In addition, there shall be a bonus prize of R1 000 000 awarded to any player who tips every winner on the card at Hollywoodbets Greyville on 25 July 2020.  A consolation prize shall be offered if no bonus prize is won.  This prize of R50 000 will be paid to the highest points scoring player/s who selected nine winners and selected the second to fourth placed finisher in the other race.  Dead-heat rules will apply for both the bonus and consolation prizes.  All 10 races must run for these prizes to be awarded.

Prize money will be paid into the winners’ Hollywoodbets or Gold Circle TabGold accounts only.  There are no conditions applicable to this payment and funds may be withdrawn or used for betting at the discretion of the player.  Dead-heat rules apply to all place positions.

Every point counts!  Points are allocated according to the official finishing position of each horse in the race.  The number of points on offer is dependent on the numbers of horses participating (official runners) in the race.

Points are awarded in accordance with the horses’ finishing positions i.e. in a 10-horse field, the winner will be awarded 10 points, 2nd 9 points and so on with the last horse being awarded 1 point.  Similarly, in a 16-horse field, the winner will be awarded 16 points and the last horse just a single point.

In addition, points will be awarded according to the price of the winner only.  The winning selection will get a bonus of the Hollywoodbets starting price.  If the winner of a 12-horse race starts at 12.5/1 (13.5) then the punters selecting the horse will be awarded 25.5 points (being 12 plus an additional 13.5 points for the starting price).

Further, additional points will be awarded according to players who select the winners of black-type races.  These are Grade 1, Grade 2, Grade 3 and Listed races.  There are 7 scheduled black type races on the day. The winning selection will get a bonus of double the Hollywoodbets starting price.  If the winner of a 12-horse race starts at 10/1 (11) then the punters selecting the horse will be awarded 34 points (being 12 plus an additional 11 points for the starting price, plus 11 points for the black-type race).

A horse/jockey combination must be declared a runner in the race to be awarded any points.
Where a dead-heat is declared for any finishing position, then dead-heat rules will apply and the contestants will each receive half of the aggregated points on offer.  So, for example, a dead-heat for 3rd and 4th in the 10-horse race will see the affected horses each being awarded 7.5 points ((8+7)/2).
Cumulative points awarded will be updated after each race.

Failure to make selections for a race meeting will result in zero points.

Any selection of a scratching will be assigned the official tote favourite for the race.  In the event there are dual tote favourites in a race, the highest placed finisher (of the tote favourites) will be assigned to the scratching.

A horse disqualified after having run a race will be deemed to have run last and will earn one point, with each horse that finished behind it being promoted.

Change of venue – if the venue changes (before 11 am on race day) then punters will have the option to retain their original selection or create new selections on a new selection grid.  Where no new selections are made, the original selections will remain as valid selections.

If the race meeting is rescheduled from its original date to another day it shall be re-opened for selections prior to the rescheduled date.  The original selections shall be retained should they not be revised.
