APPLICABILITY OF THESE RULES
The following specific rules govern the end user's use of all the Operator/Platform Provider's (the "Operator") interactive racing betting products and services offered on www.sbo001.com. They form part of the Operator's General Term & Conditions, which apply to all the interactive and wagering products and services the Operator offers to individuals who register for or are holders of a betting account (the “End User”) with the Operator. To the extent there is any inconsistency between the General Terms and Conditions and any of these Racing Betting Rules, the General Terms and Conditions shall prevail.
Throughout these Racing Betting Rules, any reference to "we", "our", or "us" refers to the Operator, as noted in the General Terms and Conditions as providing the relevant services.
1. ANTE POST BETTING
1.1 Ante post bets on horseracing are bets placed prior to the final declaration stage of a horse race (when the final field of runners is known).
1.2 Ante post bets are placed on the basis of “all in” meaning that if the horse does not run or participate in the race, the bet is a loser.
1.3 Notwithstanding Rule 1.2 of this Horse Racing Rules above, if a horse race is postponed to another day:
(a) Ante post bets placed before the entries have closed shall stand and shall only be made void if:
- (i) the race is abandoned or made void; or
- (ii) a horse is balloted out under the Jockey Club Rules of Racing; or
- (iii) the venue for the race is altered.
(b) Ante post bets placed after the entries have closed will be void, except when:
- (i) the race is run at a later date at the same venue; or
- (ii) the entries are not re-opened.
2.1 The Operator reserves the option to offer “Non-runner, No Bet” (“NRNB”) on the ante post horseracing markets prior to the final declaration stage.
2.2 The decision to offer NRNB, and the timing as to when this offer is made, is at the sole discretion of the Operator.
2.3 The Operator is under no obligation to offer NRNB at any time on any of its ante post horserace betting markets.
2.4 The Operator will state on the relevant pages of the website https://www.sbobet.com/ (the “Website”) when specific ante post markets have NRNB status.
2.5 When the Operator declares NRNB on a specific ante post market offered by the Operator then:
(a) all ante post bets placed after the declaration of NRNB by the Operator are no longer placed on an “all in” basis for that market. (b) ante post bets placed on a horse after the Operator declares NRNB in a specific race will be refunded if:
- (i) that horse is not subsequently declared at the final declaration stage; or
- (ii) that horse is a non-runner.
