BCBC Betting Challenge 2017

BCBC Betting Challenge 2017

Breeders' Cup Betting Challenge Format

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.

Estimated prizes

  • 1st Place - $300,000
  • 2nd Place - $200,000
  • 3rd Place - $110,000
  • 4th Place - $75,000
  • 5th Place - $60,000
  • 6th Place - $50,000
  • 7th Place - $40,000
  • 8th Place - $35,000
  • 9th Place - $30,000
  • 10th Place - $25,000

  • 11th Place - $20,000
  • 12th Place - $17,500
  • 13th Place - $15,000
  • 14th Place - $12,500
  • 15th Place - $10,000

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.
