Triple Play offers three birds for one stone


Want to put up $110 with a chance to win $10,500? That’s what’s being offered on DRF Tournaments on Saturday in the Triple Play round-one qualifier. The top 10 percent of finishers will advance to round two on Sunday, April 16, when they will have their chance to win entries to the three biggest live-bankroll contests of the spring: Keeneland’s Grade One Gamble, Santa Anita’s Preakness Challenge, and the Monmouth Pick Your Prize contest.

For folks who want to get started at an even lower price point, that’s an option as well. Play in a Triple Play feeder for $25, finish in the top 25 percent, and you can advance to round one without having to buy in directly.

Also on Saturday, there is one of the final chances to win in to the Keeneland Grade One Gamble. Buy-in is $162 and one in 25 entries will win $3,000 Keeneland seats and $500 in travel.

Sunday’s featured events on DRFT are aimed at live-bankroll players in Southern California and beyond. The first is a one-day qualifier for the Del Mar Handicapping Challenge in July. Contestants must put up $400 and one in 22 will win a grand prize package worth $7,500 – a $7,000 Del Mar seat plus $500 in travel.

Also on Sunday, there’s a $225 buy-in Santa Anita Preakness qualifier. The prize package is worth $5,000 between the seat and travel money. Please note that this contest will need 23 entries to go. If there are not 23 entries, players will receive refunds and an email will be sent at the post time of the first scheduled contest race.
