The 2021 Spring Racing Competition will start on August 21 and will run to November 13.

Each weekend (with a few exemptions) there will be 5 black-type (or “special” races) nominated.  In a few cases there will be a double set of nominated races. There will also be a set of races on Cup Day and on Oaks day.

Selections are to be posted at any time up to when the horses jump. It is okay to alter selections up to five minutes before official jump-time.

There will be a dummy competitor (Kitty) to cover for late scratchings, late entry into the competition and a missing day’s selections from a regular competitor.  Kitty’s selection for any race is the horse carrying the highest-numbered saddlecloth.

The points for each day is based on a $10 x $10 each way bet on each of the selections. The NSW TAB will be used to tot up the 'winnings". Points will be allocated so that the competitor with the least “winnings” gets 1 point, the second lowest gets 2 points and so on.  The best three competitors get bonus points of 3 (top), 2 (next) and 1 (next).  So, if there were 8 competitors the points would be 11, 9, 7, 5,4,3,2,1.

I will also keep a record of stake money won by nominated horses, the number of winners and the number of placed  horses selected by competitors.

Fours has offered a prize of a shared bet for the leader on Melbourne Cup Day :clap2:,  Any other offer of prizes are welcome,

The list of the nominated races (which will show the weekends with double rounds) are given in a post on the first page..

All I have to do is look up the winners for 2001 before anyone else.

Well spotted :)
I'm sure there will be many more slips from this end as the competition goes on.
I'll fix the error now and mystify those reading your apt comment.

That's one more of the many slips I will make. ;)

Everest was certainly meant to be on the list.  I'll be making the necessary change(s) in the morning.

I'm not questioning the Everest being used BUT it is not a black type race and therefore Brian would have been entitled to tell PP to pull his head in.  :biggrin:   :biggrin:

 5 black-type (or “special” races)

Races like the Everest and the Golden Eagle fall into the "special" group. The Invitation is another race of that ilk.

By the way I really appreciate you guys picking up the flaws and stumbles that I make. :thumbsup:

No prizes?

I will give a $20 share in a Big6 on MC day - probably VICTAB. Probably entitle winner to around 20% of my return.

Fours
ps you get no say in the selections but cant argue with the price.
ps obviously the winner prior to the day of the MC being run.
