Saratoga and Del Mar kicking off their summer meets; DerbyWars tournament
action is in full swing this weekend to bridge the gap.
Topping the weekend tournament schedule is the $10,000 Saturday Tournament featuring

Colonial Downs. The first place prize will be $5,000 and the contest pays down
to fifth place. Entries for the contest officially close at 5:15pm EDT but the

The American Oaks (GI) and A Gleam Handicap
(GII) from Betfair Hollywood Park.

(GIII) from Colonial Downs.

and American Derby (GIII) from Arlington Park.
The last ‘Super-Qualifier’ will take place on Friday
evening. Players can compete in the qualifying contest to vie for 10 of seats
to the $10,000 Saturday Tournament. The entry fee for the ‘Super-Qualifier’ is
$35 and is limited to 58 participants; entries officially close at 5:30pm but
capacity may be reached before that time.
Qualifying tournaments for the $10,000 Saturday
Tournament will continue into early Saturday afternoon and will be posted on
the homepage game board.
As the first DerbyWars NHC Qualifier on August 3 draws
nearer, this weekend will feature two more prequalifying events awarding seats
into the that contest. Both prequalifying events have reached the maximum
number of allowed entries.
The first three prequalifiers to secure seats in the
August 3 DerbyWars NHC Qualifier were Tom Anderson (“Yagli”), Matt Milligan
(“TracksideJive”) and Bill Downes (“BillyD”). The latter two are competing in
both prequalifiers this weekend, looking to secure seats in the August 10
DerbyWars NHC Qualifier.
New chances to prequalify for DerbyWars NHC Qualifiers
will return next week. They will be posted on the homepage game board and will
be announced via email, Twitter & Facebook.
Saturday’s sensational smorgasbord of stakes races will
be strung together in a $600 Graded Stakes Survivor Tournament. The goal will
be to select horses to successfully finish ‘on-the-board’ in each of the seven
designated graded stakes races to advance to the next round. The last player(s)
standing will win the $600 kitty.
The contest features a low entry fee of just $9 and is
perfect for all players, especially those which may be new to DerbyWars or are
considering the first leap from ‘points’ games to ‘cash’ games. Eighty players
will vie for survival through the seven race contest.
