The Auction

To determine ownership, a horse will be drawn first then a raffle ticket drawn next.  The person whose ticket is drawn becomes the owner of this horse. This horse will then be auctioned.  The owner will either receive 50% of what the horse is auctioned for or, if the owner of the horse would like to keep it and they are the highest bidder, the owner will only pay 50% of their final bid. If a raffle winner is not present at the time of the auction, they will still receive 50% of what their horse was sold for at auction.

The Prize Pool

The prize pool will consist of the proceeds of all raffle ticket sales and proceeds from the auction.

Five percent (10%) of the prize money will be donated to the Club.  The remainder of the prize money will then be allocated as follows:

1st      50%

2nd      20%

3rd     10%

Winners will be determined by the official placings as declared by the TAB.

If there are any scratchings after the auction is finalised, there will be no refunds on raffle tickets or auction sales.

No correspondence will be entered into.
