How to Play

  • Place a $10 Show wager on a single horse in any race from Fair Grounds on Nov. 22, 23 or 24. Each day is a separate contest.
  • One contest wager per race: only a player's first $10 Show wager on a single horse or entry will count in the contest.
  • Wagers must be placed for exactly $10 to Show; combination Win/Place/Show, Win/Show and Place/Show wagers will not qualify.
  • Wagers using multiple horses will not qualify.
  • Scratches must be rebet; wagers on scratched horses will not count as contest wagers.

How to Win

  • The player who records a winning contest wager ($10 Show) in the most races on the Fair Grounds card will be declared the winner.
  • A TwinSpires Online Handicapping Championship Entry will be awarded to the contest winner and runner up.
  • Tiebreaker: In the event of a tie for any position awarding a Nov. 30 Championship Entry, total winnings from all contest wagers will be used to break the tie.

In the event a player who has already won the maximum 2 entries to the Nov. 30 Championship finishes high enough to win another entry, s/he will be awarded the cash equivalent of the entry fee ($500).

Results will be posted on this page on a next-day basis.
