Hey guys, not sure if any of you have dabbled in the DRF Tournaments or followed along with the handicapping championships in Vegas but I thought it might be interesting to play the Breeders Cup as if it were a handicapping tournament and see how we stack up against the heavy hitters who been on the Handicapping Tour qualifying for this event all year.

The rules are simple. Give one horse in each race and an alternate.

You will accumulate the Win and Place payouts for all your primary picks. Payouts are capped at 20-1 for a win ($42) and 10-1 for a place ($22). So if you horse was 60/1 you'd still only get $42 + $22 max.

The alternates will only be used if there is a scratch.

You need to have all your picks posted by first post each day. Meaning you can do Friday and Saturday separately.

Good luck!
