Onder voorbehoud van Social Distancing regels
Helaas is zijn de races wegens COVID alleen nog toegankelijk voor members. Zodra het mogelijk is zullen we dit event weer op de kalender zetten.
Altijd lekker om even de week door te breken in Happy Valley en te genieten van het spektakel tijdens de horse races. Je kunt ons vinden voor de publieke tribune. Entree is voor eigen rekening. Wij zorgen voor een aantal pitchers!
Voor de liefhebbers hierbij de regels nog even op een rijtje
Win: The simplest bet. The win bet means choosing the horse that crosses the line first. No prizes for second place. And if you're betting on a horse with weak odds, you'll be all the more richer if they win! Fun fact: The 2015 winning horse of the Melbourne Cup (Prince of Penzance) had odds of 1:101. That means if you bet HK$1,000, you would have made $101,000!!!
Place: Like hedging your bets for a better chance at winning? Place is selecting a single horse to finish in the top 3, for races containing 7 or more horses, or finish in the top 2 places for races with 4-6 horses.
Quinella: Quinella bets are for beginners. It means picking the horses that finishes 1st and 2nd, in any order.
Quinella Place: Quinella Place (the easier of the Quinella bets) means choosing any 2 horses that finish in the top 3.
Tierce: Tierce is for when you fancy yourself a bit of an expert. Tierce is predicting the first 3 horses to get their noses past the post in the correct order.
Trio: Trio bet is the same as a Tierce bet except the top 3 horses can finish in any order.
First 4: It's exactly as its named. Selecting the top 4 horses in any order.
Quartet: Quartet is for the pros. It's the same as First 4 except you must predict the top 4 horses in the correct order. And when it works, it works GOOD: A punter at the 2015 Melbourne Cup made a AU$9 Quartet bet, and raked in AU$125,000!!!!
Double: For those who fancy themselves as somewhat of a Horse Racing expert, the double is correctly predicting the winners from 2 races.
Treble: The treble is exactly like the double except for 3 races
Double Trio: Feeling lucky? Double trio is when you choose the top 3, in any order, in 2 races.
Triple Trio: Triple trio is picking the top 3 horses, in any order, for 3 races. Win this and the drinks are on you.
Six up: Lastly, the big daddy of all bets. To win this bet, you need to choose one horse to finish either first or second from all 6 races, and the champagne will be on you.
