Official Contest Rules


 Players will be allowed to play in a $10 Super Satellite Contest each Thursday, Friday, and/or Saturday with the highest individual score from each three-day contest period determining the winner. Players may choose to play on the three selected track (eight races at each track) each Thursday, Friday, and/or Saturday. Each entry is $10, but players may participate only once per day and each day must pay a $10 entry fee if they choose to play. Each week, one winner for every 5 entries will receive a $50 entry to the Hawthorne Satellite. The super satellite contest format requires entrants to select one horse in each of the eight contest races and submit the selections before entry deadline. Points will be awarded for selections based on the official mutuel payoffs based on a mythical $20 across-the-boards wager. One entry per person per day. Entrants must be 21 of age or older. The highest score from each three day contest period will determine the winner. For example, Player A may have the highest score of 800 on Thursday of the contest period but would not beat Player B who scores 900 points on the Saturday of the same contest period.
