Get paid on President's Day!

Our first ever VIP-only Handicapping Contest kicks off on Monday, February 19, 2018.

This contest is for VIP members only, and will take place in the VIP forum (http://www.paceadvantage.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=107). If you don't see the VIP forum at the top of the list of forums (http://www.paceadvantage.com/forum/?), it means you're not registered as a VIP. Want to become a VIP and get access to the VIP contests, plus other perks? Then Click Here (http://www.paceadvantage.com/forum/misc.php?do=donate).

$130 cash prize, payable via PayPal-only. $100 to the winner, $30 to the second place finisher.

Rules are as follows:

Nine races from tracks across the country. Race schedule will be posted by Saturday night.
Win/Place contest, with caps enforced for Win (15/1 cap) and Place (8/1 cap).
The person with the highest total Win+Place mutuel payouts (with caps enforced) will win.
Picks must be posted in the contest thread on the VIP Forum PRIOR TO POST TIME OF THE FIRST CONTEST RACE. Only ONE POST per entry (this means put all of your picks into one and only one post). Any close calls will be decided by the timestamp on the contest entry and the "Off Time" on the Equibase official chart. The contest thread will be created when the list of races is released on Saturday.
EDITED contest entries need to be time stamped BEFORE POST TIME OF THE FIRST CONTEST RACE. Keep in mind there is a 15 minute time limit on editing of posts on this board, and you won't be able to edit your post after 15 minutes. Any contest entries that are marked edited AFTER post time of the first race will be considered VOID.
In the event a player's selection is scratched, the player will receive the favorite as determined by the official Equibase chart.
"Beat The Host" and get an extra 20%. I will be playing in the contest as well, but of course won't be eligible for the cash prize. However, if you win, and you beat me in the process, you'll earn a 20% bonus on your winnings. Second-place finisher is not eligible for the bonus.

See you in the contest!

BTW, this is a one pick per race contest, with no alternate selections. Your score will be based on a mythical $2 Win/Place wager placed on each pick.
