This week’s contest centers around Oaklawn Park and the 11 races including the double-point Southwest Stakes, an important Kentucky Derby prep. First post and entry deadline is set for noon.

Do You Believe?

Think your Road to Kentucky score will be competitive?  Then back it up in the Bet On Yourself in R2K Contest each week. Bet On Yourself in R2K is a series of single-day contests held each Saturday of Road to Kentucky where you submit a $10 entry fee and compete for a prize pool consisting of all entry fees collected on the day of each contest with the winner being determined by the highest score recorded by an entrant in that day’s Road to Kentucky Handicapping Contest .

Of the players entered each date, the entire pool of entry fees collected that day will be paid as the prize pool to the entrant with the highest score. The winner also receives one 2023 Handicapper of the Year point.

Congrats to Week 1 winner of R2K Joseph Madison who won $200 in prize money for finishing first in week 1. Had he entered Bet On Yourself in R2K he would have won an additional $270. Instead, Greg O’Brien swept the Bet On Yourself pool with the 28th best score of the week. Twenty-seven others passed on a chance to capitalize on their opinion.
