What is a First 4?

A First 4 consists of selecting four runners to place first, second, third and then a fourth in the correct order. You can select as many runners as you want and make it a boxed First 4 bet, or even pick a standout for any of the 4 positions.

What Tote Dividend do you pay on First 4s?

Unless otherwise specified, Sportsbet First Four payouts are based on the winning combinations as declared by Super-TAB.

What happens if one of my runners is scratched?

If one of the selected runners in a First 4 bet is declared a 'non-runner' or is scratched after the wager is confirmed, wagers will be refunded on every combination which includes the scratched runner and the wager will be re-calculated without the scratched runner.

What happens if there is a Dead Heat (Draw)?

In the event of a Dead Heat combination in the first 4 place getters, there will be as many dividends as there are correct order combinations as declared Super TAB.
