Sportsmanís Park will bring the fun of an interactive online handicapping contest to horse racing fans nationwide during its live Thoroughbred racing season with the free $5,000 Chi Town Challenge.

The goal of the Chi Town Challenge is to select just one horse in any race on each day of live racing at Sportsmanís Park that you think will finish in the money (1st, 2nd, or 3rd). Select correctly on Day No. 1 and youíll move on to Day No. 2 of the contest and so on. Entrants who fail to correctly select a horse to finish in the money or who fail to make a selection before the deadline of any race day are eliminated from the contest.

The "sudden death" competition will continue every racing day until thereís one person left standing. The handicapper who lasts the longest will receive the only prize: $5,000. The prize money will be divided equally if there is more than one winner. The deadline for making daily selections will be 12:30 p.m. CST every race day. Scratches and changes will be made available at 11:45 a.m. CST every race day. Selections are final. Once you submit your selection you cannot make a change.
