  1. In the case of a horse(s) being scratched:  The cap, with the horse’s name, which is racing in the SANSUI Summer Cup main race, will still be in the bag for the initial draw.  Should a finalist draw a scratched horse, they will win a consolation prize.
  2. In the case of a horse(s) finishing without a jockey:  That horse does not constitute a win nor a place and therefore the finalist who drew that horse(s) will receive a consolation prize.
  3. Should a finalist not be present for the draw at the specified time and their name and number are called, they will then automatically have to wait until the end of the draw to make their selection.
  4. The winners of the three main prizes need to remain at the draw area for a period of 30 minutes after the draw has taken place due to a photo opportunity with the JD Group.
