What is a Jockey Challenge?

Jockey Challenge allows you to bet on which Jockey will score the most points at a nominated Meeting. For each race at the Meeting 6 points are allocated, 3 points go to the jockey of the winning horse, 2 for second and 1 for third. The jockey with the most points at the end of the Meeting wins the challenge.

In the case of a deadheat, the points are shared (but 6 points is still the total allocation for the race).

  • With a deadheat for first the jockeys share the points for 1st and 2nd (5) – so 2.5 points each (The jockey of the 3rd placed horse scores 1 point).
  • With a deadheat for second the jockeys share the points for 2nd and 3rd (3) – so 1.5 points each
  • With a deadheat for third the jockeys share the point for 3rd (1) – so .5 of a point each.
