9. The Milton Ulladulla ExServos Club will ensure that the minimum amount of the prize pool is $5,000.


The draw for the horses will be in the following manner:

1. From a draw barrel, a ticket bearing the name of a horse will be drawn. Immediately following, a Calcutta ticket will be drawn from a separate barrel. The name of the horse and drawer will be displayed in view of the persons attending the Calcutta.

2. The auction for the horses will be the longest priced horse to the shortest price horse.

3. A progress total of the prize pool will be announced periodically. As there is a guaranteed minimum pool, the organisers will keep a record of the progress of the horse sales and once the advertised amount has been reached, all monies raised in excess of this amount will be added to the prize pool.

4. All payments for the horses must be settled at the conclusion of the auction. Payment must be made by cash or Eftpos. Should a bidder fail to pay, the horse will be re-auctioned.

5. The drawer of the horse must sell a half share, whereby in the event of the horse being placed First, Second or Third, he/she shares the prize money with the buyer.

6. The drawer of the horse may sell a full share. In this case, the drawer keeps half of the bid, the other half is included in the prize pool. The buyer then becomes the outright owner of the horse.

7. If a drawer of a horse is not present, and there are no instructions to the contrary, a half share of the horse will be sold.

8. Prizes as follows: First: 70% of prize pool; Second: 20% of prize pool; Third: 10% of prize pool.

9. All bids are “All In”. If a horse is scratched, no refunds will be given.

10. Syndicates must divide their winnings themselves. The Milton Ulladulla ExServos Club takes no responsibility for the distribution of funds amongst members of the syndicate.
