INGLEWOOD, Calif. (December 8, 2012)—Six players remain active in the $2,500 winner-take-all Show Me The Money contest at Betfair Hollywood Park.
The free challenge, which began November 8 with 2,409 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 December 16 – closing day of the Autumn meet – the winner will be decided by a tiebreaker. The first tiebreaker is number of wins.
Two Californians – Craig Mahl of Anaheim and Robert Patsky of Cherry Valley – are among the survivors through 19 days.
The others still playing are Wayne Benafield (Henderson, Nevada), Edward Kramer (West Palm Beach, Florida), Anthony Lee (Edmonton, Alberta, Canada) and Dan Stepien (Ballston Spa, New York).
Kramer chose first race winner Vaundell Saturday while Patsky’s selection was Flashback, a first time starter who won the seventh. The selection for Mahl and Benafield was Master Chef, who finished second in the fifth race. Fire in the Wind, the runner-up in the first, was Stepien’s choice. Lee selected Baby Blake, who finished second in the eighth.
Four contestants were eliminated Saturday when Rock Off finished ninth in the eighth.
