INGLEWOOD, Calif. (May 27, 2013)—A pair of Californians are the only two players alive in the $2,500 winner-take-all Show Me The Money contest at Betfair Hollywood Park.
The free challenge, which began May 5 with 1,744 players, requires a participant to choose one horse each racing day – in six designated races – at least 10 minutes prior to the first race. The selected horse must finish first, second or third for a player to continue.
The last player standing receives the cash prize. Should more than one contestant still be alive at the conclusion of racing July 14 – closing day of the Spring/Summer meet – the winner will be decided by a tiebreaker. The first tiebreaker is number of wins.
The Monday selection for both Pamela Erickson of Oakland and Larry Mineau of Whittier was Super Ability, who finished second as the favorite in the eighth race.
Jim O’Toole of Park Ridge, Illinois was eliminated Monday when Tamarack Smarty, the 5-2 favorite in the seventh race, finished fifth.
