Think you have what it takes to obtain the title of Last Handicapper Standing? Our Stakes Challenge will have you go up against your fellow handicappers as you compete to achieve the highest mutuel payout total for WPS over the course of several stakes races.

 

How To Play:

Submit your selections with the link provided on the website prior to post for the qualifying race you have chosen to play for each round of the listed stakes races, along with a $2.00 WPS bet on your selection.

 

Only a *single entry and $2.00 WPS on one race per round will count toward the contest. Ex: If my selection for the first round of the Razorback Classic is in race 6, then that is the only race I need to submit an entry for and place $2.00 WPS for that round. If my play doesn't hit the board or doesn't play well, I can attempt to play another race in that round for a bigger payout. The last entry submitted for a single stakes race is what will count toward the contest. If there are 3 qualifying races on the same day at 3 separate tracks, I can play one at each track to count toward the contest.

 

Each contestant must submit an entry and successful $2.00 WPS wager on any/all rounds of the individual stakes races listed in order to be eligible to win. Any entry without an accompanying $2.00 WPS bet for a selection will not count toward the contest.

 

Runners may vary for each round. The goal of the Stakes Challenge will be to achieve the highest overall cash accumulation for the selections submitted for each listed stakes race. 

Standings will be based on the mutuel payout of the $2.00 win, place and show on the greyhound selected. Ex: $2.00 win pays $5.40, $2.00 place pays $3.20, $2.00 show pays $2.40, the contestant receives $11.00 on the Leaderboard.

 

Maximum cash accumulation to go toward the contest for win = $42.00, maximum for place = $22.00, maximum for show = $10.00.

 

Account holders will be allowed to change their selection on any given qualifying stakes race up until post time. The last entry submitted will be the one counted toward the contest, disqualifying any previous entries for that specific stakes race. Because of this, scratched runners will not count toward the contest. There will be no favorite replacements for scratched runners.

 

All players must submit their selections before entries close for each specified qualifying stakes race. Selections may be made as soon as the entry form is posted on the Greyhound Channel website. Typically this will be one to two days prior to the beginning of each qualifying stakes race. Each entry will automatically close at post of each qualifying stakes race. The last selection submitted is final.

 

 

 

 

Notification & Winner’s List:

A Leaderboard will be posted and updated throughout the stakes challenge on the following day after each listed race day. A winner’s list will be posted on the Greyhound Channel website no later than one week after the contest.

 

Winners will be based on total overall cash accumulated by the end of the last stakes race listed. In the event of a tie, the winner will be selected by a random drawing.

 

Winners will be notified by email or phone and will be required to wager the total amount awarded to them at least once prior to withdrawal.
