“Lose to Win” - One day competition, Saturday 4 December - Entry Thread

Recommended Posts

“Lose to Win” Entry thread - One day competition, Saturday 4 December.

The rules are pretty simple, pick 1 horse in each race from the whole card at Matamata and Trentham that you think will LOSE…. so basically a Losers Get Laid type comp.

The Scoring:

We simply divide $100 by the closing price of your selection on the NZ tote.

(e.g.. if your selection is paying $3.40 and it DOESN’T WIN, your points will be $100 divided by $3.40 = 29.41 points.

If your selection happens to wins the race, you will receive a 50 point deduction.

You are allowed 4 Best Bets for the day where you will as usual get double points, however, if a BB selection wins the race then you will receive a 100 point deduction.

If you are unlucky enough to pick 4 winners throughout the day, you will be eliminated from the competition.

Comp closes: 12.15pm Saturday.

Please post in the race order shown with the horse number. (a copy and paste would be good).

SCRATCHINGS: If you have a Scratching, you can post a new selection up until close-off time (12.15pm). If you do not post a new selection or if your horse is late scratched you will receive 5 points for that race (or 10 points if it’s a BB race).

All entries MUST follow the above format incorrectly formatted entries will not be accepted.

The prizes sponsored by Scooby and indirectly by Mr_Gee (Beaudz Well) and Kloppite (Capo Strada) are:

1st  - $350

2nd - $100

3rd – $50

Winners to have an EW bet on a single horse (Tote odds) with 50% of the winnings to be retained for future comps.

Good Luck and don’t forget your 4 BB’s

So the idea here is to have short priced favourites you pick  lose to stand the best chance of getting maximum points as such ?,  am I correct, picking losers is something I'm rather good at.

Yeah that's right Mike. But if that short priced favorite wins the race you get a 50 point deduction and lose 1 life... so decide your strategy....

Judging from past comps.everyone will go into 2 groups.One group will pick all favourites and cross their fingers while the other group will pick double digit

priced horses and wait for the others to progressively drop out
