NEW Competition & Cash Prize

81 posts in this topic

I thought I would have a wee bash at my own competition for those that want some interest over the next weekend/s racing.

I  will put up a $500.00 betting voucher as the prize

 

Manawatu looks like it will attract some good fields so I propose a competition that starts on Saturday it may well finish on Saturday but i am willing to let it roll over for 3 weeks until we have a winner/s.

This week will consist of  5 races (3 NZ & 2 OZ)and you will be required to pick

The winner of 2 races 

A  place getter in 2 races 

The quinella in 1 race (you will box 3 runners for this)

Any scratchings after posting you will go to the next runner in the field.

If no winner/s the first week the comp will be 4 (2NZ &2 OZ )races the next week 

2 winners

2 Placegetters

.

Should a 3rd week be required it will be 5 (2NZ & 3OZ) races nominated and whoever gets the most winners and highest  WIN dividend total will get the prize.

sounds fun. and you will pick the 5 races or we would?

Oh sorry as that may have been unclear.

I will nominate the races  but i will be sensible and not make them 2000 mtr maidens , for the quinella option I will nominate a race with no more than 12 starters, no point in making it unwinnable and  really difficult as it is terminating.

Good on you YT, and I see you have taken on board my and N1MUE's mildly critical comments about having a format, whereby the comp prize must ultimately be won

Good luck with running it

Sorry to burst your little alien green bubble Hesi but the format is actually nothing to do with previous comments.

I just decided to run a terminating comp because as you know I stated  I had $500.00 to offer up and decided to put my money where my mouth was. 

So can we please just let this thread/comp run along so contributors can just have some fun & friendly banter, and the chance of getting a voucher.

Great Comp and extremely generous YT. 

After winning Gruff’s one last week I’m confident  of a repeat :ph34r:

Long way to go yet with weather and possible track conditions and so on Col but we will no doubt get updates from cafe'ers tomorrow & Wednesday.

Just as an aside would the southern contributors like one of the Riverton races included in the 3 NZ options?

Riverton have a couple there that look a possible if you southerners like.

I will be posting the 5 target races on Wenesday evening so people can do their preliminary study!.

just to clarify I think that the previous weeks comps were actually winnable ,  but reading my comment it did not read like that as I was referring to it would be churlish of me to pick the full maiden fields for this comp.

good idea to include one from here in the south.  Or you could make them all down here :-)

After your sterling effort on the 10th of March at Ellerslie I have no doubt you are all over NZ racing regardless of where it is!!.

been a decent wee run actually but as we all know you can have a shocker at anytime (or several) !

Funnily enough I was driving round your neck of the wood last night dropping my daughter off at Mt Smart and back to hotel at airport  and picking up again later last night. Should have popped in for a cuppa !

Clarification needed. In picking the winner is that from the 3 picks as per quinella or are the two separate?

5 races in total

2 races you will be required to pick the winner

2 races you will be required to pick a place getter

1 race you will pick (box) 3 runners to run the quinella.

does that clarify it for you?, apologies if it was unclear.
