Live Racing Tickets On Sale Saturday / R2K Continues

With one Saturday remaining before Kentucky Derby Day on May 1, the Road to Kentucky Contest is far from over as participants jockey for position. Last week the featured track was Keeneland. The prices were short and of course with Derby preps now in the books, there was no double-point race. The result was some very low scores meaning there was not a lot of movement in the overall standings.

Road to Kentucky Handicapping Contest

This Saturday the featured track will be Belmont Park, which opens this week, with a noon first post. All nine races will be used. Once again, there is $525 in cash prizes available to the best players on Saturday so having played the duration is not a prerequisite to making  money.  Here are the rules for those unfamiliar.
