Terms & Conditions
Tickets are sold for $5 each with the money from these sales forming the starting pool. A total of 10% from the starting pool is donated to the ‘Kids on the Border’ charity.
At the Calcutta on Thursday 18th of August 2022, a ticket is drawn against each horse in the 2022 Riverview Hotel Murwillumbah Cup field. The person who owns this ticket becomes the “drawer”.
Each horse is then auctioned and sold to the highest bidder, with 50% of the sale price won by the drawer and 50% being added to the starting pool. If the drawer decides to purchase their horse, they pay only 50% of the auctioned price.
After all horses are auctioned, a final pool is declared, and the person who buys the eventual winner of the 2022 Riverview Hotel Murwillumbah Cup collects 60% of that pool, second place 20%, third place 10% and the final 10% goes to the buyer of the last place horse.
All auction purchases must be paid and in full on the Calcutta night.
Winnings will be transferred into the nominated bank account before COB Tuesday 23rd of August 2022.
