Contestants must be at least 18 years old.
Keeneland employees, mutuel clerks and employees of United Tote and Turf Catering are ineligible to participate in this contest.
Contestants may register and receive a game card at the table on the second floor near Elevator C beginning at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, January 12. Registration will continue on Saturdays and Sundays through Saturday, February 23. Wagers in the tournament must be made by the cardholder.
The contest will consist of 32 scheduled races as designated by Keeneland.
Players may make imaginary $5 “across the board” (Win, Place and Show) wagers on a single horse for all contest races (see attached) from January 19 through February 23. From March 2 through April 27, players may make imaginary $10 “across the board” wagers on a single horse. For the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes, and Belmont Stakes, players may make $20 “across the board” wagers on a single horse.
Players must make their wagers at the “Contest Only” windows. These wagers will be made on a self-serve machine and players must have their cards to make the wagers.
If a late scratch occurs in any contest race, the actual post time favorite (at the host track) will be substituted, provided the contestant has placed an imaginary wager on the race.
Players please note:
Any contest race cancelled or moved to another date by the host track will cause that race to be eliminated from the contest. Any race with no place and/or show wagering will also be eliminated. There will be no replacement races.
Official standings are based on imaginary “winnings” only. Contestants will not be credited for races not bet and there will be no credit for cancelled pools.
Weekly standings will be posted at www.keeneland.com with the current top-ten list available for viewing at the information window on the second floor.
At the conclusion of the Keeneland Simulcasting Road to the Crown Challenge on Saturday, June 8, 2013, the contestant with the largest imaginary bankroll will be declared the winner and will win the grand prize of $3,000. The second-place finisher will receive $1,000, with $500 to third, $400 to fourth and $300 to fifth. Sixth through tenth place finishers will receive $100. (Ties will be separated in “dead-heat” fashion with players sharing prize money.)
