Racing Terms and Conditions

General

Racing

1. Sportsbet may cancel wagers where it reasonably suspects that the Member or associates have manipulated a state totalisator pool.
2. Sportsbet may place a limit on the payout (final odds) where there is reasonable suspicion of pool manipulation having occurred (e.g. Payout no greater than 100% higher than the next best Australian tote).
3.Where there are 8 or more runners in a race, a place shall be paid on first, second and third places. If you wagered on a fixed PLACE bet when the field had 8 or more runners and the field later reduced to 7 or less runners, first, second and third places will be paid, but deductions may apply.
4.Where there are 7, 6 or 5 runners in a race, a place shall be paid on first and second places only.
5. Where there are less than 5 runners in a race, all betting shall be Win only.
6. If the runner is scratched, the stake will be refunded.
7. NSW and VIC bet requirements: From 9am (or 2pm for a night meeting), on the day of any NSW or VIC thoroughbred race, Sportsbet is required to lay a bet to win, on any one fixed odds bet (for the fixed odds displayed), a minimum of $2000 for a win and $800 for a place for metropolitan races and a minimum of $1000 for a win and $400 for a place for non-metropolitan races. Sportsbet can reduce the stake of any each way bet which has a win and/or place stake which will would result in a return by Sportsbet above these thresholds. In this case the win and place stake will be reduced equally. In the event of an official price fluctuation or Sportsbet price fluctuation changing, Sportsbet is not compelled to accept any bet at the pre-changed price.
8. In the event of a horse or greyhound being withdrawn LATE by order of the stewards, all bets will be paid as stewards direct, including deductions on remaining runners.
9. Bets will be settled as per the official decision of Stewards on raceday. Where a horse/dog is subsequently disqualified or placings amended at a later date, for any reason, the official result as declared by Stewards on the day of the race will stand.

Live Racing

Live Racing means betting that takes place while an event is in progress. In addition to the rest of these Terms of Use, the following rules apply to Live Racing:
1. Betting on Live Racing is only available via the Sportsbet Website.
2. Live Racing markets are strictly win only markets.
3. Bets placed on Live Racing markets will be listed in your account history as the price type ‘Live Fixed Win.’
4. Deductions may apply on Live Racing markets when any individual selection(s) is declared a non-runner. However, if the horse declared a non-runner is not individually listed but included under ‘The Field’ option no deductions will apply to winning bets.
5. We reserve the right to void any part of any, or all, Bets on any Live Racing event that is not completed (i.e. abandoned, postponed.)
6. Where a blatant or palpable error is made in transmission on any event on which we have purported to offer Live Betting, Bets may be settled at the correct price at the time at which the Bet was placed.
7. Where we have reason to believe that a Bet is placed after the outcome of an event is known, we reserve the right to void the Bet.
8. Sportsbet shall not be liable for any interruptions to televised coverage or connection errors experienced by the customer. Furthermore, Sportsbet accepts no responsibility for races described as ‘live’ by any broadcasters that may actually be delayed or pre-recorded. In the result of an interruption to the broadcast all Live Racing markets will be suspended but any bets already placed will stand.
9. If a market is not scheduled to offer Live Racing but Sportsbet fails to suspend the market at the relevant time, then all bets accepted after the official ‘off’ time will be void. The Live Racing market is signified by the yellow ‘BL’ icon visible in the racecard.
10. Protest Payouts do not apply to Live Racing Bets, and bets will be settled on official placings.

Abandoned/Postponed and Transferred meetings

1.1 Subject to Rule 1.2, if a meeting is abandoned, transferred to another venue/track (including transferring to a different track at the same venue) or postponed to another date, single bets are void and wagers will be refunded. Affected Multi Bets will be recalculated excluding that event or leg.

1.2 Where a meeting is postponed and rescheduled to take place at the same venue within 48 hours of the original scheduled start time of the meeting, all bets stand as if the meeting was not postponed.

1.2.1 If scratchings are reinstated due to a postponed meeting at the same venue then all bets are void

1.3 Regardless of whether a ' Futures event (All in betting) ' has been abandoned, postponed or transferred from the original date, all bets stand until the completion of the event.

1.4 In the unlikely event of an AUS/NZ race that is inadvertently offered but not being covered with a Win & Place pool from the three major Australian TABs (NSW, VIC, Tatts), we reserve the right to cancel all bets on the race.

 

Deductions

2.1 How to Calculate Deductions
E.g.; If you have $10 to win on a 7.00 winner - and total win deductions are 13c in the dollar:
• This means you will receive 87c in every dollar of the Face Value of the ticket.
• Face Value: $10 x 7.00 = $70.
• Reduced Face Value: $70 x .87c = $60.90
• Less your $10 outlay leaves a win profit of $50.90.
2.2 Schedule of deductions:

Schedule of deductions are a guide only. Actual deductions may differ from this schedule

For fixed odds exotics, the payout may be subject to deductions and deadheat rules as well as maximum payout limit(s) outlined in the Maximum Win Limits.
3. A Quinella is when two (2) runners are selected to place first and second in any order.

United Kingdom and Irish Racing

1. General settlement of bets
Horse racing bets are automatically settled on a double result basis unless otherwise stated or as detailed in the double result section herein.
Ante-post bets are settled on the Rules of Racing unless otherwise advertised. Where a result is amended after the weigh-in such an amendment will be ignored for settlement purposes. The advertised times of races, the runners, returns and results as published in the Racing Post (or the national press) will govern settlement of all bets, excepting errors and omissions. Unless otherwise provided for in these rules, all bets will be settled at starting price, with the place part of each-way bets settled as per place terms set out in these rules.
For overseas racing please refer to overseas racing section.
In the event of a walk-over named or unnamed selections will be void and treated as non-runners for settlement purposes.
Queries regarding errors should be made within 14 days of settlement of the bet. An each-way bet consists of one bet to win on the selection and one bet to place on the selection in accordance with the place terms for the event.
In single and accumulative bets on horse racing place terms will be determined by the actual number of runners that run in the race. In any race of fewer than five starters, all place money goes onto win. With the exception of ante-post bets, the below each-way terms for horse and greyhound racing events are settled on the actual number of runners which are deemed to have run in the race and not the number of initial declared runners:
1) Handicaps of more than 16 runners - 1/4 odds on first four places.
2) Handicaps of 12-15 runners - 1/4 odds on first three places.
3) All other races of more than 8 runners - 1/5 odds on first three places.
4) All races of 5-7 runners - 1/4 odds on first two places.
5) All races of less than 5 runners - Place money goes on to win.
Please note that win-only betting may only be available on selected races. The place terms displayed on our website supersede these rules. Place bets are not accepted unless at least an equal amount is invested to win.
Any place money inadvertently accepted in excess of the win stake will be void.
On occasion, place-only betting may be advertised for selected events and any bets placed will be valid in such a situation. For the purpose of settlement, each-way accumulative bets are settled win-to-win and place-to-place.
In a dead heat, the stake money on a selection is divided by the number of runners involved in the dead heat. The full odds are then paid to the divided stake with the remainder of the stake money being lost.
When a selection is made void or does not run, then for single bets the stake will be returned. In accumulative bets the stake will run on to the remaining selection(s) with a double becoming a single and so on up.

2. Abandonments/postponements/re-run races
If a race programme is abandoned or postponed bets will be void.
However, on occasions when a major race is postponed we reserve the right to advertise and apply the following: Bets accepted after 10am on the day of the overnight declarations will stand until that race is run, so long as the overnight declarations stand, unless cancelled by prior mutual agreement.
If races are set back in time on a day because of the weather, settlement of all bets will be ruled by the original advertised times.
If a race is re-run, betting in the first race will rule settlement, and horses which ran in the first race but did not start in the second will be considered losers.

3. Each-way betting
Each-way accumulative bets are settled win-to-win and place-to-place. In any race reduced to fewer than five starters, each-way bets will be taken as 'all-to-win' given that there are no places available.
In accumulative wagers, the bet reverts to normal place odds according to the number of runners in each race 'place bets' are not accepted unless at least an equal amount is invested to win, with the exceptions being Tote betting and on the occasions that we offer 'place only' Betting on individual races as a special offer.
Where there is excess place money over win money in each-way bets, then that part of the bet will be void, win or lose. When special place betting is offered for a race, this will rule settlement for all place bets on that race.
The following governs settlement of the place part of each-way bets:
Handicaps of 16 or more runners: 1/4 odds for the first four places
Handicaps of 12-15 runners: 1/4 odds for the first three places
All other races of 8 or more runners: 1/5 odds for the first three places
All races of 5, 6 or 7 runners: 1/4 odds for the first two places
All races of less than 5 runners: all place stakes will be treated as win stakes.
For overseas racing where we pay pari-mutuel returns the each way terms will be as determined by the local pari-mutuel rules.

4. Favourites
Starting price bets will be accepted each-way for first favourites, win-only for second favourites, and each-way for first favourites only in greyhound racing.
The favourite is the selection quoted in the official starting price returns of the State Official Price at the shortest odds. The second favourite is the horse quoted at the next shortest odds. If two horses are quoted at the same odds and these odds are shorter than those quoted against any other horses, then these two are equal first favourite and equal second favourite. If two or more co-favourites are thus selected, the stake will be divided equally between them.
When a returned favourite does not come under starter's orders and is withdrawn, then that unnamed favourite will be treated as a non-runner with bets on the second favourite settled on the second favourite. The only exceptions to this provision are speciality bets such as Jackpot or Placepot bets where, if there is a withdrawn favourite, the next lowest priced horse is the one taken as to substitute for a non-runner that under the rules has to be replaced by the 'favourite'

5. Double result
Double result is only applicable to horse racing in Ireland and the UK and overseas meetings where SIS return an industry SP.
Double result means if your horse is first past the post you get paid, however, should your horse be awarded the race or promoted to a place, as a result of a stewards enquiry or an objection which is announced before the 'weigh in' or 'winner alright', we will still pay you.
Double result does not apply to the following bets or circumstances:
1.) All ante-post bets.
2.) Bets which rely on Tote dividends ie. Jackpots, Placepots etc which are settled on the Rules of Racing.
3.) 'Distance specials' which are settled on a Rules of Racing basis only.
4.) Any horse disqualified for taking the wrong course or for carrying an incorrect weight.
5.) Races which are declared void.
6.) Where there is an official correction to the result by the judge or SIS prior to the 'weigh in' and any races which are declared void before the 'weigh in' for which Rules of Racing will apply.
7.) All bets on horse racing outside of South Africa, Ireland, and the UK, where an industry SP is not returned, are settled on a Rules Of Racing basis only.
8.) All bets placed on Betting in Running markets will be settled on a Rules of Racing basis only.
9.) We offer Double Result on Place Betting, Betting Without Favourite, Fallers Insurance & all Cash Back Markets.

6. Ante-post
All racing ante-post bets are accepted and settled on a Rules of Racing basis only.
Ante-post bets are accepted at quoted prices, up to and including the day prior to the event, on the basis of all in, run or not, entered or not .Therefore selections not taking part in the race/event concerned are losers.
Ante-post bets are those placed at our quoted prices on horses and prior to the race becoming classed as 'day of event' (day of event is a term used to describe the time at which overnight declarations are made, usually 10am on the day preceding the race (or two days for certain Group 1 races) for horse racing and the day of the race for greyhounds.)
All bets placed after the overnight declaration stage are settled in accordance with our early prices/day of race rules.
In line with principals laid down by Tattersalls Rules of Racing, ante-post bets will be void under the following circumstances, otherwise bets stand:
1.) If the race is abandoned or declared void.
2.) If the venue of the race is altered or postponed to a later date at a different track.
3.) If the race is postponed to a later date at the same track with entries totally reopened bets placed after the initial entries are void, but bets placed prior to the initial entry stage will stand. All bets will stand if a race is postponed to later date at the same track with the same entries, whether the bet was placed before or after the initial entries stage.
4.) If the horse is balloted out or eliminated under Jockey Club rules single bets will be void. In any such cases, accumulative ante-post bets will stand on the remaining legs, at the prices laid on the selections in those races, with a double becoming a single, a treble becoming a double, etc.
5.) In the event of horses being withdrawn under Jockey Club/Turf Club rules, to limit the number of entries taken part, these horses shall be void. The liability of a layer against horses remaining will be reduced on both win and place parts of such bets, in accordance with the rate to be announced before the race by Tattersalls Committee, dependant on the odds currently available against the withdrawn horses at the time of withdrawal. All bets are executed at the price ruling at the time of handing in of the bet. We reserve the right to correct any palpable error. Win doubles, trebles, etc are calculated at full accumulative odds. Each-way doubles and trebles etc. are settled win-to-win, place-to-place, and for the place part of such bets, the fractional odds pertaining at the time of acceptance. Place only bets, conditional bets and forecast bets are not accepted ante-post. When the same selection is backed to win two or more races/events in ante-post bets, special odds are applicable. These special odds will supersede the accumulative odds calculated from the individual event prices irrespective of the fact that the individual event prices may be endorsed on the slip. If special odds were not available, the stake will be divided equally as singles at the prices available at the time the bet was placed.

7. Non-runner no bet
Ante-post betting ceases at 10.30 am on the day of the overnight declaration stage and all bets placed after that stage will be 'non-runner no bet', ie. your bet stake will be refunded if your horse fails to compete. Rule 46.8 may apply (Tattersalls Rule 4).

8. Late withdrawals - UK Tattersalls Rule 4
In all horse races, excluding ante-post bets, if a horse is withdrawn, not under starter's orders, bets will be settled in accordance with Tattersalls Rule 4(c), which says that backers of the withdrawn horse will have their stakes refunded.
When there has not been time for the market to reform, deductions are made from winnings (exclusive of stake) according to the table below.
In cases of more than one withdrawal in a race, the total deduction will not exceed 0.90c in $1.00.
When there has been time to reform the market, deductions will apply only to bets at board prices struck prior to the announcement of the withdrawal.

The above scale will also apply in the case of non-runners in early price races and will be used for other events where we specifically advertise, either in these rules or at the event itself that Tattersalls Rule 4 (abbreviated to Rule 4) may apply.
For withdrawals relating to ante-post, advertised early prices and greyhounds please refer to the appropriate section.

9. Reserves
Some races contain reserves, who may or may not be priced in our early prices lists. The finishing positions of any of these reserves will count whether they are priced or not.
The price of any reserves which run, will be offset against any Rule 4 deduction applicable from the non-runner(s.)

10. No official SP returned (UK and Ireland)
Selections in races where no official SPs are returned from racecourses in the UK or Ireland will be settled at the industry SP (if returned.)
If no official SP or industry SP is returned bets will be settled as following:
All bets where no price is taken (including forecasts, tricasts and unnamed favourites) will be settled at the closing 'show' prices offered by Paddy Power.
Where no 'show' prices are displayed for horse racing, bets will be settled at the appropriate Tote returns and all greyhound racing bets will be void.
Bets on unnamed favourites and second favourites will stand for races where an official or industry SP is returned, but will be void if neither SP is returned.
Note: For Tote Placepot/Quadpot bets - when no official SP is returned and an industry SP is returned in its place, Tote bets on unnamed favourites are settled on the Tote favourite and not the industry SP favourite.

11. Taking a price - advertised early prices
Bets accepted at our advertised prices after 9am on the day of the overnight declarations are not ante-post bets and will be settled in accordance with the terms advertised.
Prices advertised for 'early price' races are available subject to fluctuation up to the time as displayed in our offices (normally 20 minutes before the race 'off time' for UK races and 30 minutes for Irish races) or up to 'first show.'
In the event of a horse being withdrawn, not under starter's orders, stakes on that selection will be returned. Bets for the remaining horses in that race will be subject to a deduction in accordance with Tattersall's Rule 4 (c), based on the 'early price' of the withdrawn horse at the time of withdrawal (see table above.)
Should any greyhound be withdrawn from an advertised 'early price' greyhound race all bets on that race shall be settled at starting price.

12. Show/screen prices
Should a horse be withdrawn, and where Tattersall's Rule 4(c) would apply, no board prices may be laid after the withdrawal unless the market has reformed. Any such bets laid in error will be settled at SP or the next immediate price offered after withdrawal, whichever is the greater.
Should any greyhound be withdrawn all bets placed at a show price prior to withdrawal on that race will be settled at starting price.

13. Forecasts
These can be accessed using the ' Exacta ' betting button on the Sportsbet betting page
Subject to the following rules, we accept forecast singles, doubles and trebles as part of our normal business. Any forecast accumulators accepted in error, which do not comply to the format and conditions above, will be settled as forecast trebles, with the stake involved being equally split over the number of trebles available.
Forecast bets are settled from the returns declared by the CSF or BAGS/BEGS F/C. Any bonus for forecast doubles or trebles is added to the calculated total return, i.e. excluding any leg by leg bonus.
Forecast bets are void when: one of the selections does not run, less than three runners take part in the event, or you select unnamed favourites. If an unnamed favourite appears among the named selections, only that part of your bet including the unnamed favourite is void.
If for any reason, no CSF or BAGS/BEGS forecast is returned, bets will be settled by reference to the NSL Straight Forecast Chart.
In the event of a selection finishing alone, a forecast dividend with any other runner will be declared.

14. Tricasts
These can be accessed using the ' Trifecta ' betting button on the Sportsbet betting page)
Tricast bets, in which selections must finish first, second and third in the correct order in specified races are accepted in single bets only. Stakes for any tricast double, treble, etc accepted in error will be divided equally to cover each tricast race in tricast singles only.
Horse and greyhound (BAGS/BEGS) tricasts are only accepted on races for which a computer tricast dividend is declared. Any tricasts accepted for races which no tricast dividend is declared will be settled as computerised straight forecasts on the selections nominated to finish first and second, with the selection for third place discounted.
Any tricast which contains an unnamed favourite, that selection will be settled as a non-runner.
Tricasts will be settled in accordance with the official computerised return.
Should a tricast include a non-runner, the total stake will be invested as a computerised straight forecast on the remaining two selections in the order selected. In the case of combination tricasts the total stake will be invested as a reversed straight forecast on the remaining two selections.
If less than three horses finish in a tricast race, a dividend will be declared on those that finish.
Should a tricast include two non-runners, the bet will be void.
Examples of the above
i) Full cover (24 bets) selections A, B, C, D with D as a non-runner is settled in the following manner: Full cover tricast A, B, C = 6 bets full cover forecast (3 x stake unit) A, B, C = 18 bets
ii) The same bet but with C and D as non-runners is settled as following: Full cover forecast (6 x stake unit) A,B = 12 bets plus 12 Single bets void.

15. Rules for special offers (Sportsbet daily specials - Special win doubles, trebles etc)
If the SP return is greater than the special advertised price for win doubles, trebles etc - we pay SP. (This does not apply to any specials including a 'placed' selection.)
In the event of any non-runner(s) in any of the races from which the above have been selected we reserve the right to revert the bet to SP.
'Jockey specials' stand irrespective of who actually rides the named selections in the special. Where any of the selections included in the special are non-runners, the bet reverts to SP settlement, with an accumulator settled as a treble and a treble settled as a double etc.
In the event of any non-runners in the races from which a place only selection has been nominated, our normal place betting terms will automatically apply, i.e. bets revert to normal place terms according to the number of runners in each race as detailed under each-way betting. For example, if we advertise a horse to be placed in the first four, and due to non-runners the field is reduced to less than 16 runners, it will automatically become the first three places only etc.

16. Guaranteed odds race/Odds in your favour
Where we offer a 'guaranteed odds race' if you take the early advertised price on this race and the starting price (SP) is greater - we pay SP.
Please note this offer applies to early prices only and does not apply to show/screen prices.

17. Winning distance / How far will it win by
Betting on the winning distance will be on races only as displayed.
The winning distance will be that margin, as officially announced between the winning horse and the second.
All winning distance bets are settled on a first past the post basis only, i.e. double result does not apply.
In the event of a withdrawal resulting in a Rule 4 of 10c or greater in a race where we offer distance betting the Rule 4 amount will be split between the number of distance options.

Betting without
Where we offer prices on an event without a nominated selection, for settlement purposes the finishing position of the 'without' selection will be ignored.
Any each-way terms advertised are settled on the actual number of runners who take part in the race, excluding the 'without' selection.

18. Nominate horses to finish the course etc.
All bets are settled in accordance with the official returns in the Racing Post (excluding errors), or in its absence the national press.

19. Special win and/or place multiples
Where we quote a price for two or more specified selections in a win or place multiple, settlement will revert to SP if there is a dead heat in any leg of the bet.

20. Horse match betting
Where we quote special match betting, all bets are settled Rules of Racing according to the official returns in the following days Racing Post.
Bets are settled on the best finishing position.
In the event of both runners failing to complete the course - bets are settled on 'furthest to complete' according to the official result.

21. Combined winning distances for a meeting
Distances for each race meeting are settled on a 'first past the post' basis. If any of the scheduled races at a meeting are not run, bets are void unless the maximum quote has been attained.
The maximum winning distance per race for a flat race is 12 lengths while a National Hunt race is 30 lengths. This also applies should only one horse complete the race.
Distances are as follows:
Nose - 0.05
Short Head: 0.1
Head: 0.2
Neck: 0.3

How many of the selected horses will win their respective races today? If any of the selected horses are non-runners all bets are void unless the maximum quote has already been attained.

24. Winning favourites

If neither an official SP nor industry SP is returned on any of the included races - all bets on this market are void.

25. Place betting only
In the event of a horse being withdrawn, not under starter's orders, stakes on that selection will be returned.

Bets for the remaining horses in the race will be subject to a deduction in accordance with Tattersall's R4(c) based on the Win price of the withdrawn horse(s) at the time of withdrawal, (see Tattersall's R4 table under Horse Racing rules.) E.g. Horse X priced at 4/1 in the win market and 11/4 in the "Faller Insurance" market is withdrawn then a R4 deduction of 20c based on the 4/1 Win price shall apply to the "Faller Insurance" market.
Refunded bets will be settled as soon as possible but in some cases may take up to an hour.
Where disputes arise results will be taken from www.sportinglife.com
Double Result concession does apply to this market.

28. Jockey performance
Points are awarded for jockey performance as follows: Win - 25pts 2nd - 10pts 3rd - 5pts.
If any of the jockey's intended rides are non-runners, points will be awarded as follows:
Evens or shorter - 15pts
$2.10 to $4.50 - 10pts
$5 to $9 - 5pts
$10 or more - 0pts
The price used will be the Sportsbet early price at time of confirmation of non-runner. The last show price will be used if horse is withdrawn during the show.
If it is a race without early prices and before first show the predicted SP in the Racing Post shall be used.
In the event of a walkover points will be settled by the same method as if the jockey's horse was a non-runner.
Other than a walkover the number of runners in a race does not affect the points awarded e.g. In a 3 runner race third place gets 5 points.
If a jockey fails to ride any of his intended mounts but the horse does run, the horse's performance does count towards the points total for the jockey.

29. Favourite's performance
Predict the performance of the starting price favourites at a specific meeting.
Points are awarded on the following basis: Winner = 25, Second = 10, Third = 5. Favourites finishing lower than third are awarded 0 points.If there are joint/co favourites, then the runner with the lowest racecard number is deemed favourite for the purpose of this market.
In the event of no starting price being returned, the favourite will be the runner with the lowest price in the betting forecast published in the Racing Post.
In the event of a dead heat for any placing, points for these runners will be added together and divided equally between the number of positions, e.g. dead-heat for second place involving the favourite = (10+5)/2 = 7.5 points. If any of the scheduled races at a meeting are not run, then all bets are void unless the maximum quote is reached.
If the favourite is withdrawn at the start of the race and no new market is formed, points will be awarded dependant on the price of the favourite at the time of the withdrawal: Evens or shorter = 15, 11/10 to 9/2 = 10, 5/1 or bigger = 5.

30. Walkovers
Walkovers will be excluded from all markets unless created by the withdrawal of a horse after we have begun quoting a market concerning the race in question, in which case the make-ups will be as follows:
Racecard numbers: Number of horse walking over, Doubled Favourite: 20 points, Starting Price: 1 point.
Distances: (i) Flat: 5 lengths (ii) National Hunt: 12 lengths
In the event of a walkover all Ante-Post bets on the event will be void.
