DAK RACING FREE BREEDERS' CUP CONTEST
Feasting on Breeders' Cup Stakes!
Sponsored by Hawthorne Race Course and Daily Racing Form.
Breeders' Cup - Saturday, October 30 at Lone Star Park
The contest is simple - select two horses in each of the eight Breeders' Cup races. The first horse is your selection in the race. If this horse competes, he/she will be used as your contest play. The second horse is an alternate - in case your top pick scratches. This way you aren't stuck with the post time favorite! If both horses scratch, you will receive the chalk (sorry).
Points are accumulated by adding the "across the board" payouts on each of your individual race selections.
For example, if Horse A wins and pays $13.00 to win, $7.00 to place and $3.40 to show, the return would be $23.40. If Horse B finishing second at 5.00 to place and $2.80 to show, the return would be $7.80. If horse C finishes third and pays $3.20 to show, the return would be $3.20.
At the completion of all of the designated races, the prices will be added up, and the player with the highest score wins! In case of ties, drawings will be held to determine placements.
E-mail us your selections at email@example.com BEFORE NOON (CST) on Saturday, October 30, 2004 (Breeders' Cup Day). Entries received after that time will not be considered.
Subject Line: Breeders' Cup Contest Please include your name and contact phone number.

Help End Horse Slaughter!
By Mandi Kristufek
We are once again asking for your help to eliminate horse slaughtering in the U.S. Too many horses have already been slaughtered in Texas and at the recent opening at Cavel International in Illinois!
In May (HB 649 - Amendment 4) to ban the slaughter of horses in Illinois, passed the State Senate by a vote of 38-15, unfortunately it failed to pass the State House.
In a strong show of support and solidarity for the American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act (AHSPA), Lone Star Park, Breeders Cup Limited, Churchill Downs, Hawthorne Race Course and other industry organizations have welcomed the opportunity to provide the National Horse Protection Coalition with a table, "trackside" during Breeders Cup week!
The NHPC will be at Lone Star manning the tables on Thursday and Friday prior to the Breeders Cup races and then on Saturday October 30th, Breeders Cup day, the table will be staffed by representatives of the anti- horse slaughter movement including:
Fund for Horses
There will also be representatives at Hawthorne on BC Day available to help educate people on these atrocities and will feature information on the cruelty of the horse slaughter trade, the AHSPA, Thoroughbred retirement, equine adoption and rescue, and most importantly, what people can do to help the horses!
