Jockey Challenges

Post by A Mum on Fri Apr 20, 2012 11:32 am

We've had some interest in starting a Jockey Challenge thread on the site... so here goes

What is a Jockey Challenge?

A 'market' of 7 selected jockeys and an 'AOJ' (any other jockey) is given per selected race meetings.
Each race Jockey's are given points depending on where their mount finishes: 3 points for winning, 2 for coming second and 1 for coming third.
And of course if you don't come in the first 3 then it's 0 points.
At the end of the meeting whichever Jockey has recieved the most points is the winner for the day.
Markets can be found online from various betting agencies such as Sportsbet: http://www.sportsbet.com.au/horse-racing/jockey-challenge

Fields:
Racing fields and jockey's rides can be found here http://tatts.com/racing

Leaderboards:
2 websites that keep track of how the jockeys are going throughout the day.
Sportingbet: http://www.sportingbet.com.au/#&&s=Features
'Jockey Challenge' : http://www.jockey-challenge.com/

Jockey Challenges are often referred to as 'Roller Coaster Rides' - but are a lot of fun.

Good luck to everyone who has a go Very Happy

If my jockeys start fast, that normally means they stop to a walk and get overtaken later in the day affraid

You can pick as little or as many as you like.

So today there is 3 meetings.
You can pick 1 meeting and have 1 jockey.
Or you can pick 1 meeting and have 5 jockey's.
Or you can pick 3 meetings and have 2 in each etc, etc.

It's personal choice and how much you want to spend.

A bit like backing a horse, but in this you're backing a jockey over the whole meeting.

I hope that makes sense.

(Brodlach etc - feel free to answer questions on how it works - because I could be totally confusing everyone..lol)

No Bundy - us other's have private accounts with various betting agencies.

If you were to play 'for real' then you'd need to open an account with them.

So definitely no money owed.

No mate lol!

Its something you bet on with the TAB or Bookies. We then just talk about who we have had a bet on. It has alot of ups and downs.
