First Past The Post Rules – Who Pays Out Amended Result Only?

Picture the scene, you’re in your local bookmaker shop and you are placing a bet on a horse race that’s about to come on live in the shop at any moment. You quickly place your bet after scribbling at the speed of light the horses name (lucky star), your stake the meeting and the time.

The bets on and away the horses go, you watch intently as your horse seems to be travelling quite well as they come towards the end of the race. The commentator screams as they come towards the end of the race “and Lucky Star hits the front at the furlong pole and there is only one threat to him here comes Green Dreamer down the outside”.

It’s at this point that your horse Lucky Star bumps into Green Dreamer and your horse’s jockey has the whip in the wrong hand, for example, your horse rallies but doesn’t get back up due to the interference and poor jockeying from the rival horse.

The steward’s enquiry sirens play after the race and there is an intense wait to see what the stewards decide upon the race, The stewards decide that Green Dreamer was seriously impeded and would have won the race, so they amend the result to Green Dreamer as the winner and your horse is now second so you don’t get paid.

Or do you? Many bookmakers these days payout on a thing called the first past the post ruling, this means whatever horse finished first they will pay out on that horse as well as the amended result. Worth checking that your online bookmaker pays out on first past the post and amended result as this happens more often than you would imagine.

An example of a stewards enquiry

Below is a video of a stewards enquiry which shows what can happen to your horse if something happens during the race. Amended results due to stewards enquiries are rarer these days but they still happen but if your horse won due to the interference its wise to have a bookie that pays out on first past the post.
