If ten race meetings are not completed, this challenge shall be void.  If fewer race meetings are held than originally scheduled but exceed ten, then the prize money shall be pro-rated. By way of example, if only fifteen race-meetings are completed and twenty were scheduled, then the total prize money shall be pro-rated as 15/20 x R40 000 = R30 000.
  3. This Challenge is open to all grooms who attend to and look after racehorses which race at race meetings held at Hollywoodbets Greyville and Hollywoodbets Scottsville.
  4. This competition runs alongside the current grooms’ award, where the winning grooms will continue to receive R1 000 per race.
