Who shot the barman scratched

I can.never work out why they dont have emergencys.

Only thing I can think of is the the emergencys would be horse numbers 25, 26, 27, 28 etc etc, and the totes wouldnt be able to handle it if they did get a run.

And looking at it at another way,  I'd say it would be too confusing if the 1st emergency was then allocated horse number 11 (that being Who Shot the Barmans original horse number).

Pretty sure they dont.

The only way I could see the NZ TAB being able to take betting on that race would be them doing it as a "Fixed Odds" option.

Interestingly, I just looked at the Fixed Odds Options for the Christchurch Casino NZ Cup.. Option 984 - No 41 is Red Cardinal at $31. I think you'd do your money cold if you backed it as highly unlikely to line up in the Melbourne Cup on Tuesday and then come across to NZ for it. (yes Empire Rose did it but she was coming "home" so to speak).

Pardon my ignorance here - but is it just the sheer size of the pools that makes it such a difficult thing? Why can't it be handled like other races where an emergency gets a run?? Just curious..

 

Tote cant handle more than 24 numbers Lloydie.

If there was no betting it wouldn't be a problem.
