1 or an imaginary bet??? So what say then we do all Group 1 and 2 races only that will cut it down a bit???

What about everyone has $10 to spend on every G1/2 race and can either go 10 win, 10 place or 5 each way. Maybe a bit more work for the person that runs it but a bit of strategy involved. I'm in no matter the rules, cheers.

I may have a crack - just for interests sake but...the Trotting Cup will trip me up for sure! Red Hots not really my go. If kiwi horses don't perform in Oz - a lotta people will be tripping up (or "tripping " if they win!). :)

Just keep it the same as last year, 5 group races each week nominated by Scooby, $10 ew, one Best bet per week.

Points system means you get the same for selecting Winx as you do for selecting a 15/1 shot.

I'm in anyway.


The alternative is a totally different comp.

Nimue and I have talked about a format where you have a starting pool, say $10,000

Saturday's only, you could make it group races only or you could elect X number of races, or elect say 2 meetings in Aus, 2 in NZ

Must have X number of bets per Sat, so can't sit on your pool, maybe not, be interesting to see someone just sitting on their 10K pool, as to how they went

Possibly all bet types, maybe not jackpot types like Pick 6.

Maybe a max and min total you have to bet each Saturday, maybe not, $10,000 to win on Winx???

Once your pool is gone you're out


Same format as last year sounds good easier to manage for whoever runs it and if you are like me and sometimes runs close to deadline picking numbers easier then workingout how much to spend and how etc

I'll be in but I guess you'll want me handicapped to give the others a chance Scooby.

I'd like to nominate a few others to run, and I've found a small village called IDIOT with a dozen or so residents that I'd like to call upon. Just to show how good they are and how much they know.

Mike Dillon, Murray Fish, aka Stop It, aka David O'Kane, Kakama, or anyone else from God's rubbish dump aka Rangiora, Colon Wightman & Jayne Ivil.

If you can persuade the five to enter I'll take their combined tally on ( yes five against one ) and the loser has to give $500 to the City Mission or Salvation Army.
