WinStar StableMates announces fourth annual Fantasy Derby handicapping contest
Tuesday, February 9, 2016
The fourth annual Fantasy Derby Challenge, presented by WinStar StableMates, kicks off this Friday, February 12. The free handicapping contest follows prominent 3-year-old Thoroughbreds on the road to the Kentucky Derby, and culminates after nine weeks with the Arkansas Derby (G1) at Oaklawn Park on April 16, 2016.
 
“We are very excited to bring back this popular contest for the fourth year in a row”, said Elliott Walden, WinStar President & CEO. “It is never too early to be thinking about May, and it is such a great opportunity for both casual fans and diehard enthusiasts to put their handicapping skills to the test during this exciting time of the year.”
 
To enter the contest, participants have until 12 p.m. (noon) Friday, February 12 to pick a fantasy stable of 12 horses out of 47 horses offered.  Contestants will earn “purse winnings” each time one of their horses runs and earns purse money. The winner is determined by the highest earnings total after the Arkansas Derby on April 16.
 
Among the prizes offered this year feature WinStar stallion halters, WinStar stallion apparel, complimentary WinStar StableMates memberships, and table tickets on the 4th floor of Churchill Downs’ Jockey Club Suite for both Kentucky Oaks and Kentucky Derby days.
