*WinStar Farm’s Fantasy Derby Back by Popular Demand*
 
It’s time to play Fantasy Derby again! Get your Fantasy Thoroughbred Stable up and running again now – Fantasy Derby 2011 starts now!
 
WinStar Farm's much anticipated and highly popular Fantasy Derby contest is back! Fantasy Derby 2011 is free for racing fans, easy to play, and offers the very best in possible prizes! Enter today right here: http://Fans.WinStarFarm.com
 
Fantasy Derby 2011 allows each fan to name his or her own Fantasy Stable, and then select horses in four separate categories. The first category is WinStar's own Derby hopefuls. The second category is progeny from WinStar's Stallions. The third and fourth categories let fans select from a broad menu of Derby nominees. Fans also get an "add-on" period in mid March where they can add three additional horses, such as late bloomers that they may have overlooked.
 
Can you be the winning stable this year? We show you which horses have the best chance at making the Derby 2011 field, and all you have to do is pick the ones you like the best!
 
Please note that you *must pick your Fantasy Stable by THIS Saturday the 12th at noon*.
 
Elliott Walden, CEO of WinStar Farm, sees Fantasy Derby 2011 as another step in WinStar Farm's broad desire to engage with more and more racing fans and thoroughbred enthusiasts: "This contest makes it really easy for fans to get interested in the Derby Prep races, and the horses who are certainly on the Derby watch lists."
 
Winners will be determined by who has the most Fantasy Stable earnings through April 16, 2011. Fantastic prizes will be awarded to the Top 10 finishers. First Prize is round-trip coach airfare for two (2) from any major airport in the continental U.S.A. to Louisville, KY, plus lodging for three (3) nights (May 5-7, 2011), two (2) box seat tickets to the 2011 Kentucky Oaks on May 6, 2011, and two (2) box seat tickets to Kentucky Derby (May 7, 2011). The winner also will receive a VIP tour of WinStar Farm on May 5, 2011. (Note: meals and ground transportation are not included.) The other nine (9) prizes, while obviously not as good as this First Prize, really give fans an incentive to play.
 
Commenting on the great prizes, Walden, added: "WinStar is committed to being a leader not only on the track, but in all efforts in lifting the profile of thoroughbred racing, especially connecting with fans meaningfully via the Internet. The prizes we are offering should appeal to even the most casual racing fan."
 
Entry is quick and easy, and Fantasy Derby 2011 is free to play. Fans can register to play at http://Fans.WinStarFarm.com
 
Last year, thousands of fans played in the inaugural WinStar Farm Fantasy Derby. It was an overwhelming success with racing fans, and popular clamor for its return started up recently on WinStar Farm’s facebook page, which is the fastest growing facebook page among thoroughbred farms. Recently, WinStar completed an 8-week, facebook-only contest where fans submitted names for six of WinStar’s top two-year old colts. WinStar's robust facebook presence coupled with its full menu of fan-oriented games and contests make WinStar one of the industry's leaders in online fan interaction as well as social media.
 
Don’t delay – get your stable up and running and join WinStar Farm in the Run for the Roses!
