HOW TO PLAY
Every Santa Anita Pick ‘Em contest day the entrant can make one selection for each prop on the Santa Anita Card through the contest webpage https://pickem.santaanita.com.
Each Santa Anita Card has a series of props and horse races the player can select from. Each prop or race that is selected correctly will receive one (1) point. If the prop resulted in an incorrect selection or in a “push” or tie will receive zero (0) points.
For each available Santa Anita Card, the player with the most points for that contest day will win the prize. If there is a tie of two or more players, the tie breaker will be in effect. If the tie breaker still results in a tie the remaining players will split the prize money.
For each season long contests, the player that has the most points by the end of the season will win the prize. If the season long contest results in a tie, those players will split the prize money. The current season long competition is between Saturday, September 30, 2023 through Sunday, November 5, 2023.
Players can earn a “Bonus Santa Anita Card”. The “Bonus Santa Anita Card” is a second set of selections the player can make. The player can only use one (1) “Bonus Santa Anita Card” per contest day (a total of two (2) Santa Anita Cards per contest day). The player will only get credit for the “Santa Anita Card” in which the most points were collected. For example, if the player’s first Santa Anita Card earned ten (10) points and on second Santa Anita Card earned eight (8) points, the player would only get credit for ten (10) points for that contest day.
