Will there be any accountability for the purchasers of Kosciuszko tickets?

The 2KSKY Media machine runs ads simply saying that punters should buy a ticket without giving any credible reason to do so.

The purchase price of tickets purchased by 'individuals' should be refunded as a display of good faith.

Presumably the sale of tickets is aimed at country race clubs hoping that 'winning' will give them the right to share in the spoils of sponsoring a local contender --  arranging a tribal contingent to be 'on course' will only bolster the appearance of support for the other mountain race run on the day.

The K concept may not have long to go before it is abandoned -- the smart-set will be scheming to have a city-class horse or two smoked in to knock off the dough.

Mair ends up with egg all over his face again after the draw today  :lol:


Given he’s constant display of ignorance, guesswork and blatant lies you’d think he’d walk away from an industry that has already rejected his services.

2KSKY say some 215,000 'tickets' were purchased

........ facts are facts needing to be understood.............. consider it a lottery............ 14 'winners' have a potential payout of, say,  $500,000 for a $5 ticket for a single-ticket buyer......... that converts to a 1/15,000 chance ........  a minuscule probability of getting a ticket ........ but, compared to most lottery and lotto products .... is it a fair bet.

........... over and out to the master mathematicians.

My gut feel was 'no' -- and I do not believe RNSW should be permitted to run a lottery.

This nonsense will unfold.

Reality may be dawning

.................. on checking the T&C, it seems that the 'winner' with the first placed horse would have a maximum payout of some $250,000................. for one of a planned field of 250,000 tickets @ $5.

......... the 'sense' of buying a ticket is not at all clear ........... and that flows on to the thought that the T&C be recast so that it would be clearly sensible to enter a fair contest.............. the point should be to attract and build interest ..... not get the punters to pay twice ... when they buy a ticket and then when they place bets.


The minimum amount payable to a successful Sweep Winner is $2,975.However, Racing NSW estimates that the total value of prizes for ‘Slot Winners’ will range from between $232,900 for the winner whose horse finishes first to $3,000 for the winner whose horse finishes last.

A headline with no meaning:  The Kosciuszko - World's Richest Country Race

 Are acceptors from Canberra in low-way races normally relegated as 'emergency' starters?

If so --what is the reason for that?

Canberra’s Matt Dale is set to have a runner in the $1.3 million feature but no horse has been finalised yet --Notation, Coup De Main and Superstar Bob are expected to be potential options to fill the slot.

Still no mention of Danny Williams neddy Floki.

I’m not surprised you’re unaware that the very talented Floki is racing tomorrow

Much easier for you to bitch and moan than look at the form guide
