Do you lose if a supplemented horse doesn't run

by Tom Tinkler

Do I lose my money if I back a horse needing to be supplemented for a race but does not get supplemented and therefore doesn't run?

Answer: Any bet placed before an event takes place in the ante-post market. Once the bet is placed and the horse does not run for whatever reason you will forfeit your stake.

The exception to this rule is when a horse is balloted out of a race it intended to run in. This would be due to higher rated horses taking preference for the available places. In this case your stake is returned.
