Horse Player World Series Satellite Contest Saturday

Saturday presents an opportunity for handicappers to use their skills to win a trip to Las Vegas in March to play in the annual Horse Player World Series at The Orleans Hotel & Casino by playing in the $100 HPWS Satellite Contest in the Canterbury Park Race Book. The HPWS usually pays more the $250,000 to the winner with prize payouts going much deeper during the three-day event.

  • $100 entry fee
  • Each entrant makes 10 mystical $2 Win Place wagers on races of their choice.
  • Contest runs from the start of the day until approximately 5:30 pm
  • For each 25 entries, one player wins the HPWS package which includes entry to the contest, accommodations at The Orleans, and $450 for airfare.

The contest winners are determined by highest scores with players earning points for the mythical wagers based on mutuel payouts of their selections.

Visit the contest page for more information. All North American thoroughbred and quarter horse races offered in the contest time window can be selected for contest play. A complete list of eligible races will be posted online Thursday after all tracks have listed race times.
