- Calcutta 10-Oct-2017
Raffle tickets costing $5 are sold concluding on Calcutta night, Monday 6th November 2017. The ticket sales create a pool of money called the ‘starting pool’.
On the Calcutta night, 24 of the tickets sold over the previous 5 weeks are drawn out for the respective 24 Melbourne Cup horses. Those lucky enough to have drawn a horse are the ‘lucky breeders’.
At this point, horses will be actioned in descending order of longest odds to favourite. Anyone can bid on any horse during the auction.
If the ‘breeder’ would like to keep their horse, they must have the highest bids. However the breeder only has to pay half the amount that he or she has successfully bid. The amount is added to the starting pool.
If the successful bidder is not the original breeder, they must pay the full amount of the bid. 50% of the price paid is added to the starting pool, with the other 50% going to the original breeder. The successful bidder is now the new ‘owner’.
