The next Grade 1 qualifier, which costs $960 and will send one in 15 entries to the Pegasus Challenge, which normally cost $12,000. The Pegasus Challenge is a fabulous opportunity for horseplayers, with no entry fee and a house&#45;funded prize pool. There&rsquo;s also an opportunity for players to get sizable rebates on out&#45;of&#45;contest wagers over the course of Pegasus weekend. The contest itself takes place Jan. 26&#45;27.Here&rsquo;s how the qualifiers work. On the next two Sundays, DRFT will be running Round 1 events for the Grade 1&rsquo;s. Players put up $220 and one in five will win their $960 Grade 1 entry fees. This player&#45;friendly 20 percent ratio of prizes to entries is fabulous news for two reasons. For one thing, you only have to beat four other people to win. But also, the contest only needs five entries to go. This means that if interest in these Round 1&rsquo;s is high, more Round 1&rsquo;s could be added. And with player&#45;friendly terms for the most player&#45;friendly live&#45;bank contest ever held, interest is expected to be high.
