Refunds are not allowed for any reason. If you do not cancel an entry at least two hours prior to the start of the contest, the entry fee may not be refunded for any reason.

How many races are involved in a typical Horse Racing contest?
Typically, 10-15 individual fixtures (races) will be included in a Horse Racing contest.

From what racetracks do you select races from, and how many?
Most horse racing contests will involve races from 2-3 different racetracks from the United States and Canada. However, international races may also be used from time to time. Check the contest descriptions for a list of eligible racetracks for inclusion in each contest.

How do I make selections? What kinds of wagers are made?
Selections are made in the View/Make Picks section. $2 mythical Win/Place bets are made on a single horse for each contest race. Only one horse may be selected per race. Players will also make an Alternate selection in the event that their Primary selection scratches out of the race.

When and where are contest races posted?
Contest races are posted two (2) days prior to the scheduled contest date, usually between 4:00 and 7:00 p.m. ET, and are posted in the contest description page for each contest.

When can I make selections?
Typically, selections will open between 5:00 and 7:00 p.m. ET the day prior to the contest. Players registered for a particular contest will receive an e-mail notification when selections are open for a particular contest. The "Latest Update" section on the home page will also reflect when selections are open for upcoming contests.

When do contest events (races) close?
In contests that run under the regular, live format whereby selections may be edited up until post time for each race, selections will close for each race as the second half of the field is loading into the starting gate. Users are responsible for ensuring that all selections are made on time. We highly recommend making selections in advance and editing throughout the day as necessary, at least 2-3 minutes before expected off time.

In PICK & PRAY format contests, selections close for ALL contest races once the first contest race in the schedule (regardless of chronological order) closes. Players must make all selections in advance in PICK & PRAY format contests and will not have the ability to edit picks once selections have been closed.

Do I actually get the money that I earn from contest wagers?
No, earnings from contest wagers are mythical and used as a score only.

From what source are payouts for wagers reported from?
Mutuel payout prices are those reported by the tote system in the United States.

What is the payout schedule for winners?
Please visit the How to Play page, which details the payout schedule based on how many entries are participating in Horse Racing contests.

What is the 48-hour audit rule?
Horse Racing contests will not be declared official until approximately 48 hours after the contest is over. This time is intended to allow for the unlikely event of scoring errors or other circumstances requiring adjustments. Any scoring changes will be expressly reported to all participants.

Are NHC Tour points awarded in contests?
NHC Tour points are awarded only in contests that offer NHC qualifying spots as prizes. NHC Tour points are awarded in conjunction with NHC Tour rules and policies (usually the top 10 percent of contest entries receive NHC Tour points).
