Play Hoops and Horses for 2 Million Points

March 21 - 22

The NCAA men's basketball tournament rolls into its third round this weekend while some of the nation's finest thoroughbreds are taking to the track to prove they have what it takes to win at the highest levels in racing. Whether it's hardwood, polytrack, turf or dirt, you can play right along with the best of them at TwinSpires.

Just place a Show bet for the designated amount in any one of six races to select your horse and the winner of the corresponding NCAA Tournament game for a shot at 1 Million TSC Elite Points on Saturday. For each horse you pick that shows, you will earn 2 points in the contest. For each winning team you pick, you will earn 1 point in the contest.

Then come back on Sunday and do it all again for another 1 Million Points prize.

How to Play

  • Pick your race winner and game winner by placing a $9 Show bet or $8 Show bet on a single horse in each designated contest race.
  • Only your first Show wager for exactly $9 or $8 will count as your official contest wager. 
  • A $9 Show bet counts as your basketball game selection, on the "favorite" or team with the lower seeding number (e.g. 1, 2, 3, etc.)
  • An $8 Show bet counts as your basketball game selection, on the "underdog" or team with the higher seeding number (e.g. 13, 14, 15, etc.)
  • Basketball selections are to win the game outright; no point spreads.

How to Win

  • Each day, Saturday, March 21 and Sunday, March 22, features a separate contest.
  • In the six contest races, a winning contest wager will count as two points toward a player's score.
  • In the six basketball games, a winning selection will count as one point toward a player's score.
  • The most points any player can earn is 18 points per day.
  • On a given day, the player or players who earn the most points will win or split 1,000,000 TSC Elite Points.
