Protest Payouts - Every Race, Every Day!
If your horse is first past the post but gets relegated because of an upheld protest, we’ll still pay you out as a winner. This applies to every Australian Horse and Harness Race, every day!
How does the Protest Payout work?
1. Select your horse and confirm your bet
2. Your horse is first past the post, but gets relegated due to an upheld protest
3. Don't worry, Sportsbet will still pay your horse as a winner!
