BC SATURDAY $1,250 VIP TOURNAMENT

Format = $2 WPS - one horse per race. You are only picking ONE HORSE PER RACE and you will receive whatever the payoff is for that horse if it finishes 1st, 2nd or 3rd (Win, Place or Show payoffs only).

Races = All 9 Breeders' Cup races run on Saturday November 5 @ Keeneland - so you will be posting nine picks in total, one horse for each race

Total Prize Pool = $1,250 (much thanks to jocko699 for putting up the initial prize pool ($250) and for suggesting this contest)...also much thanks to VIC STAUFFER for $250 and cj for $100!!!

Eligibility = you must be a VIP...anyone currently a VIP is eligible, along with anyone becoming a VIP between now and prior to 11:50am on Saturday 11/5/2022. If you see the red & white VIP icon to the right of your user name on your posts, you are a VIP. You can also check this list to see if your name is on the list of VIPs --> http://www.paceadvantage.com/forum/misc.php?do=donlist

Not a VIP? See this link.

Rules = All picks must be posted IN THE VIP CONTEST FORUM prior to post time of the first Breeders' Cup race on Saturday 11/5/22. You may edit and/or repost your picks, as long as you have them posted before 11:50am ET on 11/5/2022, which is post time for the BC F&M Sprint. You must be a VIP in order to access the VIP CONTEST FORUM. If your horse is scratched and you are unable to post a new selection, you will get the post time favorite.

Prize money will be distributed as follows based on total WPS payouts on your 9 selections:

1st Place = $875
2nd Place = $250
3rd Place = $125

All prize money will be paid via PayPal. No exceptions. If you can't receive money via PayPal, then you will forfeit any prize money claims and your prize will be paid to the next highest total WPS earner.

I'll sweeten the pot.

I'll put up an extra $500 for the purse.

$250 for the winner and another $250 sent to the www.arkansasracetrackchaplaincy.com in their name.

LET'S GO!

Very generous of you Vic.

cj has also put up $100 of which I will match 100% (not matching Vic's generosity...too rich for my blood)

So total prize pool is tentatively set at $950 according to my gorilla math.

Vic, please send the $250 via PayPal to ads@paceadvantage.com or just use the Donate link...same thing

THANKS TO ALL who are making this happen.

Incredibly generous of all of you. Thanks to PA Mike for running this contest. Now if I could only handicap my way out of a wet paper bag on these big races.

Somebody just donated anonymously and I can't figure out who you are...so if you want your VIP badge to be able to play in this tournament, send me a private message with the name that appears on your PayPal donation, which will verify who you are to me.

Thanks.

BONUS SURPRISE ANNOUNCEMENT:

The last place finisher will receive $75 with which they can dry their tears. Didn't want to announce this before the contest closed because I didn't want anyone posting picks trying to win last place...

Thanks again to JOCKO699 for providing the last place bonus and for having the idea for this contest from the start, as well as seeding it GENEROUSLY with its initial funding.

GOOD LUCK ALL in the remaining races.
