Ante Post Betting
Ante-Post simply refers to betting on future events. Often, you can secure a bigger price than what you would closer to the event, however the risk is that if your selection is a non-runner, it’s settled as a loser.
When can Ante-Post bets be declared void?
Ante-Post bets are declared void if a race is abandoned and doesn’t take place at a later date at the same venue.
What happens if a race or meeting is postponed?
If your selected race or meeting is postponed, your bet stands if it’s run at a later date at the same venue.
What happens if a race or meeting is postponed after the Final Declaration Stage?
If a bet is placed after the final declarations, and the race is then postponed all bets are void.
