Road To Kentucky 2017

 $25,000 in Prizes

 Saturdays • January 21 - May 6


The handicapping tournament that features the best 3-year-old horses on the road to the 143rd Kentucky Derby.


Every Saturday features a new slate of races and a new chance to win. Simply select one horse in each race at the featured track as well as each bonus race. Points will be awarded based on a mythical $20 across the board bet. Bonus races earn double points; the Kentucky Derby earns triple points. A cap limits the points you can earn on a single race. The entry deadline is first post of the contest track. Scratches will be replaced with post-time favorite. Must be 18 to play.


Players must write their valid MVP number on their entry slip in order for it to be scored accurately.  Failing to do so may result in a forfeited entry. Sign up for a free MVP card at the 3rd Floor Information Booth.  Replacement cards or card number lookup also available.


Weekly and Overall Season-Long prizes will be awarded. For the overall contest score, each player gets to drop their THREE lowest contest scores. Dropping scores will begin Week 5.


Weekly Prizes will be available Fridays at NOON On Your
