ShowVivor start delayed until Sunday

Because of technical difficulties that caused limited access to entries for ShowVivor, the beginning of contest was moved from Saturday to Sunday.

Everyone who entered, whether they selected losing picks or not on Saturday, is still alive.

And registration remains open until 12:15 p.m. Pacific Time on Sunday.

ShowVivor 2009 begins today at Santa Anita

showvivor4A free $5,000 on line handicapping contest starts today on the Santa Anita website. 

ShowVivor contestants select one runner a day to hit the board and if successful they survive until the next day. But if their pick doesn’t finish first, second or third, then the contest is over for them.

The contest ends when only one player is left, or on April 19, which is the last day of the Santa Anita meet. First place is $3,000 plus airfare to Las Vegas with two nights at the Las Vegas Hilton, second place is $1,500 and third prize is $500.

Players must be registered before 12:15 p.m. PST. Go to for all of the details.

No main track maiden sprints Saturday at Santa Anita

finish-line-at-santa-anita-park-by-rhetoricruSanta Anita carded no maiden sprints on the main track today, so I have nothing to shoot at.

The only race less than one mile for non winners is scheduled for 6-1/2 furlongs on the downhill turf course.

But I see that on Sunday the fourth race is a maiden slated for 6 furlongs on the main track, and on Monday I’m looking forward to tackling two 7 furlongs races for maiden claimers.
