Derby Dollars is Back: Free to Play, Sign up Now!

February 18, 2016 · By Dawn Lenert · Share

Beginning Saturday, Feb 20, it's time to sharpen your handicapping skills and find your Derby horse!

West Point Thoroughbreds – the Gold Standard in Racing Partnerships – and 123bet.com – home to the daily competitive 123racing Pick6 wager – is teaming with the Paulick Report for the third consecutive year to bring you the Derby Dollars Contest, a free handicapping challenge offering cash prizes on the road to the Kentucky Derby.

To enter this free contest, set up a username and password, and for complete contest rules, go to:

DerbyDollarsContest.com

Participants in the $2,500 Derby Dollars Contest, presented by West Point Thoroughbreds and 123bet.com, build bankrolls based on mythical “across-the-board” (win-place-show) bets on their picks in designated races that correspond with the schedule of 3-year-old events making up the official Road to the Kentucky Derby point standings. As the qualifying points in the races increase, so do the size of the mythical wagers.

The winner is determined by the highest total bankroll after the Kentucky Derby on May 7. Prizes are $1,500 for first place, with $500 for second, $250 for third, $150 for fourth and $100 for fifth. It is free to enter and open to residents of the United States and Canada.

Free past performances for each of the Derby Dollars Contest races are provided by Brisnet.com.

The Derby Dollars Contest begins Saturday, Feb. 20, with the Risen Star Stakes from Fair Grounds in Louisiana, and continues over the next 10 weeks, culminating with the Kentucky Derby.

“This is a fun contest which can engage new individuals introduced to Thoroughbred racing every year leading up to the Triple Crown,” said Terry Finley, president of West Point Thoroughbreds. “Playing the Derby Dollars Contest provides an incentive to keep up with the spring prep races and connects people to the intriguing, intertwined horse and human stories shared each spring. Last year's Triple Crown winner brought new fans to our great sport, and Derby Dollars can help them find their favorite horse to support this season.”

“The contest format proved very popular with our 123racing fans the last two years, and Derby Dollars provides Paulick Report readers a chance to pit their wits against each other and in groups,” said Rob Earle, CEO of 123racing and 123bet.com.  “Once signed up, players can create a ‘Friends' network, private groups, and view leaderboards using a ‘Friends Only' filter to really find out who's boss.”

123racing will also offer some free wager promotions for players around the big races at 123bet.com.

“It's free. It's fun. It's easy,” said Paulick Report publisher Ray Paulick. “Play it!”
