Contest Scoring

Once a player has placed the required $25 Win bets on at least five races combined from Del Mar and Saratoga, ALL of his or her $25 Win wagers placed on Del Mar and Saratoga on Saturday, July 20 will be considered entered in the contest.

At the end of the day, all contests players will be ranked by their ROI on their combined $25 Win wagers on races from Del Mar and Saratoga.

ROI is calculated by subtracting the total amount bet in contest wagers from winnings returned from contest wagers and dividing that sum by the total amount bet in contest wagers.

Each Player’s ROI is then expressed as a percentage. For example, if a player bets $200 and wins $400 from those wagers, his or her ROI is 100%. $400 in winnings less $200 wagered equals $200, divided by $200 = 1 or 100%.
