Hi guys,

So, I haven't had time to automate this yet, but hopefully that'll happen semi-soon. But for now, here's the deal:

Anyone is welcome to do picks, though obviously you need to be in the game to receive money/prizes for picking the right horses.

FF will pay people based on their picks:

Win - if you correctly pick the winning horse, you will receive $250

Place - if you correctly pick the placing horse, you will receive $100

Show - if you correctly pick the showing horse, you will receive $50

Quinella - if you correctly pick the 1-2 horses in the correct order, you will receive $500

Trifecta - if you correctly pick the 1-2-3 horses in the correct order, you will receive $1,000

Note: Quinella & Trifecta bets are "stand-alone", as in -- if you succeed at the Quinella, you only get the money for the Quinella, not the Win/Place bets as well.

So if you pick the right horse to win, but miss out on 2nd/3rd, you get $250. If you pick the right horse to win and place (in the right order), but miss out on 3rd, you get $500. And so on.

Races must have at least 3 horses to place bets, and must have at least 6 to place quinella/trifecta bets.

Picks must be posted to the forum by midnight EST on racing day (so Tuesday/Friday nights).

Until I automate this, you will be responsible for keeping track of your own standings.

FF will pay on a monthly basis.

*Note: There ***may** be end-of-year prizes for people who do very well and do handicapping for a lot (i.e. 50% or more) of the racing days.

Any questions?
