Change #1
11.14 Place6 Betting
11.14.1 Interpretation
In Rule 11.1, unless the context otherwise requires:
"Place6" is a bet type whereby the Investor endeavours to select a Placed Entrant in each of the six Races as designated by the Board.
"Dividend Bearing Places" on a Race that is a leg of a Place6, means the number of parts that the Dividend Pool for Place Betting on that same Race, will be divided and is determined as follows:
(a) Dividend Bearing Places will be zero if the number of Race Entrants in a race is four or fewer. In such cases all Entrants in the Race will be deemed to be Placed Entrants for purposes of Place6 betting.
(b) Dividend Bearing Places will be two where the number of Starters is five, six or seven. In such cases the first and second Entrants will be Placed Entrants for the purposes of Place6 betting.
Change #2
APPENDIX 1 is amended with the addition of the "Place6" details in alphabetical order as follows:
