Spring Stakes Supremo Comp


Entry is open to all Race Cafe members.

The comp will run from Saturday August 4 to Saturday November 10.

The rules are very simple so everyone can understand and participate.

Competitors are required to select one horse per race in every Stakes race run in NZ and every Group race in Australia during the duration of the comp. Some weeks there will only be a couple of races but later there could be a dozen or more.



1. Select one horse per scheduled race in the comp.

2. If the horse returns a dividend you will be credited with the the NZ TAB/Supertab dividend as currency e.g. $5.20 win and $2.30 place will represent a return of $7.50 for the selector. 

3. Group 3 races will be eligible for double points, Group 2 races for triple points and Group 1 races will have their return multiplied by 5.

4. All selections must be posted before the first race on any day in which the comp is run..

5. If your selection is scratched you may post a replacement before the first comp race on any day in which the comp is run. This must be as a new post and not an edit of your original selection post.

6. If you do not post a replacement selection for a scratched horse then your selection will revert to the TAB sub but not be eligible for double, triple or x 5 bonus unless it is a late scratching.

7. You can enter the comp at any time providing you abide by Rule 4. If you miss a day you may continue in the comp but obviously you would not earn any points for days or races missed.

8. My decision will be final in the event of any dispute.

9. The winner will be the competitor who accumulates the most points during the duration of the comp.

10. In the event of a tie on points, a play-off on Saturday November 17 will decide the winner.

11. Please post your entries as numbers. You may post names of horses but this is optional. No numbers, no entry.

12. Please do not post subs/reserves or they will be ignored. If your selection is scratched before the closing time of the first comp race of the day then you may post a replacement in a new post. Late scratchings will always be replaced by the TAB sub.


I will not always provide race-by-race updates but a summary of results will be published on the results thread at the conclusion of each day. I am very grateful to  Scooby for putting up such an incredible prize for this competition which he will announce on here shortly.

Good luck to all participants !
