Road to Kentucky

Handicapping Tournament

The $25,000 Road to Kentucky handicapping contest is back!

Follow the top 3-year-old horses in the country each Saturday until the Kentucky Derby on September 5!

Starting Saturday, June 20, each week gives you a fresh slate of horses and a new opportunity to win. Weekly and season-long prizes will be awarded to the top handicappers. The contest picks up where it left off in March, with the accumulated scores still standing. The scores from January – March will be added in at the end of the contest in September.

This year’s Road to Kentucky features a Grand Prize Contest, with the winner getting an entry to the $3 million National Horseplayer Championship in 2021, plus airfare and accommodations (a total value of $4,600!). The top two players each week and top eight players overall will get an entry for the Grand Prize Contest on Saturday, September 19. Win that and you have a chance to win $1 million just for picking winners!

How to Play
Players select one horse in each race at the featured track as well as each bonus race. Points are awarded based on a mythical $20 across the board bet. Bonus races earn double points, while the Kentucky Derby earns triple points.
You can enter at the third floor information booth starting at 10 a.m. on Saturdays from June 20 through September 5 . Winners of weekly and overall contests will receive points toward our 2020 Handicapper of the Year honor.
The entry deadline is first post of the contest track. Scratches will be replaced with the post time favorite. A cap limits the points you can earn on a single race. For overall point totals, players must subtract their three lowest weekly scores. Must be 18 to play and 21 to win Grand Prize.
