How can we help?

Abandoned (Event)

A race meeting which has been cancelled because a club did not receive sufficient nominations to be able to stage it, or because of inclement weather which made racing on the track unsafe. A race meeting may also be abandoned part way through because of inclement weather or unsafe track conditions. All unresolved bets placed on abandoned races are fully refunded with the exception of Pick6, Double, Treble and Quaddie bets. These bets are subject to conditions set out under Rule 11 in the TAB's Betting Rules.


A runner officially listed to start in a race.

All In

With all-in betting there are no refunds given for scratched or withdrawn competitors or teams in an event where a bet is placed. Should an event be cancelled then the amount bet will be refunded.

All Up

Is not a bet type. It is a means of reinvesting the outcome of one race onto another. Select between two and six races at the same meeting. You can place a Win, Place, or Quinella bet. Dividends are automatically reinvested into your next wager. All your selections must come in for your ticket to be a winner.

Also Ran

A horse which does not finish in one of the first three places in a race.

Apprentice Allowance

All thoroughbred horses have to carry an allotted weight when they race. In most cases this weight can be reduced if an apprentice jockey is used. The amount of this weight reduction is called the apprentice allowance. This allowance starts at 4kg and decreases as the apprentice jockey wins more races

The current apprentice allowances in New Zealand are:

0 - 5 wins 4kg
6 - 30 wins 3kg
31 - 60 wins 2kg
61 - 100 wins 1kg
