Will You Survive ZATT’s Breeders’ Cup Contest???

Calling all Breeders’ Cup Players! You are all cordially invited to participate in the Second 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 2011 Champion.

 

To add a little strategy to this game, 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 dependant 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 2011 Champion will take their deserving place on ZATT’s Hall of Champions beside last year’s Survivor superstar Matt Shifman. They 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 1pm Eastern. Have fun and good luck to all!
