Friday is always a fun, early start to the weekend at HorseTourneys with our $5,000 Guaranteed Pick & Pray ($2,500 to the winner). Of course, we have that game on tap for the usual $185. Contest races are set as Aqueduct’s 6th through 9th; Churchill’s 8th through 10th; and Del Mar’s 4th through 6th (10 races in all).
This Friday, though, using the same 10 races, we also have a special free VIP Exacta Box tourney (live format) for those who have played at least $7,500 lifetime on our site. You pick three horses per races (plus alternates, if you wish) and are scored based on the $1.00 exacta payoff. These games are a lot of fun and, in this case, you have nothing to lose by trying. Sign up now.
We typically offer a $12,500 Guaranteed tourney on Saturdays, but this Saturday, we have raised the stakes a bit.
This weekend’s featured cash game will offer a guaranteed pot of $15,000, with an entry fee of $195. We will pay full prizes (down to 7th place) no matter what, so keep your eye out for a possible overlay here. The winner will receive $7,000.
There is also a “Last Chance” qualifier on the Saturday schedule. It’s for the Nov. 26 Twin Spires Online Championships, set for Saturday, November 26. One of every 15 entries in this weekend’s qualifying event will receive a $500 entry fee plus $250 in cash. So even if you lose next week, you win! It’s only $58 per entry for this one.
And we’ll be hosting another Horse Player World Series Full-Package qualifier Saturday. Winners (one package awarded per each 25 entries) receive not just the $1,500 entry fee, but four nights’ hotel at The Orleans plus $500 travel.
Our three featured events listed above will all operate with a live format. Contest races still TBA.
On to Sunday…
Again, November is the final month that you can qualify for the NHC at HorseTourneys and on Sunday we’ll host our penultimate 2-seat-Guaranteed NHC qualifier of 2016 for $160. Winners of this live-format tourney receive the NHC berth, $1,000 travel and their hotel stay at Treasure Island. If participation goes beyond 210, we will award a third or even a fourth package. But we will award at least two no matter how many take part. Sunday contest races are also still TBD.
Also on the docket for Sunday is an entry-only qualifier to the Horse Player World Series. We’ll continue to offer these each Sunday (with the full-package HPWS qualifiers running on Saturdays). Entry is $87 with one winner per 20.
And Sunday has a “Last Chance” qualifier of its own this weekend. It’s for the Hawthorne Fall NHC Super Qualifier to be held Nov. 25-26. Winners (one per 15 entries) get their $700 entry covering both days, plus $500 for travel. this qualifier costs just $93.
For dyed-in-the-wool cash game players, there’s our usual $7,500 Guaranteed game on Sunday with $3,750 to the winner and prizes down to 5th. $190 gets you an entry into that one. And our $1,500 Guaranteed exacta box game ($600 to the winner) will round out our Sunday featured schedule, along with a couple of other guaranteed-payout cash events.
As most of you know, you can play your way into most of the above games via low-cost feeders between now and the actual event. And there are plenty more games (including single-track tourneys) that you can choose from as well. Plus a free Saturday tourney for those whose HorseTourneys accounts are less than 30 days old.
There’s a lot to pick from as always. Check our full schedule (right on our home page) for what looks good to you. And whichever games you play, good luck!
