Seats are filling up fast in the Breeders’ Cup handicapping contests taking place on DerbyWars, racing’s premier contest site.
The tournaments are led by Saturday’s $25,000 Breeders’ Cup ‘High Stakes’ Contest, which boasts a $10,000 first-place prize and pays down to seventh place. The game has attracted some of racing’s fiercest handicapping contest players to compete for the top honors. In all, sixty players will contest the game and only a few spots remain at the time of publication. The cost to enter is $475.
Also highlighting the Saturday tournament menu is the $10,000 Breeders’ Cup Lockdown. With a prize structure mimicking DerbyWars’ weekly Saturday feature, the contest guarantees a $5,000 first-place prize comprised of $4,525 cash and a $475 Token to be used in an upcoming ‘High Stakes’ tournament. The ‘Lockdown’ aspect of the game mean that players must submit all tournament selections before the start of the first contest race, and then will be disallowed to change or alter those selections once the tournament has begun. Lockdown is the perfect format for players who may be at a Breeders’ Cup Party, playing in other handicapping contests, or – for the most unlucky – have to work during the races. The contest is limited top 67 players, with 63 already having entered the game – so very few seats remain! The cost to enter is $175.
