    Yes


    $250 Bank///highest end of the day wins

    or

    the way all the other horse racing contests for Triple Crown are run
    $20 each race
    $50 final race
    Only win and place bets

    sbr horserace handicapping contest idea

    could you award aprize of 1 year membership to sbr pro status,and for those that are pro status,boot up their point tally to an equal level.NO.2: contest should be win and place,capped at 42-1 for win and,20-1 for place,12-1 for show.if using show bet.NO.3: all contests picks should be made before the 1rst contest race.this gives contestants
    an option to make their picks as ealy as a day before the contest.(they may have obligations elsewhere contest day,and would miss out.
    good luck sbr and all

    i would like to participate and we should only play win-place bets with 20 points given for a win and 10 points given for a place and double points given for a best bet all bets should be in by 1st race and by this way people are not stabbing for a longshot price to take the tourney
    PICK YOUR 1ST AND 2ND PLACERS

    Pros only to get the prize points. Non pros can enter but for no prize winnings. Just like all other contests.

    It should be two contests each week. One for Saturday, one for another day or days.

    Each contest should be set and ran by a different poster each time. All rules and prizes per his choice. This will give us lots of different contest formats. This should be ran until the majority find the best contest format. This will be our Derby contest.

    Plus a Derby contest should be for only the people - pros - that play in a majority of the weekly contests.
    This will reward the regular horse players. As the derby contest is just a number picking contest full of one and done contest players.

    This is a great idea; nothing wrong with a little variety. I'm in.
