INGLEWOOD, Calif. (December 9, 2012)—With four days remaining in the Autumn meet, only three players are still alive in the $2,500 winner-take-all Show Me The Money contest at Betfair Hollywood Park.
The free challenge, which began Nov. 8 with 2,409 players, requires a participant to choose one horse each racing day – in six designated races – at least 10 minutes before the first race. The selected horse must finish first, second or third for a player to continue.
The last player left receives the cash prize. Should more than one contestant still be standing at the conclusion of racing Dec. 16 – closing day of the Autumn meet – the winner will be decided by a tiebreaker. The first tiebreaker is number of wins.
The three survivors after 20 racing days are Wayne Benafield (Henderson, Nevada), Anthony Lee (Edmonton, Alberta, Canada) and Craig Mahl (Anaheim).
Benafield chose second race runner-up Kevin’s Kool Kat Sunday while Lee selected fourth race winner Distant Image. Mahl’s choice was Euroglide, who finished second in the eighth.
Two players were eliminated in Sunday’s fourth race when Miss Lady Ellen finished fourth and Miss Reditore checked in sixth. Another contestant was knocked out for failing to submit a selection prior to the deadline.
