Free To Enter Handicapping Contest Saturday

The Road to Kentucky Handicapping Contest continues Saturday. There is no fee to enter. Prize money is paid to the top four players based on scores determined by the Win-Place-Show payouts of selections in each race at Saratoga.  In addition, the top two players earn an entry to the Grand Prize contest  which will award a $3 million National Handicappers Championship entry.

Saratoga has quite a card on Saturday, 11 races in all beginning at 12:10 p.m. There are four stakes on the program, including the G3 Saranac, the G2 Amsterdam, the G1 Forego and the G1 Win and You’re In Breeders’ Cup Turf Sword Dancer with a half a million dollar purse.

Road to Kentucky contest entry deadline is post time of the first race at Saratoga.

Kentucky Derby Day Tickets Available

Only eight day until the 146th running of the Kentucky Derby.  Although Churchill Downs will not have spectators, Canterbury Park will. There are capacity limits by Executive Order so anyone wishing to enter the grandstand that day will need a ticket. There are a few tickets remaining and they can be purchased with credit card or 500 MVP Rewards points here:

While limited capacity in not a great business model, what it does mean for guests is plenty of room to spread out and enjoy a wonderful day of simulcast racing. Churchill begins that morning at 10 a.m. Arrive before and enter the final Road to Kentucky Contest as well.

Those that can’t make it on the first Saturday in September can advance wager beginning Thursday at noon in the clubhouse or at the walk-up windows in the ticket office.
