BCBC Satellite September 25th Recap

Donna Jones, Dennis Adams and Stephen Thompson were the top three finishers in the BC Betting Challenge Satellite on Saturday. In defeating 373 other players, the three members each won a berth into the Breeders' Cup Betting Challenge at Churchill Downs to compete for over $300,000 in prize money and six seats to the National Handicapping Championship. Each prize package, valued at $10,500, also includes private seating and accommodations during both days of the Breeders' Cup.

"We had an overwhelming response for this second satellite event with 376 paid entries," explained Rich Nilsen, Tournament Director for "Thank you to all the TwinSpires contest players who supported our online tournaments this month, and we look forward to providing our members with other opportunities in the near future."

The first place finisher, Donna Jones, only played one entry and she selected 8 winners from the 12 mandatory contest events, building her mythical bankroll to $110.40. Runner-up Dennis Adams finished second and eighth, respectively, with two of his three paid entries. His best bankroll accumulated $97.70. Stephen Thompson had three double-digit winners from the four he selected, building his bankroll to $87.80, good for third place and the final entry to the big money contest at the Breeders' Cup.
