Fun in the Sun: Saratoga/Del Mar Contest Starts Saturday

Xpressbet’s popular and profitable Fun in the Sun tournament returns Saturday for another exciting season and it’s your opportunity to maket his summer memorable. In a good way, that is. Last summer’s empty Saratoga and Del Mar grandstands won’t soon be forgotten, but this year we’re back on track, baby -- and it’s time to create a winning experience you’ll proudly recall againand again.


Fun in the Sun is a weekly online handicapping competition open to Xpressbet account holders that begins Saturday, July 17, and is offered each Saturday through August 28. A $25 weekly registration fee is required to play and all fees are returned to players in the form of prizes. That’s right, no takeout! Zero. Zilch. Zip. In fact, the Xpressbet suits are even going to add a whopping $10,000 to the Saturday, September 4 Final Table kitty!


How can you reach the Final Table? Simple. Well, the process is simple, but a challenge to accomplish. And you wouldn’t want it any other way. Finish in the top-five ranked players weekly, based on total earnings from live $10 Win wagers on one horse in each of 10 competition races, and you’ll earn a seat at the Final Table. That’s where qualified players will match handicapping wits Saturday, Sept. 4 for shares of a $10k-added prize pool.


Besides Final Table seats to the top five finishers, weekly prizes include 70% of the gross weekly registration fees (30% goes toward the Final Table pot). The top earner each week will collect 60% of the kitty, with25% to second and 15% to third (plus seats at the Final Table). Fourth and fifth-best weekly finishers will earn Final Table seats. Weekly competition races are the last 5 races from Saratoga and the first 5 races from Del Mar.


Plus, with Fun in the Sun, even if you don’t earn a weekly prize, you still can come out ahead by cashing one or two of those $10 contest Win wagers. Since those bets are ‘live,’ you keep what you win. A nice-priced winner or two will put you ahead for the week.
