The free-to-enter Road to Kentucky Handicapping Contest is just one of three opportunities for players to use their handicapping acumen for additional gain on Saturday. R2K will use the Del Mar card that begins at 4pm and features the Shared Belief Stakes, a Derby prep add-on as we head toward the September 5th Run For The Roses. Players select one horse in each race and earn points based on mutuel payoffs. Best scores earn cash. This giveaway takes place weekly in the Racebook.
The ongoing Dog Days Super Satellites on Saturday offer a chance to advance to a Sept. 6 Satellite and then to the Dog Days event itself. Entry fee to the Super is $10 per track. Contest tracks are Saratoga, Gulfstream and Del Mar, using the first eight races at each.
An immediate entry to the 24th annual Dog Days of Summer Handicapping Tournament can be won in The Lost Spring Satellite. The entry fee to this is $100 with one player for each five entries winning a $550 entry to the Dog Days on Sept. 12-13 which feeds to the $3 million National Horseplayers Championship. The Lost Spring format is selecting one horse in each of 10 mandatory races and making one of the selections worth double points. Points are earned based on across-the-board payouts. Again there will be one winner for each five entries. Click above to see the rules and the races.
