When do I have to submit my selections?
Your selections must be submitted before the jump of the first race of the Racing Hotshot Jackpot day. Once the first race commences, you will be unable to edit any selections.

There will be no prize for that day.
Can I change my selections?
Your selections can be changed up until the first race jumps. After that, your selections are locked in for the night.
If the race start time occurs whilst changing your selections, your original predictions will be your entry.
What if my selection is scratched?
Don’t worry, you’re still in! To keep you in the hunt for the cash, if your horse is scratched after selections have been locked in, you will automatically get the favourite (Sportsbet fixed odds) in that race (at the time of jump). The same will happen to every race where your horse is scratched.
You also have up to the start of the first race to change any selections.
What happens if my selection is scratched and there is 2 horses that are equal favourites?
Should there be two equal favourites, the automatic selection will be in favour of the horse with the lowest saddle cloth number (Please note: This is not barrier).

In the event that one of the 6 races or the entire meet is abandoned, the competition will be postponed/cancelled for that week. We require all 6 races need to be run in order for the competition to be considered eligible.
