Harness: Free racing game offers $10,000 prize


Hoping to attract millennials to the horse racing industry, a prominent horse owner is putting up $10,000 to the first person in his online game who can correctly pick 10 horse races in-a-row.  The game launching today called www.10wins10.com lets people play for free.

“10wins10 doesn’t even ask for credit card information.  We are a non-gambling site and everyone around the world is invited to play,” stated Benson, of J L Benson’s Stable.

The online game picks start today with Wednesday’s race five at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach, Fl.  Races from other leading horse tracks, including Belmont Park, Santa Anita, Yonkers Raceway, Meadowlands, Woodbine and others will follow. If players lose a race, their streak goes to zero, but they can start again the next day.

To add interest and racing education, the game includes programs, tutorial instructions, professional handicapper tips, and links to view live racing, results and video replays.

“We need to reach the millennial and make them aware of the new entertainment, social excitement, and fun there is at the tracks,” stated Benson.  “We know they’re online and we know they’re looking for fun and excitement, so we’re putting up the prize money and offering this free game”.

Registration is ongoing at  www.10wins10.com.   The contest runs through Tuesday, March 15, 2016 and also offers a consolation prize should contestants fail to pick 10 winners. Players have until midnight prior to each race day to make their selections.

“The game is easy to understand and play,” Benson said. “Who wouldn’t take a few minutes to pick the winner of a horse race with the hopes of winning $10,000? No gimmicks, no credit cards. I guess you can say I’m putting my money where my mouth is!”
