Santa Anita Park is begining another ShowVivor contest Wednesday.
ShowVivor II is an online competition where horseplayers select one horse a day that absolutely, positively is a lock to hit the board. Then they sit back and hope the jockey doesn’t fall off, the horse doesn’t go wide, or their runner doesn’t fade fast in the stretch after dueling too quickly for the lead.
If the contestant’s horse avoids trouble and runs well enough to hit the board, the handicapper survives showvives until the next racing day. The race player who lasts the longest wins $3,000 in cash and a deluxe weekend for two in a premier room at the Las Vegas Hilton. Air travel is included. Second prize is $1,500 and third place pays $500.
ShowVivor lasts until the end of the meet, April 19. To sign up go to the Santa Anita Park website.
