Welcome to this edition of PICK A PONY
We will travel to race tracks around the globe and bring you live horse racing action
Your job will be to pick the winner of the selected race
PLEASE NOTE: THE INFORMATION BELOW WAS FOR THE FIRST RACE HELD BACK IN 2019. IF YOU ARE GOING TO PLAY, PLEASE CHECK OUT THE RACING INFORMATION FOR THE CURRENT DAY'S RACE AND DON'T USE THIS.
(3.5 to 1 is better than 40 to 1)
What is it?
You are predicting which horse will win this real race
How do you play?
Post either the # of the horse, the horse's name or the name of the jockey that you think will win.
So you can post #1, Shark or Captain Marooned
As long as it's clear which ONE horse you are picking, you can be creative
I hope Shark doesn't get marooned in the gate
Just make sure it's clear which SINGLE horse you are picking, but be as funny or creative as you want
Feel free to use GIF's or Images, but please limit them to a maximum of 800 pixels high and wide
Duplicate picks are allowed
Only 1 post per person for this specific contest, any more and all of your posts will be disallowed
If you edit your pick after the deadline, your pick will be disallowed
This contest will close at the start of the race
(Disclaimer: A horse can be “scratched” (removed) from a race due to injury or other factors just prior to post time. Since we post the racing form prior to the race, it is possible you will pick a horse that won’t be in the race. All we have to say about that is… BUMMER… Deal with it!)
The race starts at:
7:40 AM CHICAGO TIME (UTC -6)
1:40 PM GMT (UTC -0)
3:40 PM LOCAL TIME (UTC +2)
Or, about 4 hours from the time of this post
Any pick made after the start of the race will be ignored
10 x the ODDS
Example - if your horse goes off at 3.5 to 1 odds, you win 35 WRZ$ if your horse wins
NOTE: The minimum payout will be 30 WRZ$, and the maximum payout will be 100 WRZ$ regardless of the odds
So don't delay, PICK A PONY
