Road to the Derby contest

This contest will be exactly like the ones we have had in previous years. The contest will start on January 1 with the Jerome Stakes at Aqueduct and will end on April 13 with the Arkansas Derby(Oaklawn) and the Lexington(Keeneland). Also, the UAE Derby at Meydan Racecourse is included in the contest.

Here are the rules...


1. Contest is open to all Cappersmall members. Entry is free but as always donations are always welcome. I am putting up 5000 reward points towards prizes.
2. Contest will consist of 26 total prep races with points awarded to top 4 finishers of each race. 10 races(10-4-2-1), 2 races(20-8-4-2), 7 races(50-20-10-5), 7 races(100-40-20-10). For list of races visit Kentucky Derby.com.
3. A thread will be posted for each race and you will post in the thread the name of the horse you select for that race. You must post the name of horse to be eligible. Do not post a number.
4. If your horse is part of an entry, you will NOT receive the entire entry. You get one horse only towards points earned.
5. You will receive whatever points are earned by your horse towards your point totals for the contest.
6. Will pay out a minimum of 3 places and up to 5 places depending on number of entries. Will also award weekly reward points to those who pick winner of each race.
7. You do not need to make a selection in every race to be eligible. Of course the more races you make a selection, the better your chances.
8. If your selection scratches, you have up until post time to make another selection. You will not automatically receive the post time favorite. You will receive credit towards entry(see rule 9) for that race even if your selection scratched
9. Any poster who makes a selection in at least 20 prep races will be eligible for a Kentucky Derby contest I will run on Derby day and also for contests I run for Preakness and Belmont. There is no TC contest this year.
10. I will not run any other contest on Derby day, so good participation in this contest is needed to play in contest I run on Derby day.

I will update the standings each week in a separate thread.

You donít need to donate to enter the contest but if you want to, send donation to me.

Thanks to griswold and 3PtShooter for their donations.

We now have 33,000 points for this pool!

I will start a thread for the standings and update each week when there are races. I will also send out points for those who picked winners when standings are updated. This will usually be done by Saturday or Sunday night.
