The Breeders' Cup Betting Challenge takes the form of a number of live and online qualifying tournaments. Winners of these feeder events earn a spot in the BCBC $1 million main event to be held during the Breeders' Cup World Championships on November 3rd and 4th, with the $10,000 entry fee paid, as well as consolation cash prizes. However, with only two weeks remaining to the Breeders' Cup, there are only four feeder tournaments left in which to qualify.

Handicapping Contest Rules
Of the remaining four feeder events, two are live events, and two others are what they call Pick and Pray events. Just as it sounds, live events take place as the selected races are ongoing. Just like in regular handicapping, players enter their selections just prior to each of the selected races.
In Pick and Pray events, all selections for all races must be entered prior to the first of the selected races being run. In other words, you are "locked in" to your picks for all races that are part of the event and can't change your selections after the day's event begins. In both cases, the Picks format is a very simple $2 Win/Place bet, with a payout cap of 20-1 on all Win bets, and 10-1 on all Place bets. At the end of the day's event, the player with the biggest bankroll wins.
Dates and Details
The two remaining Pick and Pray events for the BCBC are on Friday, October 27 and Sunday, October 29. Both of these events carry a $500 entry fee. The first of these is limited to 78 entries (although entry limits for all events could be expanded as per demand). There is a spot to be won for the BCBC main event for every 23 entries, with one gauranteed entry no matter how few people enter, nd three consolation prizes. In the second of these, there is also one main event prize to be won for every 23 entries, with one gauranteed spot and three consolation prizes.
The two remaining live events are both to be held on Saturday, October 28.
