 1      THE CONDITIONS

The purpose of the 2011 Handicapping Contest project is to compare, contrast and

provide industry executives a benchmarking tool for handicapping contests. A total of

91 racetracks, casinos and on-line websites that offered contests in the last five years

were selected to participate in the survey. Various thoroughbred, harness, greyhound

racetracks and on-line websites were sent the survey via email. The casinos surveyed

were located in Las Vegas and the author of this project personally visited 33 Race &

Sportsbooks. He met with sports book directors and managers to complete the surveys.

47 of the participants expressed an interest in receiving a copy of the results. The

author of this document is a senior in the Race Track Industry Program at the University

of Arizona and completed this work for his capstone project. Being an avid lifelong

racing fan, the author had a high interest in the topic of this project since handicapping

is his favorite part of the game. Furthermore, a project of this nature has not been

conducted since 1999 and requires updating to reflect current rules and regulations.

This project explores the most up to date information on handicapping contests and is

exceedingly in depth regarding today’s handicapping contest.




                                                                                             1
HISTORY: The early form of handicapping contests may date back to 1974, with the

World Series of Handicapping (WSH) at Penn National. Charley Eckman, a legendary

Radio Sportscaster for the Baltimore Orioles, the Baltimore Colts, and Thoroughbred

Racing’s World Series of Handicapping Speaker Extraordinaire, is credited with giving

the event great coverage. On September 17, 1987, Delaware Park advertised a contest

named in his honor.




 Penn National’s WSH, the first major contest of its kind; consisted of professional

horseplayers as well as amateurs. The three-day event attracted handicappers from all

over the country who qualified in earlier preliminary rounds at the racetrack. The field

was comprised of seeded public handicappers, authors and sports personalities with

over a hundred contestants. Andrew Beyer, the speed figures genius of the Washington

Post, entered the 1978 World Series as the post-time favorite. Picking winners is only

part of the game; money management, mainly determining how much to bet on a race

and whether to bet to win, place or show becomes a critical factor. The WSH once

awarded a $100,000 first prize to winners. Now, the DRF and the NTRA has joined

together to host a championship contest in Las Vegas each January, since 2000.

                                                                                           2
Executive Summary

  The project is laid out to give the reader informational and statistical data regarding

contests/tournaments held in recent years. It outlines rules and regulations of the

different venues which play host. Handicapping contests offered through casinos and

racetracks have declined in recent years. Las Vegas casinos offer qualifying contest

because of the DRF/NTRA National Handicapping Championship and the Horse

Players World Series (HPWS) held by Coast Casinos. Racetracks have changed the

way contests are now conducted. Current economic conditions make for a situation that

has become less feasible to host as many of these contest unlike past years. There is

no longer a breakeven point and costs have virtually risen dramatically with significant

profit loses. In general, contest players are not your big bettors; therefore small residual

benefits, if any are generated.

 Handicapping contest, however are exciting to handicappers and a great part of

measuring their abilities against the best from around the country. On-line websites

have become the wave of the future. Easy sign-up and log-in procedure makes things

convenient and provides more economical means of playing for contestants. The on-line

host sites provide players’ good prize money and spots to both the NHC and the HPWS.




                                                                                            3
 2     PAST PERFORMANCES

In 1999 a senior in the Race Track Industry Program at the University of Arizona

completed a capstone project entitled “A Survey of Track Handicapping Contests Rules-

Suggestions-Potential.” This project conducted a 9 question survey from 22 participants

that consisted of Las Vegas Race & Sportsbook, Thoroughbred, Harness and

greyhound racetracks. Three professional handicappers were also interviewed. The

data gathered centered on entry fees, number of contestants, and betting format.

Suggestions were made to reach goals of handicapping contests that include customer

satisfaction, revenue and new customers. The study then supplied copies of rules from

the various participants. Given the small number of participants in the survey and the

broad range of contest diversities offered to date, the past project is determined to be

out-dated in presenting a true picture of handicapping contests.

 7      I THINK I PICKED A WINNER
  In 2002, I participated in the Fair Grounds handicapping contest. The entry fee was

$200 and the top three qualified for a seat in the DRF/NTRA National Handicapping

Championship. The wagering format was $2 mythical win/place bets, capped at 20-1 for

win and 10-1 for place bets. I was green and did not have any strategy, just simply filled

out the betting slip with my selections and quickly handed it in. For two days there were

ten mandatory bets and ten bets based on the player’s choice. I placed all bets at the

teller window before the races started and then came to realize that patience is

extremely important. Periodic checks of the leader board would have been an

advantage. I had a 30-1 horse that ran third beaten by a neck for top honors, but what I

really needed was a horse to win or place. I was outdistanced in this contest because I

honed in only on long shots mainly 20-1or greater. Big mistakes were made and being

green, like a first-time starter contributed to poor results. During 2006, while living in

Las Vegas, I once entered a contest at the Excalibur. It was a locals contest with a $10

entry fee that offered $2 quinella wagering on all Southern California races for that day.

There was a nine race card and players bet quinellas on all of the nine races. The

highest net total of the quinella pay-off would be declared the winner. Cash prizes were

awarded for first place, $250, second place, $150 and third place $100. There were

over one hundred players and I did not finish well, never in contention, the comment

lines would have read. I was not a quinella player, but joined the contest when I saw it

advertised while walking through the casino.


                                                                                             106
 On several occasions, I would enter the Thursday contest held at THE Orleans with a

$10 entry fee. Players would make mythical $2 win/place bets on the first five races run

at Southern California. Although the cap for win was 20/1 and the place at 10/1, I found

this contest to be unique because a player could end up with the highest overall total

without having won all five races. There were times when a player hit all five races only

to finish second or third because their win and place tally was lower than that of players

who correctly selected two or three winners. Redemption was served from humiliating

loses previously, as I constantly placed in this event. THE Orleans reminded me of my

home town New Orleans. It was enjoyable with a great atmosphere and I was always

playing in the zone. The sports book attracted many local players who were extremely

friendly. I also played some on line contests, like Public Handicapper.com, where the

player had four to six stakes races for that Saturday to make selections. The contest ran

May to October and there are one hundred races with a minimum of sixty required for

play. All of the bets are $2 to win. I did not play this contest enough for there to be any

value. The overall winner receives a trophy, a tee-shirt, $500 cash and a qualifying seat

in the NHC. I have also entered Del Mar and Santa Anita’s contests on line. The Del

Mar Contest was this summer and it was a free online contest with a selected race each

day where “The Surf meets the Turf.” The player receives a $100 mythical bankroll to

play each day however they desired. There was a variety of ways to make selections,

such as win, place, show or using multiple horses. If the player loses the money for that

day, the amount of the wager was subtracted from their account. The overall winner

would be awarded a spot to the NHC. I was not consistent at playing and there were


                                                                                        107
many days where I simply forgot to make my selection. Throughout the contest, I had

maintained a negative balance, but three longshot winners changed all that instantly

and I finished in the top 15%. Santa Anita held a free online contest where the player

had to make a selection each day, by picking any race on the card. As long as their

horse finished in the money, the player advanced to the next day. This contest required

daily play on one horse, and a hit- the-board finish or else face elimination. If a selection

was failed to be made, like in my case, then the player was also eliminated. I consider

myself to be a solid handicapper, yet results early on as a contest player was below my

standards. The handicapping contests are enjoyable, rewarding and many friendships

are made because of them. The best advice I can offer is to become extremely patient

and selective, stick firmly to your own style of plays, and have a game plan. Institute

scripted plays like an NFL head coach at the start of a football game. There were high

hopes for me in ever contest I entered and confidence that I had picked the winner.




                                                                                          108

On September 11, I visited Las Vegas to obtain the survey data required from casinos

to complete the project. A tour of 33 Race & Sportsbooks in five days was necessary to

personally speak with managers and supervisors. It quickly became apparent that there

are just not many casinos groups or casinos now offering handicapping contests. The

MGM/MIRAGE Group and Caesars Entertainment comprise of 60% of the strip and

their clientele are high-end sports bettor. Cantor Gaming has recently become a big

force in Las Vegas and this casino group including the “M” Resort, Venetian and

Palazzo caters also to heavy sports betting. Players looking to enter a handicapping

contest in racing may not be found at any of these properties. The results show that

Coast Casinos, Stations Casinos, the Las Vegas Hilton, South Point, Treasure Island

and Wynn Las Vegas still go out there way to provide a great environment for their

racing fans. My favorite contest among these properties was the South Point Six held

on Thursdays with a $20 entry fee. It offers a player the opportunity to create their own

Pick 6 from all races at four selected contest tracks. Should the player be lucky enough

to select six winners, they would win a progressive jackpot much like a Pick 6 Pool.

Among contests offered by racetracks and on-line websites, I was most intrigued by the

Del Mar Internet contest. It is a free entry contest where contestants are given a daily

$100 “theoretical bankroll” for win, place, show or multiple horse wagers from a single

contest race. There are 37 possible races from which players have a choice on how

they will play the $100 each day. Bets placed on incorrect selections are subtracted

from the players account. The idea here is to teach money management techniques.


                                                                                       109
During an internship at Ellis Park in Henderson, Kentucky, I had the pleasure of working

for Ron Geary, the track’s owner and CEO. I quickly learned that Mr. Geary is an avid

handicapper and enjoys competing in qualifying DRF/NTRA contests. He begins his

quest for qualifying in the NHC upon completion of Ellis Park’s race meet. Ron Geary

does not consider himself to be a gambler, but he loves handicapping among the

nation’s best for an opportunity to qualify in the National Handicapping Championship.

Mr. Geary qualified in 2010 at the Lone Star Park contest and entered the 2011 NHC

held at Red Rock Casino in Las Vegas. Ron was the leader up until the last race, when

he was caught at the wire and lost the grand prize by a nose. He came in 2nd place and

won $150,000 cash. Ron Geary was open to talk about his contest adventures, but did

not disclose information about his strategies. He has a 10-point check-list that he strictly

follows and only pursues selections that fit his own check-point system.

self- service, wagering terminals, players are advised to locate those machines early
and determine their seating accordingly.
CONTEST FORMAT
  The Contest features live-money wagers on all open Hawthorne Race Course
(“Hawthorne”) pools. Should races from Hawthorne be unavailable for Contest
purposes, Contest Officials will announce races to be used for that day's Contest.
Preference will be given to Churchill Downs, Inc., racetracks. (For the May 14 final
round, races from Arlington Park (“Arlington”) will be used.
  The player may only place wagers on simulcast races from Hawthorne (live races
from Arlington on May 14). Should a player place a wager on any other racetrack than
specified, for the purposes of scoring he/she will forfeit the amount wagered on that
outside track, not receive points for any winnings on such wager, and will still need to
fulfill the Contest requirements for wagering on Hawthorne races (Arlington races on
May 14). Should the wager on the outside track prevent the player from fulfilling
Contest requirements, the player will be disqualified.
  The player must wager on a minimum of five Hawthorne races (Arlington races on
May 14), chosen by the player, on a Contest day, but can choose to wager on more,
even all, Hawthorne races that day (Arlington races on May 14). Only the first leg of
multiple-race wagers counts toward the five-race minimum.
  The player must wager a minimum of $50 in Contest wagers on a Contest day.
  Winnings may be re-invested which means there is no maximum total to be wagered
on a Contest day.
  There are no minimum or maximum wager sizes.

counts as one race-wager toward the five-race Contest requirement.

account balance at all times.
  Horses grouped in an entry, a field, or coupled will run as one selection.
  Official track rules and regulations shall apply to Contest wagers.

  The Contest ends at the conclusion of the last race from Hawthorne on that Contest
day (Arlington races on May 14)

have added funds to their card will be disqualified from the Contest.
  For the purposes of scoring, players that place wagers that result in a payout that
requires tax paperwork to be filed (a “signer”) will be awarded points for the gross
payout before taxes. Players with a signer are urged to start the paperwork process
as quickly as possible in order to be prepared to wager on the next Hawthorne race if
that is the player's plan.

WAGERING PROCEDURES
 Each contestant will receive a numbered Contest wagering card, assigned to him/her,
when they register each Contest day.
 All Contest wagers must be placed by the player, using his/her Contest wagering
card, at cash-accepting, self-service terminals at each Contest site.
 Wagers cannot be placed using a teller/mutuel clerk.
 All players are responsible for ensuring that each wager is placed correctly and that
their wagers have been accepted by the tote system, regardless of the circumstances.
  Players are advised to print a receipt for each contest wager.
  All wagers must be placed personally, and in-person, at the contest site, by the
registered player. No person shall, directly or indirectly, act as an intermediary,
transmitter or agent in placing wagers for the player, unless prior written authorization
is given by Contest Officials.
  Official program numbers shall be used when placing all wagers.
  If a horse is scratched after a wager is placed, it is the player's responsibility to
change his/her selection prior to the start of the race subject to all other Contest
wagering rules.
  If a wager is not cancelled and the race goes off, the contestant may collect the refund
and wager on another race. In this instance, the refunded wager will not count against
Contest requirements.
  In the event the scratch occurs in the final race of the day, and the contestant does
not cancel his/her selection, the contestant will not be disqualified for not meeting the
race minimum, but instead will be awarded $0 on the final race in place of the refund.

POINT TABULATION
  Players accrue points based on the pari-mutuel payouts of Contest wagers.
  The player at each location amassing the highest number of points/dollars based on
the player's beginning bankroll plus earnings (i.e. the highest final bankroll from all
Contest wagers at the end of the Contest) will be the first-place winner. Successive
placings are in accordance with official final standings.
  The player across the entire Illinois Trackside network amassing the highest number
of points/dollars based on the player's beginning bankroll plus earnings (i.e. the highest
final bankroll from all Contest wagers at the end of the Contest) will be the winner of the
weekly bonus prize. Successive placings are in accordance with official final standings.
  Players receive one point per dollar, and points will be broken into fractions
corresponding to cents. For instance, a player with an ending balance of $125.65 will
receive 125.65 points.
  In the event of a tie, the higher placing will go to the player that has the highest return
on his/her investment, i.e., the player who made the lower dollar amount of wagers to
achieve the same balance. If a tie still remains, the player with the highest number of
winning wagers (defined as the highest number of wagers that pay out, not the number
of winning horses) will win. If a tie still exists, the player with the highest winnings on
one race will win. If a tie still exists, the winner will be determined by a random draw
among the tied players.

RESULTS
 All results are unofficial pending verification that all wagers were made in accordance
with Official Rules. Upon such verification, the winners will be announced. Winners will
be notified, and may be required to submit paperwork to Arlington Park in order to
receive his/her prize(s). Certain prizes cannot be paid until contest paperwork is
received by Arlington Park.

the races designated as part of the Contest will be ineligible to wager on such races. All
Players with an interest in an entry shall identify themselves to contest officials who will

ELIGIBILITY
• All Players must be at least eighteen (18) years of age by the day of each contest

p.m. (CT) on contest date.
• The official start time of the contest will be 11:00 a.m. (CST) on contest date.

SEATING
• There is no reserved seating for contestants. As this contest will feature live money
contest wagering cards that are accepted at any cash-accepting self service terminal,
contestants are welcome to sit in any area of the facility for which they have a ticket.

CONTEST FORMAT
• The contest will feature live money wagers to be placed through contest wagering
cards only.
• The contest allows for wagering on all open Woodbine Race Course pools.
• The player may only place wagers on live racing at Woodbine Race Course. Should a
player place a wager on any track other than Woodbine Race Course, for the purposes
of scoring, he/she will forfeit the amount wagered on that track, not receive points for
any winnings on said wager, and will still need to fulfill the minimum race requirements
for wagering on Woodbine Race Course. Should the wager on another track prevent the
player from being able to fulfill the contest minimums, the player will be disqualified and
receive a $0 score for the day.
• The player must wager on a minimum of five Woodbine Race Course, chosen by the
player, on the Contest day, but can choose to wager on more, even all, Woodbine Race
Course races that day.
Only the first leg of multiple-race wagers counts toward the five-race minimum.
• Each player will begin with a live bankroll of $50 and will have the option to purchase
another entry of $50 (maximum total of two entries per player).
• Each player must wager a minimum of $50 per entry in contest wagers on the day, but
may re-invest monies earned from winning wagers. For instance, if a player places a $5
win wager on the first race of the day that pays $15, the player may add the $15 to
future contest wagers placed. If a player places a $50 bet on the first race of the day
and loses, the player is unable to meet the five race minimum, and is disqualified from
the contest, receiving a $0 score for the day. Failure to wager the $50 minimum per
entry for the day will also result in disqualification from the contest and a $0 score for
the day.
• Horses grouped in an entry or coupled will run as one selection.
• Official track rules and regulations shall apply to contest wagers.
• Official track rulings shall apply to horses wagered in the Contest.
• Players keep all winnings from contest wagers placed.
• Bankrolls are live and may be cashed at the end of the Contest. Players are
encouraged to transfer remaining balances to their Twin Spires Club Account Wagering
Cards.
• The contest ends at the conclusion of the last race from Woodbine Race Course on
contest day.
• A contestant may not add additional funds to their contest cards. Any player found to
have added funds to their card will be disqualified from earning prize money and
qualification points.
• For the purposes of scoring, players that place wagers that result in a payout that
requires tax paperwork to be filed, will be awarded points for the payout before taxes.

WAGERING PROCEDURES
• Each contestant will receive an assigned wagering card when they check in on
each contest day.
• All wagers must be placed through the player’s contest card at self service terminals at
host Trackside OTBs. Wagers cannot be placed with a teller.
• All players are responsible for ensuring that each wager is placed correctly and that
their wagers have been accepted by the tote system.
• All wagers must be placed personally, and in-person, by the Player. No person shall,
directly or indirectly, act as an intermediary, transmitter or agent in placing wagers for
the Player, unless prior written authorization is given by contest officials.
• All Players must use their wagering card to place a wager.
• Official program numbers shall be used when placing all wagers.
• If a player wagers on a track other than Woodbine Race Course for purposes of this
contest, the player will not receive credit for said wager.

SCRATCHES
• If a horse is scratched after a wager is placed, it is the player’s responsibility to change
his/her selection prior to the start of the race subject to all other contest wagering rules.
• If a wager is not cancelled and the race goes off, the contestant may collect the refund
and wager on another race. In this instance, the refunded wager will not count against
contest requirements. In the event the scratch occurs in the final race of the day, and
the contestant does not cancel their selection, the contestant will not be disqualified for
not meeting the race minimum, but instead awarded $0 on the final race in place of the
refund.

POINT TABULATION
• Players accrue points based on the mutuel payouts of contest wagers.
• The Player amassing the highest number of points based on the Player’s earnings
(i.e. the highest final bankroll) from all contest wagers at the end of each contest day will
be declared the winner of the specific contest.
• Players receive one point per dollar, and points can be broken into fractions. For
instance a player with an ending balance of $40.35 will receive 40.35 points.
• In the event of a tie, the contestant with the highest number of winning wagers
(defined as wagers that payout, and not number of winning horses selected) during the
contest will win the spot. If the tie still remains, the contestant with the highest winnings
on one race will win. In a tie still remains, the winner will be determined by a random
draw among the eligible contestants.

RESULTS
• All results are unofficial pending verification that all wagers were made in accordance
with Official Rules. Upon such verification, the winners will be announced. Winners will
be notified, and may be required to submit paperwork to Arlington Park in order to
receive his/her prize(s). Certain prizes cannot be paid until contest paperwork is

one-time annual NTRA membership fee of $45 in order to be eligible to compete at the
National Championship. Contestants may opt not to purchase the $45 annual NTRA
membership, but they would then be competing in qualifying tournaments for purse money
only at the qualifiers, and not for the available berths in the NHC Finals. NHC berths at a
given qualifier will only be available to those who are paid NTRA members prior to the
start of competition at a qualifying tournament. Please contact the NTRA directly if you
have any questions or concerns regarding these stipulations.

In the event of a tie, the following tie-breaking rules will be used to decide the three-member
Belmont travel team:

   4.      Highest number of winning wagers over the two-day tournament.
   5.      If a tie still exists, highest-priced winner over the two-day tournament (based on $2
           win payoff).

*NYRA will reimburse airfare for our Las Vegas qualifiers, at a maximum of $450 round trip.
Per NTRA regulations, if a contestant has already qualified for the Las Vegas team via
another NHC tournament, they must arrange travel and reimbursement through that
qualifying entity.

EQUIBASE HANDICAPPING TOURNAMENT

1. ELIGIBILITY

(a) The Equibase Handicapping Tournament (the “Tournament”) is offered only to natural persons who
are legal residents of the United States of America and its territories who are at least 18 years of age and
to natural persons who are legal residents of Canada (except Quebec) who have reached the age of
majority in their province of residence at the time of entry, in all cases unless otherwise prohibited by law.
Additionally, the Tournament is only available to such persons who register to participate and who have a
valid e-mail address. There is no cost to participate in the Tournament, nor any obligation to purchase
any product. Employees and directors of Equibase Company LLC (“Equibase”) and its parent and
subsidiary companies and the immediate family (spouse, mother, father, sister, brother, daughter or son,
regardless of where they live) or members of the same households (whether related or not) of such
employees and directors are not eligible. By entering a Tournament you agree to these Official Rules and,
where necessary, decisions of Equibase which are final and binding in all respects.

(b) All applicable federal, state, provisional, and local laws and regulations shall apply to each
Tournament.

2. HOW TO PLAY

(a) There are two types of Tournaments:

(1) One starting and ending on the same day (“Same-Day Tournament”), and

(2) One made up of various “rounds,” with the top finisher in each qualifying round advancing to a
championship round (“Rounds Tournament”).

(b) Equibase may conduct none, one or more Same-Day Tournaments and none, one or more Rounds
Tournaments.

(c) The goal of any Tournament is to achieve the highest bankroll by making mythical $2 wagers to win
and place in each designated Tournament race.

(d) For each correct selection in a Tournament race, a player will earn an amount equal to the $2 win
payoff and the $2 place payoff for a selection that wins the race; or the $2 place payoff for a selection that
finishes second; as if such player were making an actual money wager. There is, however, no actual
currency wagered in any Tournament and Tournament wagers will not be placed into any pari-mutuel
system. The maximum payoff on any single Tournament race is $42 for a win wager and $22 for a place
wager. All monetary values are stated in U.S. dollars.

(e) For Same-Day Tournaments, prizes will be awarded to the top five finishers.

(g) For Rounds Tournaments, prizes will be awarded to the top five finishers in each qualifying round and
such finishers shall also advance to the championship round. Although a player may participate in each
qualifying round, a player may only finish in the top five finishers once for the purpose of advancing to the
championship round. In any qualifying round where a player would otherwise advance to the
championship round a second time, the next qualifying finisher will advance to the championship round
instead. In the event of a tie for any of the top five finishers in any qualifying round, all players finishing in
the tie will advance to the championship round without regard to the number of players so qualifying.
Players, however, may win prizes for their top five finishes in each round.

(h) Additionally, with respect to Rounds Tournaments, the following players that have not otherwise
qualified to advance to the championship round will advance to the championship round:

(1) The top 10 players with the highest total number of winners selected (without regard to payoffs)
throughout a Rounds Tournament, and

(2) The top 10 players with the highest cumulative payoffs throughout a Rounds Tournament,

(i) In the event of a tie for any of the 10 additional spots noted in 2(h)(1) or (2) above, all players involved
in the tie will advance to the championship round without regard to the number of players so qualifying.

(j) In Rounds Tournaments a player may participate in all of the qualifying rounds occurring subsequent to
such player’s registration, but it is not a requirement..

(k) All terminology used herein that is vernacular to horse racing, including, but not limited to, “win,”
“place,” “wager,” “post time,” “coupled, “ “also eligible,” “scratched,” and “favorite” shall be construed in
accordance with generally accepted Thoroughbred industry standards as determined, in good faith, by
Equibase.

time, such player will be given the post-time favorite as a substitute selection.

Free Online Handicapping Tournament Aug. 13
By Blood-Horse Staff
Updated: Saturday, August 6, 2011 8:21 AM
Posted: Friday, August 5, 2011 12:44 PM

The “Sovereign Stable Handicapping Challenge,” a free, online handicapping tournament, will take
place on Saturday, Aug. 13. The top finisher will receive a guaranteed berth in the $2 million
(estimated) Daily Racing Form/NTRA National Handicapping Championship presented by
Sovereign Stable next January in Las Vegas.

The Sovereign Stable Handicapping Challenge requires contestants to place hypothetical $2 win and
place wagers on 10 designated contest races on Aug. 13. The 10 contest races will be chosen by
tournament officials on Thursday, Aug. 11, and are scheduled to be selected from the Aug. 13 cards
at Saratoga Race Course, Monmouth Park and Del Mar (contest tracks subject to change).

The player amassing the highest number of points based on the players’ earnings (i.e. the highest
final bankroll) from all $2 win and place wagers at the end of the Challenge will be declared the
“Grand Prize Winner” and receive a berth in the NHC.

The winner will also receive a $250 air travel voucher and hotel accommodations at Treasure Island
Las Vegas, site of the NHC. Additional prizes will be awarded to the second- and third-place
finishers. Prospective competitors need not be NHC Tour members in order to register, though they
must be signed up as an NTRA Inside Track member.

“Our Sovereign Stable partnerships have enabled many people to experience the unique thrills of
racing. Competing in the National Handicapping Championship has become another coveted
opportunity within the sport, and we hope everyone will register for our tournament and take their
shot at the $1 million prize up for grabs at Treasure Island Las Vegas next January,” said Sovereign
Stable president Matt Gatsas.

identifying players and preventing duplicate entries. Multiple entries from one household are
authorized but multiple entries from one email address are not allowed. All personal data
collected is subject to Cap2Win privacy policy.

In order to be eligible to play, players must be a registered user with Cap2Win and at least
21 years of age, and a legal resident of the United States of America. Provided, however, no
player may participate while residing in a jurisdiction in which the contest is forbidden.
Cap2Win will determine player eligibility and reserves the right to remove players it deems
in its sole discretion that are not eligible. Cap2Win may disqualify and remove a player at
any time.

In addition to the above, to be eligible for the monthly prize, a player must enter twelve
(12) entries in a given month.

Players do not need to be US citizens to play; however, no prizes will be awarded to players
outside the United States and such player's results will not be considered in determining the
winner of the contest.

All federal, state and local laws and regulations apply and may place additional restrictions
on contest rules and/or eligibility.

NOTE; Notwithstanding the foregoing, employees of Cap2Win, as well as members of their
immediate families or households, are not eligible to win any of the prizes described in
these Rules. All prizes described by these Rules are void where prohibited by law.

If a winning player is determined to be ineligible, prizes will be awarded to the next person
in order of the contest standings
Playing the contest

All entries must be made through the website at www.cap2win.com.

Eligible tracks will be determined by Cap2Win in its sole discretion. These eligible tracks will
be listed via drop down menu and may be changed at any time by Cap2Win. Players must
choose from available tracks in the dropdown menu on the contest website. Players may
make picks from any available track in the menu.

Horses will also be chosen from drop down menu. Players may not enter more than one
horse per race. Races are typically first available in the Cap2Win drop down menu between
48 and 24 hours prior to post time.

Deadline for entries for any given race is 15 minutes prior to post time. This will be
controlled by the contest website automatically.

A calendar month is the duration of each monthly contest. In any given month, the contest
begins with the first race at all eligible tracks on the first day in the calendar month and
ends with the last race at eligible tracks on the last day on the calendar month. In the event
of technical difficulties or race cancellations on the last day (or days) of a calendar month,
the winner will be determined by the current standings when racing ended for the month.

In the event of technical issues with the site, players must check back frequently and enter
picks when the site is available again. If a player has a problem accessing the site, email
entries or phone entries cannot be accepted.

In the event of a scratch, the horse may still show as available in the drop down menu
players can still choose this horse. If the horse does not start, the entry will not be
considered for contest standings.

Twelve entries per month are required to be eligible for prizes. A player may make up to 40
entries per calendar month. All entries will count towards the player's monthly ROI and
standings, as well as All-Time ROI and standings.

If an entry is made in error, it cannot be reversed or invalidated. So please make sure
before you submit an entry. Results are updated each night. If a payout is reported
incorrectly, please report it to the contest administrator at emailto: support@cap2win.com.
Reports of errors must be made within 48 hours of the time the race was run.

All single race payoffs will be capped at $50. This will reduce the tendency of players to go
for long shots. A cap on payoffs is common in handicapping tournaments as it is believed to
improve the overall play and competitiveness of the competition.

No more than four contest entries can be made by a player on any given day.

All entries, along with all copyright, trademark and other proprietary rights associated there
with, become property of Cap2Win and may be used for marketing purposes.
Winning the contest

Contest winner will be determined by highest ROI at the end of the last day of racing in a
calendar month. ROI is determined by taking all contest entries of the player for that
month, adding up the win payoffs from those entries, and dividing by the number of picks X
2$. This figure represents the Return on Investment (ROI).

In the event that two (or more) players are tied at the end of the month, the tie breaker will
go to the player who made their last included entry soonest in the month. In other words, if
one player's twelfth included entry was made by the 25th of the month and the other
player's twelfth included entry was made on the 27th, the first player would be named the
winner.

A player may win the contest more than once.

mail and website posting within 18 hours. E-mail notifications will be sent to the e-mail

The top six official finishers will each receive entry into the 2012 DRF/NTRA National Handicapping Championship in
Las Vegas, courtesy of Breeders' Cup Limited. A $500 travel stipend will be awarded to each person to cover hotel
and other expenses for the DRF/NTRA event. If for any reason one of the top six official finishers cannot attend or
has already qualified for the NHC, the next highest placing contestant will receive the entry and travel stipend. Only 6
NHC spots and 6 travel stipends will be awarded. Depending on a particular situation, Churchill Downs and Breeders’
Cup may assign an alternate qualifier. This is an official NHC Tour event and players earn Tour points in accordance
with Tour rules and policies. Players must be Tour members to earn Tour points. It is the NHC Tour Member’s
responsibility to notify tournament officials that he or she is a member of the Tour before the start of the Breeders’
Cup Betting Challenge.
5. PLAYER CARDS:
Each participant will be issued a player card to be used for all tournament wagers. This account-wagering card
contains the “real money” bankroll of $7,500. Upon receipt, participants should test the card in self-service machines
to become familiar with placing wagers and insure it is working properly. If a player loses his/her card or the card is
not working, the player should immediately report to Tournament officials to resolve the problem. Players must make
only tournament wagers on their contest card.




6. PLACING WAGERS:
All wagers must be placed through self-service machines. Wagers will not be accepted through mutuel tellers.
Players must place all wagers personally. No person shall directly or indirectly act as an intermediary, transmitter or
agent in placing wagers for the player, unless authorized by tournament officials. All official track rulings will apply to
wagers placed in the Tournament except as otherwise stipulated. The tournament will be based on the official
placement and mutuel prices at Churchill Downs. If a player wagers on a track other than Churchill Downs for
purposes of the contest, the player will be disqualified.




7. IRS WITHHOLDING:
If winnings less the wager exceed $5,000 and if the winnings are at least 300 times the amount of the wager, IRS
withholding will automatically be deducted from the player’s card. Whereas, for contest scoring purposes, the gross
amount of the winning wager will be recorded in the player’s score. Please note for purposes of wagering in the
contest, only the net amount (the amount received after the IRS withholding) will be available to the player.




8. SCRATCHES:
If a horse is scratched after a wager is placed, it is the player’s responsibility to change his/her selection prior to the
race subject to all other contest wagering rules. In the event a player is not able to change his/her selection due to a
late scratch (within 10 minutes to post) which prohibits the player from wagering on the minimum amount of races on
Friday or Saturday, the player will have the amount not wagered, up to the required per race, deducted from the
player’s final Challenge score. However, this amount will not be deducted from the player’s personal bankroll. No
penalties will be assessed on player wagers involving any horses ruled as non-starters by stewards.




9. TIES:
In a result of a tie between any of the top ten finishing positions, the prize money will be divided equally among the
players involved. If there is a tie for sixth place and final NHC Championship berth, the player with the most money
earned in the Classic (last Challenge race) on Saturday will be declared the winner. If there is still a tie, the most
money earned in the second to last race on Saturday, etc., until a winner is declared.
10. CONTEST STANDINGS:
Officials will endeavor to post the standings after each race of the tournament on Friday and Saturday. Issues related
to IRS withholding, late scratches or other matters could delay the posting of the scores. All standings are unofficial
until the final results are audited and posted. Players are encouraged to maintain an accurate record of their wagers
and scoring.




11. AGE INELIGIBILITY / DISCLOSURE:
Players must be at least 18 years of age to participate in the Breeders’ Cup Betting Challenge. Players must be at
least 21 years of age to participate in the 2012 National Handicapping Championship (NHC) in Las Vegas. If a player
will not be 21 by the start of the 2012 NHC, the next highest BCBC finisher will take his/her place. The following are
ineligible to participate in this contest: Churchill Downs employees or any of its subsidiaries; members of the
Kentucky Racing Commission; licensed trainers; employees of United Tote, Breeders’ Cup Limited and the National
Thoroughbred Racing Association. If anyone has any ownership interest in any horses running in any of the
applicable tournament races then all involvements must be fully disclosed in advance to tournament officials.




12. TAXES:
Liability for any and all federal, state, and local taxes is solely the responsibility of prize winners.




13. AFFIDAVITS:
Affidavits confirming compliance of all the rules of this contest will be required of all players. All prizewinners
acknowledge that if they enter this contest under a fraudulent name and/or Social Security number, they will be
immediately disqualified from this and all future contests held by Churchill Downs. Positive identification is required of
all prizewinners. Positive identification is a valid government issued ID with a picture and the same address and birth

14. JUDGING AND DISPUTES:
The management of Churchill Downs and Breeders’ Cup Limited reserve the right to interpret all questions and
conditions in regard to this event, without claim for damages or recourse of any kind. The management of Churchill
Downs and Breeders’ Cup will decide all questions and definitions covered and not covered explicitly in these rules

The Tournament: DRF Bets

DRF Bets Tournament League is a competition in which any competitor whose total mutuel payoffs exceeds all
other competitors’ total mutuel payoffs in the monthly qualifying competitions to be held October 2011 (as further
identified below), will earn a trip to Las Vegas and a seat in the Daily Racing Form/NTRA National Handicapping
Championship to be held on a consecutive Friday and Saturday in January 2012 (the specific dates of which will be
selected by NTRA in its sole discretion); These rules shall be updated with the precise Daily Racing Form/NTRA
National Handicapping Championship dates once they are available to publish.
Players must register for the competition online at www.drf.com/bets, or through use of the Contest Wager Pad by logging in to
their account at www.xpressbet.com. There are no entry or registration fees to compete in the DRF Bets Tournament League.
Players need to register only once, and will then be eligible to compete in all subsequent months’ competitions.
To compete during a monthly competition, Players must use the Contest Wager Pad to make a single, online, “live” $2 Win wager
on one (1) horse in any competition race during that month. Players may also, but are not required to, make online, “live” $2 Win
wagers on the remaining competition races during that month. Competition races are defined as DRF’s “Race of the Day” every
Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday during each of the contest months. Player accounts will be credited with
winnings for all competition wagers and debited for all losing wagers.
Identification of the Race of the Day, and information about the race will be available online at www.drf.com/bets for the entire
month of the current contest, not later than the day prior to the first competition.
Only online wagers on the Race of the Day submitted on the Contest Wager Pad are eligible for competition. Wagers placed using
the traditional Non-Contest Wager Pad or Wagers placed by telephone do not qualify.
Players may compete each month in the DRF Bets Tournament League but may win only one seat to the DRF/NTRA National
Handicapping Championship and only one trip to Las Vegas. This prize is non-transferable and not redeemable for cash. If the first
place finisher has already won a seat to the 2012 DRF/NTRA National Handicapping Championship, either through the DRF Bets
Tournament League or another NHC qualifying tournament, the Grand Prize will be awarded to the Player whose total mutual
payoffs during that monthly competition exceeded the total mutual payoffs during that month for all competitors other than the first
place finisher.
If a monthly Grand Prize Winner becomes unable to fill the seat at the 2012 DRF/NTRA National Handicapping Championship at any
time prior to January 25, 2012, all portions of the prize must be rescinded and the entire Grand Prize package will be awarded to
the Player whose total mutual payoffs during that monthly competition exceeded the total mutual payoffs during that month for all
competitors other than the first place finisher.
The 2012 DRF/National Handicapping Championship is a separate event run by the NTRA and entry into the DRF Bets Tournament
League does not constitute entry into the 2012 DRF/National Handicapping Championship. DRF Bets is not, and shall not be
deemed, responsible for any aspect of the 2012 DRF/NTRA National Handicapping Championship, including any offering of or
obligation to award or pay prizes in connection therewith. Under NHC rules applicable to the 2012 DRF/National Handicapping
Championship, a player must be a member of the NHC Tour to compete in that competition. Thus, if you plan to compete in the
National Handicapping Championship, you must become an NHC Tour member prior to registering for the DRF Bets Tournament
League, and you must enter your Tour number at registration. Players can sign-up for the NHC Tour at NTRA.com. There is a one-
time annual $45 fee to join the NHC Tour.
To win the Grand Prize in a monthly competition, a Player must exceed all other competitors’ total mutuel payoffs during that
monthly competition (cited below) in order to earn a seat in the Daily Racing Form/NTRA National Handicapping Championship and
other cash/prizes as described below.
In addition, Runner Up Prizes, as described more fully below, will be awarded to the nine Players whose total mutual payoffs during
that monthly competition exceeds the total mutual payoffs during that month for all competitors other than the Grand Prize Winner.
Limit: One (1) Prize per player.
For Tournament scoring purposes, mutuel payoffs on winning selections will be capped at 20-1.
To Enter:
Participants must register for the Tournament League by following instructions on www.drf.com/bets and provide their account
number, name, email address (twice) and telephone number. Participants must have a DRF Bets or XpressBet account in good
standing. One (1) account per person. One (1) registration per person.
To Play:
Registered entrants must place a single $2 “live” Win wager online, on one (1) horse in any of the Race of the Day races identified
on the DRF website in each month they compete. Players may also, but are not required to, make online, “live” $2 Win wagers on
the remaining competition races during that month. Competition races are defined as DRF’s “Race of the Day” every Wednesday,
Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday during each competition month. Registered entrants must use the Special Contest Wager
Pad via their online wagering accounts to place contest wagers in order for the wagers to be eligible. Wagers submitted via the
usual, Non-Contest wager pad will not count in the competition.
Wagers on scratched horses earn zero in the competition. If a player notices that his horse is scratched in a particular race he may
submit a $2 Win wager on another horse in that race before wagering closes for that particular race. The player must use the
Special Contest Wager Pad to submit all tournament plays including replacement plays for scratched horses. Once a late scratch is
processed by tote, the Special Contest Wager Pad will be available for submission of replacement wagers on scratched horses.
Entries must be made in accordance with these Official Rules; any other attempted form of entry will NOT be accepted. Any use of
robotic, automatic, macro, programmed or like call-in or registration entry or wager methods will void all such entries by such
methods, and result in disqualification of any entrant using such methods.
Qualifying Round Dates:
Starts on the first eligible day of October and includes each Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

                   2011 Del Mar Handicapping Challenge
                                Saturday, July 30 & Sunday, July 31
                                      RULES AND REGULATIONS

1. Bankroll: This is a “real money” Handicapping Challenge. Players will be required to put up a $5,000
bankroll for Challenge wagers plus $1,000 for the prize pool for a total of $6,000. At the conclusion of the
Challenge, any dollar amount remaining in the bankroll – whether it grows to $20,000 or falls to $100 – remains
the property of the player. This is a contest of skill to determine the Del Mar Handicapping Challenge winner.
2. To Enter: There is no entry fee to participate in any phase of this Challenge. However, a non-refundable check
for $1,000 is required to confirm a spot in the Challenge. The $1,000 player deposit is used for the prize pool. The
$5,000 player bankroll is due by July 20. If the remaining balance is not paid, the $1,000 deposit will be forfeited.
The Challenge is limited to only 50 players. The first 50 deposit checks received by DMTC will determine who
plays in the Challenge. Only one entry per person is allowed. No partner entries permitted.
3. Format: Challenge races will include the entire card from Del Mar on Saturday, July 30 and Sunday, July 31
only. Wager types permitted are Win, Place, Show, Exacta, Trifecta and Superfecta only. All other wager types
are not permitted and subject player to disqualification. A MINIMUM OF $500 MUST BE BET PER RACE ON
AT LEAST 5 RACES ON BOTH SATURDAY AND SUNDAY. Should a player fail to bet the required
minimum number of races (5) at the minimum wager amount ($500) required on Saturday’s card, 1,000
Challenge points (at one point per dollar) will be deducted from the player’s total Challenge score per missed
race. Should a player fail to bet the required minimum number of races (5) at the minimum wager amount ($500)
on Sunday’s card, the player will be disqualified and any remaining balance will be returned. A PLAYER THAT
BETS MORE THAN FIVE RACES EACH DAY MAY BET LESS THAN $500 ON OTHER CHALLENGE
RACES AS LONG AS THE PLAYER BETS THE REQUIRED $500 ON FIVE RACES EACH DAY. There are
no maximums – players may bet as much as they want, including winnings from their original bankroll, whenever
they wish. The player with the highest Challenge score after the last race on Sunday is the First Place winner.
4. Prizes: First Place- $40,000; Second Place- $20,000. The top FIVE finishers will represent Del Mar in the
Daily Racing Form/NTRA National Handicapping Championship (NHC) in Las Vegas in January 2012. To be
eligible to win a berth in the NHC, players must be registered as a paid NHC tour member prior to the beginning
of the challenge. Qualifiers must be in attendance at the NHC on each day of the event. If one of the top five
finishers cannot attend or has already qualified for the NHC, the next highest placing finisher will receive the
entry. Depending on a particular situation, DMTC in cooperation with the NTRA may assign an alternate
qualifier. Players agree to abide by these determinations. A $700 stipend will be awarded to each qualifier for
hotel and travel expenses for NHC.
5. Player Cards: Each participant will be issued a player card used for all wagers. This card contains the “real
money” bankroll of $5,000. Upon receipt of the player card, participant should test card to insure it is working
properly. If a player loses his/her card or the card is not working, the player should immediately report to contest
officials in the 6th floor Native Diver skyroom to receive a new card. Please keep your wagering card away from
cell phones, which can demagnetize the card.
6. Placing Wagers: All wagers must be placed through self-service machines. Wagers will not be accepted
through mutuel tellers. Players must place all wagers personally. No person shall directly or indirectly act as an
intermediary, transmitter or agent in placing wagers for the player, unless authorized by DMTC Tournament
Officials. All official track rulings will apply to wagers placed in this Challenge except as otherwise stipulated.
The Challenge will be based on official placement and mutuel payoffs at Del Mar. If a player wagers on a track
other than Del Mar for purposes of the contest, the player will be disqualified.

7. IRS Withholding: If winnings less the wager exceed $5,000 and if the winnings are at least 300 times the
amount of the wager, IRS withholding will automatically be deducted from the player’s bankroll. For Challenge
scoring purposes, the gross amount of the winning wager will be recorded in the player’s score. Please note for
purposes of wagering in the contest that only the net amount (the amount received after the IRS withholding) will
be available to the player for future wagers.

8. Scratches: If a horse is scratched after a wager is placed, it is the player’s responsibility to change his/her
selection prior to the race subject to all other contest wagering rules. In the event a player is not able to change
his/her selection due to a late scratch (within 10 minutes to post) which prohibits the player from wagering on the
minimum amount of races on Saturday or Sunday, the player will have the amount not wagered, up to the $500
required per race, deducted from the player’s final Challenge score. However, this amount will not be deducted
from the player’s personal bankroll. No penalties will be assessed on player wagers involving any horses ruled as
non-starters by stewards.

9. Ties: In a result of a tie for first or second, prize money will be divided equally among the players involved. If
there is a tie for fifth place and final NHC Championship berth, the player with the most money earned in the last
Challenge race on Sunday will be declared the winner. If there is still a tie, the most money earned in the second
to last race on Saturday, etc., until a winner is declared. Only a total of five entries to the National Handicapping
Championship will be given away.

10. Contest Standings: Officials will endeavor to post the standings after each race of the tournament on
Saturday and Sunday. Issues related to IRS withholding, late scratches or other matters could delay the
posting of the scores. All standings are unofficial until the final results are audited and posted. Players are
encouraged to maintain an accurate record of their wagers and scoring.
11. Eligibility: Players must be at least 18 years of age to participate in the Del Mar Handicapping Championship
and at least 21 to qualify for the National Handicapping Championship in Las Vegas. If a player is not 21 by the
start of the NHC, the next highest finisher will take his/her place. In the event a finalist is unable to participate in
the National Championship event, the next highest placed finalist will proceed. The following are ineligible to
participate: Licensed Trainers, employees of the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club, NTRA, Premier Foods, Inc., or

the immediate families of the foregoing. Horse owners must declare ownership of all horses entered in any Del
Mar Handicapping Challenge race to contest officials at check-in before the first race on Saturday, July 30.
12. Taxes: Liability for any and all federal, state, or local taxes is solely the responsibility of prizewinners.

For a race to count for the minimum number requirement, you must "wager" at least $20.
(Your "wins" or "losses" will still be tabulated if you "wager" less than $20, however the race
will not count towards your minimum number of races to qualify for prizes.)
PRIZES

GRAND PRIZE: The overall top finisher for the 2011 season contest will receive a trip to Las
Vegas and an entry into the NTRA/DRF National Handicapping Championship (NHC) in Las
Vegas in January 2012. A $700 stipend will be awarded to cover hotel and travel expenses
for the NTRA/DRF NHC.

Del Mar Thoroughbred Club will send one qualifier to the NHC. The qualifier must be in
attendance at the National Championship on each day of the event. If the top finisher
cannot attend or is not eligible for the grand prize, the next highest placing qualifier will
earn a place. Depending on a particular situation, the local venue in cooperation with the
NTRA may assign an alternate qualifier. Players agree to abide by these determinations.

ALTERNATE GRAND PRIZE: Eligibility of finalists for the National Handicapping
Championship shall be established by NTRA and DRF and shall apply to the National
Championship event. Contest participants must be at least 21 years of age. If the top
finisher is not eligible to participate in this contest, he/she shall receive a trip to two to Del
Mar on closing Labor Day weekend 2012. The prize includes two nights' hotel
accommodations, round-trip air transportation from any airport American Airlines flies out of
in the contiguous 48 states.

There will also be weekly prizes for the top ten handicappers and end-of-season prizes for
the top 100. These prizes are selected at the discretion of contest management and may or
may not be announced in advance.

This contest prize structure is only available to residents of the United States, Canada, and
Mexico. Residents of other countries may participate "for fun," but are not eligible to win
any prizes. Eligible contestants must also be at least 18 years of age (21 years of age to be
eligible for a spot in the NTRA/DRF Contest). Void where prohibited by law. No purchase is
necessary.

There will be no substitution of prizes and no cash paid in lieu of stated prizes.

A total of 37 races will be available for the contest in total beginning Wednesday, July 20
and ending Wednesday, September 7. One race per day will be available. In general, the
race will be a feature race--or another race on the card that deemed to offer a more
interesting handicapping challenge. If there are two stakes run in a single day, the contest
race will generally be the later of the two. Management reserves the right to select any race
as a contest race.

Contest races will be available for participant entry as soon as possible. There are no
guarantees of a minimum time a race will be available. Generally speaking, however, races
will be available within a few hours of entries being drawn and posted to the Internet.
However, due to the vagaries of electronic delivery, some races may be available sooner
than others, and some may not be available at all. Because contest races may be open
before the program is finalized, contest numbers will often not match program numbers.

If, for some reason, a race is not made available, the contest administrators reserve the
right to reduce the minimum entry eligibility requirements. Decisions of Del Mar
Thoroughbred Club and SelectNet Internet Services in this and all other matters relating to
the conduct of the contest are final.

                          2011 Firecracker Handicapping Contest


1.      THE CONTEST: HOLLYWOOD PARK
The Firecracker Handicapping Contest is a two day contest to be held Sunday, July 3 and
munday, July 4, 2011. This is a “real money” Handicapping Contest. Each player will begin with
a $2,000 player bankroll. This $2,000 is a cash buy-in made directly by the player using his own
money. Each player will receive a special Firecracker handicapping contest card that will be
funded by his initial $2,000 investment. Using this card, for round one, each player must wager a
minimum of $100 on every race on Hollywood Parks Sunday racing card, July 3, 2011. Only
wagers on Hollywood Park races will count for the contest. These wagers must be placed using
the Firecracker card in any self service machine.
PLAYERS MUST PARTICIPATE IN ROUND ONE ON SUNDAY, July 3, 2011 TO BE
ELIGIBLE TO PARTICIPATE IN ROUND TWO ON MUNDAY, July 4, 2010.
For round 2 of the contest, each player must again wager a minimum of $100 on every race on
Hollywood Park’s races Munday, July 4, 2011. Only wagers on Hollywood Park races will count
for the contest and these wagers must be placed using the Gold Cup card in any self service
machine. Any deviation to this wagering schematic will result in disqualification.

There are no maximum amounts of bets or number of Hollywood Park races in this contest, only
minimums. Players may bet as much as they want, including winnings from their original
bankroll, whenever they wish. However, if the player’s total bankroll falls below the minimum
bet per race, the player is out of the Firecracker Handicapping Challenge. (For example: If a
player wants to bet his entire $2,000 in the first race at Hollywood Park Sunday, he is allowed to
do so. However, if his return for that race is under $100 he will not be able to meet the criteria
for subsequent wagers and will be out of the tournament.)

WAGER TYPES
The following are the wagering types allowed in the contest:
Win, Place, Show, Exacta, Quinella and Trifecta.

Contest headquarters will be the Sunset Room located on the 4th floor in the Turf Club. This
room will be a special Tournament area for both contest days and only participants will be
allowed into this area.
At the conclusion of the Contest, any dollar amount remaining in the bankroll – whether it grows
to $100,000 or falls to $10 – remains the property of the player.

from the player’s final score. However, the money will not be deducted from the player’s
personal bankroll.

CONTEST PLAY AND DAILY SELECTION
This is a contest of skill. Contest play applies to each contest day beginning September 30, 2010.
To remain eligible in the game beginning with the opening day of the contest, the contestant
must, for each Contest Race Day, correctly select, at least ten (10) minutes prior to that day's first
post time, one (1) runner per each day's race card that earns a top-3 placing. All contestants
selecting a top three finisher are eligible to select a horse for the next race day to continue in the
contest. A contestant is eliminated from contest play upon failing to select a horse finishing first,
second or third on any Contest Race Day.
In the event of a dead heat for third position, every horse involved in the dead heat will be
considered a top-3 finisher. If a contestant's selection is scratched from a race, the contestant will
receive the post time favorite in that race. If the post time favorite is a coupled entry, the
contestant's selection is deemed to include both of the coupled horses for that race and the
contestant is awarded the highest finishing position of the entry.
In the event that part or all of a race day is cancelled for any reason, the entire field of
contestants advances to the next race day.

WINNER SELECTION
Winner will be determined within one week after the closing day of the game. Winning entry
must confirm identity, residence and eligibility to receive prize. The winning contestant will be
either the person who selects a top-3 finisher from the beginning of the game through the
duration of the game or the final contestant remaining when all other participants have been
eliminated from the game. If no entrant successfully completes the game's duration, if multiple
entrants are eliminated on the same race day, or multiple entrants complete the game's duration
successfully, the game will be considered a tie between those multiple entrants. In the event of a
tie there will be a tie breaker to determine the winner.
The criteria for the tie breaker is as follows:
First: The contestant who has selected the most winning horses during the meet. If a tie still
exists, then
Second: The contestant who has selected the most second-place finishers during the meeting. If a
tie still exists, then
Third: The final tie breaker will be the highest show price payoff recorded during the contest.

Rules
ELIGIBILITY:
Players must be 21 years of age or older in order to play.

As this is an Internet-based contest website, entries will only be accepted through the
online entry and selection form. No faxed, mailed, electronically mailed or telephone entries
are allowed.

Players must observe the national law of his/her country regarding possible lottery and
gambling prohibitions. If uncertain of such progibitions, players must seek clarification
before entry.

CANCEL/REFUND and TRANSFER POLICY:
IMPORTANT: Once a deposit is made, players may not withdraw funds from account
balances unless expressly approved in writing by HorseTourneys.com management.

CANCELLATIONS: Players may cancel a purchased entry for a particular contest up to
TWO HOURS before the closing time of the contest. Cancelling an entry is subject to a 10
percent cancel fee (i.e., 90 percent of the entry fee purchased will be returned to your
account balance). Please note that this is necessary to prevent manipulation of contest
pools and protect the integrity of the contests, but has been provided for player
convenience. Cancellation activity will be closely monitored, and abuse of the
cancellation privilege will result in the revoking of player accounts.

Aside from this cancel policy, there are no refunds permitted for any reason. Transfers
of entries from one player to another player are also not permitted.

CONTEST PLAY/SELECTIONS:
HORSE RACING CONTESTS: Mythical $2 Win/Place wagers ($2 to Win and $2 to Place)
will be made on the horse a player selects in each race. Only one horse may be selected per
race. If a player's horse wins, the player collects on both the Win and Place wagers. If the
horse finishes in a Place position, the player collects only on the Place wager. All wagers and
payouts from races are mythical and will be used as a score only.
Horse mutuel prices used for the purposes of scoring contests will be those from the United
States tote system.

PAYOUT CAPS (HORSE RACING ONLY)
HORSE RACING CONTESTS: There is a cap on both the Win and Place wagers. The
maximum payout on a Win bet is $42 (20-1 odds) and the maximum payout on a Place bet
is $22 (10-1 odds).

LATE SCRATCHES
In the event of a late scratch (i.e. at the gate), players will be assigned their Alternate pick,
if one has been selected. If an Alternate pick also scratches or has not been chosen, the
Primary horse will be replaced with the post-time favourite for that race. Selections WILL
NOT RE-OPEN after closing due to a late scratch.

RACE/EVENT CANCELLATIONS
75 percent of the race events that comprise a contest must be completed to constitute an
official contest. If at least 75 percent of the individual race events in a particular contest
have been completed, the contest will constitute a complete and official contest and will be
scored according to the remaining events. If less than 75 percent of the contest events have
been completed, and three (3) or less of the individual races have been completed, the
entire contest will be canceled and rescheduled for a later date. If less than 75 percent of
the contest events have been completed, and four (4) or more individual contest events
have been completed, the completed events will be retained for scoring purposes, with the
balance of contest races added at a later date.

TIEBREAKERS
Should there be a tie in earnings that will affect major placements (such as for qualifying
spots or NHC Tour points), ties will be broken in accordance with the following procedures:
(a) the entry(s) with the most number of winners selected will win the tie; if a tie still
remains, then (b) the entry(s) selecting the horse with the highest mutuel WIN payout will
win the tie; if a tie still remains, then (c) the entry(s) with the most number of PLACE
horses selected will win the tie; if a tie still remains, then (d) the entry(s) with the highest
mutuel PLACE payout will win the tie; if a tie still remains, then (e) the entry(s) with the
most number of SHOW (third place finishers that did not Win or Place) horses selected will
win the tie; if a tie still remains, then (f) the winning entry(s) will be determined by a
random draw among eligible entries.

SELECTION DEADLINES
Race selections will be closed as near to the actual "off" time of a race (i.e., gates open) as
possible. HOWEVER, IT IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED that players submit all selections
prior to the first race and then go back and edit as needed, at least 2-3 minutes prior to the
anticipated gates open time of the race. The Participant is 100 percent responsible for
ensuring that a contest wager has been accepted, regardless of the circumstances. Players
should pay close attention to the races schedules for all contests, as post times can change
throughout the day due to delays or other circumstances.
AUDIT PERIOD
There is a 48-hour audit period after the completion of each contest, for the purposes of
allowing for changes in the unlikely event of scoring errors or other circumstances. While
the leaderboard will display the final payout results immediately, these results will not be
official until the audit period is over. Players that have earned qualifying spots or other
prizes will be notified once the contest has been declared official.

       mythical $2 Win-Place wager on the selected horse in each contest race, based on

NHC TOUR SCORING


NHC Tour standings will be determined by the total of the TOP FIVE SCORES compiled by NHC Tour Members
over the course of the 2011 Tour season at each qualifying tournament designated as part of the 2011 NHC Tour.
Only the top five scores earned by NHC Tour members will be included in the season long point standings. For
example, if a Tour member receives ten (10) qualifying scores, only his/her best five (5) scores will count toward
the final point standings.


Tour points are earned by finishing in the top 10% of any qualifying tournament to a maximum of 30 positions. For
example, a tournament with 50 entries will award points to the top 5 scores; a tournament with 250 entries will
award points to the top 25 scores; a tournament with 500 entries will award points to the top 30 scores.
Individuals with more than one entry qualified for points in a qualifying tournament will earn points ONLY for their
highest finish.


Approximately 10% of entries, capped at a total of 30 entries regardless of the number of total entries, in each
tournament will earn points. For example, a tournament with 250 entries will award points to the top twenty-five
(25) scores.


Points are awarded only at tournaments which offer a qualifying spot to the NHC, however, in the case of
tournaments offering multiple rounds of play leading to a final in which there are no buy-ins, the total number of
points awarded at the final will be based on the total number of tournament entries in all rounds.

With regards to multiple entries at NTRA-sanctioned tournaments, only the highest score from a single
tournament will be counted toward NHC Tour standings. If a player has more than one in the money entry, only
the highest point total will be used for tour scoring purposes and all of the players below will be moved up one
position for scoring purposes.


The NHC Tour Member with the highest total points from his/her five (5) best tournaments as of December 31,
2011 will win the Grand Prize and be declared "2011 NHC Tour Champion."


When a tournament has 95 entries, the NHC Tour will award points to the top 10 percent which in this case will
round up to 10 places receiving points. If a tournament has 93 entries, the NHC Tour will award points to the top
10 percent which in this case will round down to 9 places receiving points.


Local Tournament directors will be required to turn in official scores following each tournament.


TIEBREAKER


If, on December 31, 2011, two (2) or more NHC Tour Members are tied for first place or there is a tie among NHC
Tour Members eligible for the ten (10) automatic berths to 2012 NHC, the following tiebreaker will go into effect:
The NHC Tour Member with the highest number of top ten (10) finishes from his or her top five scores (not most
points) will be declared the winner. For all other ties, prize money will be divided equally.


LEADER BOARD AND RESULTS


Standings, including the names of the NHC Tour Members and their total accumulated points, will be posted each
week on NTRA.com/NHCtour and can be obtained by sending a self-addressed, stamped envelope to:

NHC Tour Code of Ethics
Posted: Wednesday, February 17 , 2010


 CODE OF ETHICS FOR THE NATIONAL HANDICAPPING CHAMPIONSHIP ("NHC") AND NHC TOUR


 This Code applies to the NHC and NHC Tour, and all live and online qualifying contests for the NHC.
The Code is not intended to supersede the specific Rules of any handicapping contest, which govern in the event
in of any conflict, including but not limited to specific Rules which grant the Contest Director authority to make final
and binding decisions on all matters relating to a particular handicapping contest. Nor does this Code supersede
applicable law.


Each Player is personally responsible for understanding and complying with both this Code and the specific Rules
of any handicapping contest he or she enters. Each Player is also personally responsible for acting in a respectful
and appropriate manner toward Contest Directors and staff, and will comply with all reasonable requests and
decisions.


Each Player agrees to exhibit sportsmanship and to treat all fellow competitors with respect, and will refrain from
engaging in mean-spirited, vulgar or abusive language or conduct.


Each Player agrees not to engage in conduct which attempts to or does circumvent either this Code or the Rules
of any handicapping contest, and specifically agrees not to directly or indirectly engage in "collusion" as defined in
this Code.


"Collusion" includes all situations where a player, through proxies, "beards" or otherwise, controls and makes the
final decision on contest plays for a greater number of entries than permitted under the Rules of a handicapping
contest. Each player agrees that the Contest Director's decision on whether "collusion" occurred is final and
binding, and understands that the NTRA retains the right to determine who can compete in the NHC and whether
a player will earn Tour points.


The definition of "collusion" is not meant to include, and does not in any way prohibit or call into question, the
practice of husbands, wives, other family members, newcomers or friends attending and participating in contests
together, including but not limited to the joint handicapping or discussion of contest races. The Code recognizes
and encourages such conduct as a unique and beneficial aspect of handicapping contests and our sport, and is
only concerned with instances where a player is making the final decision or otherwise controlling plays on more
than the permissible number of entries.


Each Player agrees to use his or her best efforts to report violations of this Code and violations of the specific
Rules of a handicapping contest to the Contest Director at, or as close as possible to, the time when the player
believes the violation occurred. Players can also report such violations, and direct any questions they have about
the Code, by sending an email to: Michele Ravencraft at micheleravencraft@ntra.com.


Each Player agrees to act in a professional manner overall, doing his or her best to promote a positive image of
the NHC and handicapping contests.

3. DURATION


The Contest will begin with a race(s) run on Friday, May 6, 2011. Entries for the first race will be posted on
PublicHandicapper.com no later than Thursday May 5, 2011. The Contest will include a minimum of 100 races,
the last of which -- the Breeders' Cup Classic -- will be run on Saturday, November 5, 2011. In order to qualify
for prizes, Contestants must play a minimum of 60 races, including all eight Breeders' Cup Races listed on the
card for the official Breeders' Cup World Championships being held on November 5, 2011. [Please note, we do
not play the 6 Breeders' Cup races on Friday, November 4.] New registrations made after Saturday August 6,
2011 will not be eligible for grand prizes (as there will be less than 60 races left to handicap), but will be eligible
for monthly and weekly prizes. All of the rules contained in these "Official Rules" apply to the 2011 edition of the
PublicHandicapper.com Challenge only, and not any past or future contests featured on PublicHandicapper.com.


4. HOW TO PLAY


Each week, usually, but not always, on Friday morning, "This Week's Races" ("Races") will be announced via
email to all active players, and on the PublicHandicapper.com Web site. The Races will be thoroughbred horse
races scheduled to take place on the following day at a racetrack of the editors' choosing. The Race information
will include the names of the horses scheduled to run, the jockeys, and estimated track odds.
PublicHandicapper.com accepts no responsibility for the accuracy of the pre-race information. In most cases,
two of the Races will be the featured Races of the Week on the Daily Racing Form website, www.drf.com.


Each player in the Contest will review and handicap the Races and decide whether or not to play in that week's
Contest. (In order to qualify for prizes, players must participate in a minimum of 60 races, including all nine
races listed on the card for the official Breeders' Cup World Championships being held on November 5, 2011.)
[Please note, we do not play the 6 Breeders' Cup races on Friday, November 4.] If opting to play the Races, a
player will then choose the horse he or she believes will finish first, second, and third in each race, and, using
the "Player Picks" form, post those picks live on the Public Handicapper Web site. (Players may play all, some,
or none of the races.)


For each Race handicapped, the player will place a hypothetical $2 win bet using PH Money (the bet is made
automatically when the picks are posted). If a player's first place selection wins the Race, he or she will have his
or her player account credited with PH Money equivalent to the track price on a $2 win bet for that horse, minus
the $2PH initial hypothetical wager. If the player does not pick the winner, his or her account will show a loss or
debit of $2PH ($2.00). The credits and debits will accrue from week to week. The player with the most PH
money in his/her player account at the end of the Contest ("Winner") will win. Only first place ("Win") selections
count in the Contest.


In the event that a player's first place horse scratches out of the Race, it will be replaced by the second place
horse. If the first and second place horses scratch, they will be replaced by the third place horse. If all horses
scratch, the player will have no selection that week.


Players must place all wagers personally. No person shall directly or indirectly act as an
intermediary, transmitter or agent in placing wagers for the Player, unless authorized by the local
venue and for good reason shown.


PublicHandicapper.com reserves the right to remove any player whose account has been inactive for six or more
weeks.


5. ODDS CAP


No winning horse will pay out at odds of more than 30-1. High priced longshots can skew results, putting
consistent handicappers at a disadvantage. Any horse paying more than $62 to win at the track, will pay exactly
$62 in the Public Handicapper.com Challenge.


6. PRIZES AND WINNER


The player finishing in first place wins:


         A Trophy
         A check for $500
         A one-year standard subscription to the Daily Racing Form Online PPs (in Formulator 4 *or* PDF
          versions)
         A Public Handicapper.com T-shirt


Players finishing in second through fifth places will also win a free three-month subscription to Daily Racing
Form Online PPs (in Formulator 4 *or* PDF versions), and a Public Handicapper.com T-shirt.

most PH money) wins entry into the 2012 DRF/NTRA National Handicapping Championship (NHC IX)

trip to Las Vegas, NHC Tour members must be signed up and registered for the NHC Tour AND Public
Handicapper by May 6, 2011. No entries will be accepted after May 6!!!!


In the event of a tie (two or more players, that are both eligible to win, have the same amount of PH money in
their PH accounts), the players will split the prize appropriate to the place in which they finish. If there is a tie
among the top two players or qualifiers, the number of winning selections will be used as a tie-breaker. (The
player that selected the most winners will win the tie-breaker.)
The qualifying entrant for the DRF/NTRA National Handicapping Championship must be in
attendance at the National Championship on each day of the event. If that qualifier cannot attend,
the next highest placing qualifier will earn a place. Depending on a particular situation,
PublicHandicapper.com in cooperation with the NTRA may assign an alternate qualifier. Players
agree to abide by these determinations.


Eligibility of finalists for the National Handicapping Championship shall be established by NTRA and
DRF and shall apply to the National Championship event.


If the top finisher has already qualified for the National Handicapping Championship, the 2nd place
finisher will qualify, and so on.


NHC Tour Points will be awarded in accordance with NHC Tour Official Rules (top 10 percent contest). NHC Tour
points will only be awarded for exact placings. For example, if the top NHC Tour member is 5th, he or she will
win a trip to Vegas, and will have 1225 points added to their total.


The winner of the NHC spot is responsible for any expenses related to the prize, including any applicable tax,
insurance, etc. Total prize package is valued at approximately $5,000 US Dollars. PublicHandicapper.com
reserves the right to substitute different prizes of equivalent value.

PublicHandicapper.com Web site and in an email to all registered players on or before November 17, 2011.

total of win bets won will be declared the winner. If the players tied have the same number of
win bets won, the most money from win bets will be declared the winner. If there is still a tie,

eligible for The NTRA/Daily Racing Form National Handicapping Championship.

Approximately $2,000,000 in prize money will be available with the individual winner to receive
both $1,000,000, and NTRA Handicapper of the Year honors at the 2012 Eclipse Awards.

New this year per the NTRA: All contestants at qualifying tournaments must have paid a one-
time annual NTRA membership fee of $45 in order to be eligible to compete at the National
Championship. Contestants may opt not to purchase the $45 annual NTRA membership, but they
would then be competing in qualifying tournaments for purse money only at the qualifiers, and
not for the available berths in the NHC Finals. NHC berths at a given qualifier will only be
available to those who are paid NTRA members prior to the start of competition at a qualifying
tournament. Please contact the NTRA directly if you have any questions or concerns
regarding these stipulations.

Aqueduct travel team:

   7.      Highest number of winning wagers over the two-day tournament.
   8.      If a tie still exists, highest-priced winner over the two-day tournament (based on $2
           win payoff).

*NYRA will reimburse airfare for our Las Vegas qualifiers, at a maximum of $450 round trip.

another NHC tournament, they must arrange travel and reimbursement through that
qualifying entity.

HOW TO PLAY

The goal of the contest is to earn the largest bankroll (ROI) in the designated contest races for each tournament. In
this contest, players purchase an entry ticket(s) and select one primary horse to place a mythical $2 Win/Place bet for
each designated contest race. Each entry begins with a mythical starting bankroll. For each correct selection a player
will earn the $2 Win and/or Place mutual payoff. The maximum return on any single race is $52 for Win and $26 for
Place. The player with the highest accumulated bankroll (ROI) will be the Winner. The bankroll is based on mythical
$2 Win and Place wagers on mandatory races. All Winners will be required to provide a legally valid identification and
eligibility release tax forms in order to claim a prize.

    4.    The official final order of finish according to the host racetrack will determine the payoffs.
    5.    Only the designated contest races count toward a player's R.O.I., occurring after sign-up.
    6.    In the event that a contest race is cancelled and not run on the scheduled date, regardless of reason, that
          race will be withdrawn from the contest, even if it is made up at a later date. TwinSpires and/or its affiliates
          reserve the right to change the contest schedule and rules without notice, or cancel the contest due to
          unforeseen events.
    7.    While each player may earn or purchase a maximum amount of entries per tournament (3 for the
          Satellites and $50 Saturday tournaments, 2 for the month ending tournaments, $100 Sunday
          Championship Satellite tournaments, November Championship Satellite Tournaments and $1,000
          Nov. 19 Championship), there is no cap on the number of total entries in each tournament. Total
          entries will determine the prizes awarded.
    8.    The Leaderboard will be updated on the contest website as soon as possible at the end of each designated
          contest race. It is the responsibility of the player to bring any alleged error, issue, or complaint to the
          attention of TwinSpires within 48 hours of the end of the contest by sending an email to
          lucky.kalanges@twinspires.com and describing the alleged error, issue or complaint in detail. If TwinSpires
          is not contacted within 48 hours of the end of the contest, TwinSpires is not responsible for making
          adjustments to the official order of finish or granting entry fee credit.
    9.    Final Cash Prize pools are based on contest participation.
    10.   The winner of the online contest will be the contestant with the highest accumulated bankroll over the course
          of all contest races.
    11.   In the event there is a tie between two or more players in a satellite tournament for the final spot(s) to the
          $50 Saturday tournament, then those players will share the prize money equally. For example, if a satellite is
          scheduled to award 60 seats to Saturday, but there is a three-way tie between 59th, 60th, and 61st places,
          then TwinSpires would award 58 seats and those three players would share the remaining prize value and

          Online Handicapping Championship. If a player who has already won the maximum of two entries into the
          Nov. 19 event places high enough to earn another free entry, that prize will be forfeited and given to the next
          player in line. The player who forfeited the prize for the Nov. 19 tournament, due to already having the
          maximum entries allowed, would still win any additional cash prizes associated with placing in the
          tournament but would not receive value for the part of the prize forfeited.
          In the event there is a tie between two or more players for the final spot(s) to the $200 Saturday
          tournament, an entry into the Nov. 19 Championship, or involving a prize for a trip to Las Vegas, the
          following tie breakers will be used (in order): most winners, most top 2 finishers, highest win payoff, 2nd-
          highest win payoff, 3rd-highest win payoff, most top 3 finishers. If there is still a tie, contestants will (at
          TwinSpires' discretion) either receive the prize, share the prize equally, or will be invited to participate in a
          "playoff". If a tie still exists after using the finish positions of all selections, the highest total odds of all
          selections (among those still tied) will be used to break the tie. In the event a tie is still not broken, the
          remaining players still tied may be asked to participate in a "playoff". TwinSpires will make the final decision
          on any disputes or unforeseen circumstances involving ties.
    13.   Sunday Championship Satellite Tournaments and November Championship Satellite Tournaments. If
          a player who has already won the maximum of two entries into the Nov. 19 Championship places first,

          awarded the cash equivalent of the TSOHC seat ($1,000). In the event there is a tie between two or more
          players for the final spot(s) to the Nov. 19 Championship, then those players will share the prize value

Receiving your “Card”/“Check-In”

During the Contest Period and prior to playing, each Contestant is required to present

Centre (“Check-In”). Contestants are advised to arrive early to ensure sufficient time to
Check-In prior to Post-time. The Contest Sponsor will not be held responsible for any
delays at the Contest Centre that results in missed races or wagers. Once Checked-In,
each Contestant will receive their Handicapping Contest Account Card (the “Card”) pre-
loaded with their bankroll. Default PIN# on every Card is 1234; the Contestant will then
be prompted to enter a new PIN upon first use of the Card at a Self-Serve Terminal.

4. CONTEST DETAILS

Contest will include all races of the full Contest Racetrack card (Race 1 through to the
last race on Contest date). There is no minimum or maximum requirement for the
number of races Contestants must wager on throughout the Contest. The Contest can
be played at any Tournament Venue. Each Contestant must wager with their Card(s),
which will have been loaded with the set starting balance (“Bankroll”) by the Contest
Sponsor. The Contestant who has the highest balance (the “Balance”) at the close of
the Contest is the winner of the respective Contest.

Contestants must use the Card to play the Contest, which will be provided by the
Contest Sponsor upon Check-In. The Card will be registered to the Contestant and the
bankroll will be loaded as per Section 3: How to Enter, Receiving your Card/Check-In.
There will be a separate Card issued to each Contestant for each Contest entry.
Contestants will use the Balance on the Card to make real bets on the Contest
Racetrack races at any self-service wagering terminals (“Terminals”) at any Tournament
Venue. Mutuel Tellers cannot accept ANY contest wagers. All bets and payouts are
real and placed into the appropriate pari-mutuel wagering pools. The five (5)
Contestants with the highest Balances on their Card at the end of the Contest are
eligible for the Prize Pool (as per Section 7: Winners & Prizing).

Each Contest is part of the overall Extreme Betting Series Tournament; however each
Contest is its own unique event. Each Contest’s bets can only be placed on the full
race card from the Contest Racetrack during that respective Contest Period. In the
event that a Contest Racetrack is cancelled, a different racetrack will be selected as a
substitute for the Contest Racetrack of that particular Contest. No refunds will be
issued. Final results from each Contest will be accumulated to determine the results of
the Tournament. See Section 6: Scoring for details on Contest and Tournament
scoring.

All Contestants must be present at a Tournament Venue to participate in the Contest. It
is strongly recommended that Contestants remain on-site for the duration of the Contest
to be aware of all Contest updates and any changes that may occur. Contest bets must
be placed during the specified period of the Contest. No bets can be placed at any other
time. The Contest is bet live through the tote-system and all bets are subject to the pari-
mutuel rules, as outlined by the Canadian Pari-Mutuel Agency (the “CPMA”).

5. HOW TO PLAY CONTEST

Contestants use their Card to place Contest bets using their Balance on the card.
Contestants’ Balance will be posted throughout the Contest on the Leaderboard. All
betting will occur through Self-Serve Terminals at Tournament Venues (“Terminals”)
during each respective Contest Period. Only bets placed through the Self-Serve
Terminals using the Card will be eligible for the Contest. All bet types and any bet
amount are permitted, as long as the wager type is available to bet through the tote
system and the Contestant has enough funds on their Card to pay for the bet. All bets
are real and placed into the live pari-mutuel wagering pools. All payouts are real and the
Balance on the Card will be adjusted accordingly. No deposits are permitted on the
Card after the initial $50 bankroll has been deposited by Contest Sponsor on behalf of
the Contestant. Failure to comply with this requirement will result in immediate
disqualification of the Contestant from the Contest and no refund of the entry fee will be
provided. No HPI Rewards Points or Take-Out Adjustments (TOAs) will be earned on
Contest bets. The Contestant can continue to place as many bets as he/she wants
during the Contest Period as long as there is a positive Balance on the card equal to or
greater than the cost of the minimum bet.

Once a Card’s Balance falls below the minimum bet amount, no more bets can be
placed with that Card. Contestant may buy a second entry, if they have not already
done so, at the Contest Centre on day of Contest up until post time of the fifth (5th) race
at the Contest Racetrack. Maximum of two (2) entries permitted per person.

Any Contestant withdrawing money from their Card during the Contest will NOT be
permitted to redeposit any money later onto their Card. However, for purposes of the
Contest and leaderboard, the Contestant’s Balance will remain unchanged and
standings will not be affected by the withdrawal.

A Card is required for placing Contest bets and loss of the Card may result in
disqualification. At the conclusion of the Contest, Contestants will be notified of their
final Balance through the Leaderboard. The tote system will track each Contestant's
Balance. When a wager is made, the amount is deducted from the Contestant's
Balance. When a bet wins, the payout amount as per the tote system, is added to the
Balance when the race results have been declared official. Leaderboard will display only
resulting Balance following each race. Contestants are urged to check their Balances
and bets for accuracy before leaving the Terminal. As the Contest will be run through
the account wagering system, no tickets will be printed for your live Contest wagers. A
paper receipt of the wager can be printed by pressing “Finish with Receipt” on the
Terminal. A bet can be cancelled and/or changed up until post time of the race by
logging into the account on a Self-Serve Terminal and cancelling the bet.

Contestants must place all bets personally. No person can directly or indirectly act as an
intermediary, transmitter or agent in placing wagers for the Contestant.

Contest bets can be placed up until the post time of the race as per host track rules for
the Contest Racetrack. It is the responsibility of the Contestant to place their Contest
bets early in any race to avoid being shut out due to line-ups at the Terminals.

As all Contest bets are placed into the live wagering pools, racing and pari-mutuel rules
of the Contest Racetrack will apply. Links to the host Racetrack’s regulators can be
found at
http://www.woodbineentertainment.com/Woodbine/Betting/USCommonPoolWagering/P
ages/RulesRegulations.aspx. For example, in the event of a late scratch, bets made on
that horse will automatically be assigned to the win pool favorite in that race. However, if
a scratch occurs before the pool is closed, that bet may be cancelled.


6. SCORING

Contest Scoring

Contestants retain the Balance of their live bankroll, excluding withdrawals, made during
the Contest.

Contest Scores (the “Balance”) reflect the Contestant’s account balance which is based
on the on-track pari-mutuel payouts as per the tote system at the Tournament Venues
(no conversion will be applied). There are no restrictions or caps on payouts. Entries
and fields are considered a single wagering interest, as defined under the regulations of
the CPMA.

Tournament Scoring

The Standings and Balances of all Tournament Contestants following each individual
Contest, once deemed official, will be accumulated, by Contestant ID, to an overall
Leaderboard (the “Tournament Leaderboard”). This cumulative Tournament
Leaderboard will be updated following each Contest and will be posted as the
Tournament Leaderboard on the Extreme Betting Contest Series page on the
http://www.WoodbineRacetrack.com website.

Once all six (6) Contests have been completed and deemed Official, the Tournament
Leaderboard will be updated with the new cumulative totals, and a final Tournament
Leaderboard (the “Final Tournament Leaderboard”) will be posted on the Extreme
Betting Contest Series page on the http://www.WoodbineRacetrack.com website. The
top Tournament Contestant who has accumulated the largest Tournament balance,
based on their accumulated balance total (the “Final Tournament Balance”), AND who
has provided their NHC Tour PIN upon registration (mandatory to be eligible for the
NHC Tournament berth), will then be awarded a berth into the 2012 NTRA/DRF
National Handicapping Championship in Las Vegas, subject to NHC eligibility
requirements (See Section 2: Eligibility for NHC eligibility details).

NHC Tour Points will also be awarded to NHC Tour Members within the top ten percent
(10%) of registered Contestants, to a maximum of 30 Contestants, on the Tournament
Leaderboard once the Tournament is closed and official results are presented.
Individuals with more than one entry qualified for points in a qualifying tournament will
earn points ONLY for their highest finish. For all details on how NHC Tour Points are
calculated and how they can earn a berth into the NHC, please visit
http://www.ntra.com/content/nhctour/view/NA==.

7. STANDINGS AND UPDATES

Provisional Contest standings will be updated in near-real time on that Contest’s
Leaderboard (the “Contest Leaderboard”) after each race using the Balance on
Contestants’ Cards. A Leaderboard displaying the Contestants’ Full Name (or Contest
ID if provided), Contest Balance, and Tournament Venue of play will be posted and
updated after the results from each Contest Race have been processed throughout the
Contest to broadcast standings. Leaderboard will only display the win or loss of a wager
after a race. Until race results are official, the bet is counted towards the Balance as an
asset: i.e. a bet will not be deducted until the result of the wager is determined. The
Leaderboard remains unofficial until the final results have been audited and are posted
to the Woodbine Racetrack website (http://www.WoodbineRacetrack.com) 72-hours
following the completion of the Contest.

Only when the Leaderboard standings have been audited and deemed final after the
72-hour audit period, will any Contest prizing be awarded.

The Standings following each individual Contest, once deemed official, will be
accumulated, by Contestant ID, to the Tournament Leaderboard. This cumulative
Tournament Leaderboard will be updated following each Contest and will be posted as
the Tournament Leaderboard on the Extreme Betting Contest Series page on the
http://www.WoodbineRacetrack.com website. Following the completion of all six (6)
Contests, the Tournament Leaderboard will be used to determine the winner of the
berth into the NHC, as well as the distribution of all NHC Tour Points to NHC members
in the top ten percent (10%) of Tournament Contestants, to a maximum of thirty (30)
Contestants.

8. WINNERS & PRIZES

Each Contest’s Prize Pool is based on [the number of Contestants entered in that
Contest] x [Entry Fee ($25)]. The Contest Sponsor will match the total amount of all
Entry Fees and add it to the prize pool up to $2,500. If the Prize Pool becomes larger
than $2500 through Entry Fees ONLY, Contest Sponsor will contribute $2,500.

Example 1:

If the Contest has 45 Contestants, the Prize Pool will be $2,250

(45 x $25 = $1,125 + $1,125 Contest Sponsor contribution)
Example 2:

If the Contest has120 registered Contestants, the Prize Pool will be $5,500

(120 x $25 = $3,000 + $2,500 max Contest Sponsor contribution)

The Contest Prize Pool will be divided in order of finish based on the highest final
Contest Balances. Using an example of 100 paying entrants in the Contest (i.e. Prize
Pool = $5,000) payouts would be as follows:



1st       $2,500         50%

2nd       $1,250         25%

3rd       $600           12%

4th       $400            8%

5th       $250            5%



One hundred percent (100%) of the Prize Pool will be paid out to Contestants as
prizing.

In the event of a tie, the prize money for both [or all] tied positions will be combined and
divided equally amongst the tied Contestants.

All winners will be unofficial pending the verification that all wagers were made in
accordance with the rules. The Prize Pool will be distributed to the top 5 finishers once
the final results become official following a 72-hour audit period. Official standings will
be posted on-line 72-hours following the Contest date. Winners will be notified following
the audit. The decision of the Contest Sponsor in all matters related to the Contest
and/or Tournament is final.

A seat in the 2012 DRF/NTRA National Handicapping Championship in Las Vegas (the
“Seat”) will be awarded to the eligible Contestant with the highest Tournament Balance
over the six (6) Contests. To be eligible, Contestant must be an active NHC Tour
member.

Release

Contest Winners will be contacted by telephone or email, notwithstanding anything in
these Official Rules, after being declared an official winner, and will be required to sign
and return within forty-eight (48) hours a standard declaration and release form stating
that he/she has read, understood and complied with these Official Rules, grants all
consents required as contemplated in these Official Rules, is eligible for and accepts the
prize as offered, and releases the Contest Sponsor and its respective affiliates and each
of the directors, officers and employees thereof from any and all liability of any kind
arising out of the entrant's participation in this Contest and receipt and use of the prize.
In the event that a Contestant fails to meet any of the eligibility requirements to be
declared an official winner, the list of top finishers will be adjusted to exclude the
ineligible Contestant, and the Contestants finishing below the ineligible Contestant will
be accordingly moved up one position.

9. GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

(leaderboards, posters, newsletters, programs, etc) and to be printed in any publication.

the Contest Sponsor, relating to the winner’s participation in the Contest, acceptance or
use of the prize, including if the prize (or a component thereof) does not prove

The Contest Sponsor reserves the right to terminate, withdraw or modify this Contest at
any time without prior notice. In this event, all entry fees will be refunded in full and
