Derby Day Competition Sat 2nd Mar - $500 must be won

57 posts in this topic

As the All Up Winx competition this weekend doesn't include a huge number of races to rack your brains on, I've decided to run a competition on Ellerslie Derby Day which you will need to rack your brains on.

The Prize

$500.00

The Rules:

- Pick one horse in each race at Ellerslie Derby Day this Saturday.

- You can choose one race to have NO BET (this is optional)

- Select how much EACH-WAY you want on it (Tote odds apply).

Must be a minimum of $10ew, there is no maximum EW amount but the Win and Place bet amounts must be identical.

- Competition picks close at 12.15pm Saturday. (time of the 1st race)

- If you have a late scratching, you can post a new selection and bet amount up until the specific race time, but if you don’t you’ll have nothing running for you in the race.

Now the twist - the winner won’t be the person who collects the most amount.!! The winner will be the person whose final total collected is CLOSEST TO $500. (it doesn’t matter if you’re under or over the $500 total, you just have to be closest).

In the unlikely event that we have 2 or more people with identical differences to the $500, then the winnings will be split.

Please post in this format:

Race      Horse Name       Bet Amount

(if you decide to have a race with no bet, just say NO BET)

And as my scoring won’t be anything elaborate, please post the horse name as easier for me and also easier for those to follow.

So put your thinking caps on and decide your strategy.

 

Good Luck.

Silver Sasanof already Scratched from Race 2 (Starting in Race 1)… so will use Showdown as your pick.

You definitely want $1,000 EW on all those horses (except Ferrando bet)??

Did you read the rules? 

Mr Sandpiper

Yep i'm pretty sure he did.

Basically what he is saying is that he is laying every selection other than Ferrando.  He's putting all his eggs in the Ferrando basket and picking roughies to get beaten in all the other races.

The $1,000 e/w is just a bit of showmanship - good on him.

and looks like he read them better than Ohokaman

Not so sure? Laying out 16000 on the rest is a probable loss, Ferrando bet at 70 ew will not cover that. Surely a loss at the end of the day?

Hi Ohoka,

Rules state that every race is to be an EW bet where the win and place bets have to be identical, Please re-evaluate the bets where you have picked only PLACE bets. If no reply I will change them to EW bets (i.e., Santa Caterina will be changed to $50 EW, and same with others).

Yeah probably but the objective is to collect as close to $500 as possible.  The amount you bet is not part of the scoring equation.

and my reference to Ohokaman is explained in Ponderosa's post above.
