How to Play
- Place a $5 Show bet on a single horse in any race on the designated contest card on any Friday night from October 9 – 30, and Monday, Nov. 2.
- Only your first $5 Show bet on a single horse will count as your official contest wager in a given race. Scratches must be rebet; wagers on scratched horses will not count in the contest.
How to Win
- All players who cash a winning $5 Show wager on at least 5 separate races on the designated contest card will win or split $1,000 with all other winners.
- All players who go “five-for-five” by cashing a winning $5 Show wager on five races without placing a losing $5 Show wager will win or split a bonus prize of $1,000. In the event no players qualify for the “five for five” bonus, the $1,000 bonus prize will carry over to the next week’s bonus prize.
$5,000 in total prizes on Emirates Melbourne Cup Night
