$2,500 Derby Dollars Contest: Sign Up Now and Make Your Picks for This Weekend’s Races
Our Derby Dollars Contest, presented by West Point Thoroughbreds, is going strong, but there's still time to get involved and take your shot at $2,500 in cash prizes!
The Derby Dollars Contest is free to enter and open to residents of the U.S. and Canada. Sign up at DerbyDollarsContest.com anytime during the contest period, which culminates with the Kentucky Derby on May 3. After registering your name and a working email address, you'll be ready to make a selection in this week's challenge races – Saturday's Tampa Bay Derby and San Felipe Stakes.
All of the races in the Derby Dollars Contest are from the schedule of 3-year-old qualifiers that make up the official Road to the Kentucky Derby point standings. We're only three races into the schedule, so there's still time to get on board and take your shot at winning the grand prize of $1,500 for having the highest theoretical bankroll after the Kentucky Derby. Prizes will also be awarded for second ($500), third ($250), fourth ($150), and fifth ($100).
During the Derby Dollars Contest, participants build their bankrolls based on mythical “across-the-board” (win-place-show) bets on their picks in each designated race. The first races feature mythical $2 across-the-board wagers. Then, corresponding with the Road to the Kentucky Derby point standings (when qualifying points double, starting with the March 29 Florida Derby, UAE Derby and Louisiana Derby), participants make $4 across-the-board wagers. The final race in the Derby Dollars Contest – the Kentucky Derby – raises the stakes even higher, with a mythical $6 across-the-board wager for all participants.
