How do the Favourite Numbers win?

The Favourite Numbers, 1 through 30, are randomly allocated by the TABtouch system to a group of forty races due to be run on the Wednesday and Saturday. The remaining 10 races become the list of substitute races.

If the TABtouch favourite in the corresponding Tote Win pool wins the race, the Favourite Number allocated to that race is a winning number.


Scratchings

If the favourite in a race is scratched, the new favourite will be the runner with the next highest amount invested upon it in the corresponding Tote Win pool.


Dead Heats

In the case of the favourite dead heating for first, the number allocated to that race is classified as a winning number.


Abandoned and Postponed Races

If a race is abandoned or postponed, then the Favourite Number allocated to it is reallocated to the first available race from the list of substitute races. It is possible that this race may have already been run.


Carryovers

If there are less than seven winning Favourite Numbers or if no one selects seven winning numbers, then half the payout pool jackpots to the next corresponding pool and the other half is paid to those with the next highest amount of winning Favourite Numbers. Systems entries receive multiple dividends.


Commission Rate

Favourite Numbers pools are subject to a commission rate of 25%.
