It's that time again ... Back by popular demand, everyone is cordially invited to participate in the third annual ZATT Breeders’ Cup Survivor Contest. We’re bringing back the most popular contest of last year and doing it again on Zipse at the Track … and the last person left standing will be the big winner! The rules are simple: Pick one horse in each BC race as your survivor selection, if that horse finishes 1st, 2nd, or 3rd you survive and move on to the next race. The person who survives the longest will be crowned ZATT’s 2012 Champion.
As you may recall, I like to add a little strategy to the contest, so you are only allowed to pick the morning line favorite in one race in a row. In other words, if you pick the morning line favorite in the first race, you are prohibited from picking the morning line favorite in the next race, but could go back to the chalk in the third race, and so on. In the event of a late scratch, it is dependent on the player to have either listed an alternate choice, or submit your new survivor selection prior to post time. In the event of a tie, the player who picks the most winning horses will be declared the winner. If still tied, total payoffs for the winning horses will be the final tie-breaker.
The 2012 Champion will take their deserving place on ZATT’s Hall of Champions beside last year’s Survivor superstar Mike Tartaglia, aka mjtags11. The winner will also have the option of authoring a guest blog on Zipse at the Track on a racing subject, and at a time, of their choosing. Be fair warned though, it will not be easy ... I'm playing in this one! All entries should be made as a comment on this blog, must include your name, and be submitted by Friday at 12pm Pacific. Have fun and good luck to all!
