Introducing Free Friday Fun(d)raiser Series

On Friday, December 30, 2016, Charitable Wager announced the creation of a new charity tournament series: Free Friday Fun(d)raiser to take place every Friday in 2017. The contest series is designed for novices and experts alike who would like to help raise awareness and funds for various horse racing charities. The contest will also appeal to those with limited resources whether time, money, or both. The first contest of the series will be offered on Friday, January 6, 2017.

In CharitableWager.com’s Free Friday Fun(d)raiser series, all participants will select horses in 5 mandatory races in a mythical bankroll handicapping contest where the winner gets to decide what charity receives all of the ‘weekly donation pool.’ The Free Friday Fun(d)raiser series (FFF) has no entry fee. The winner will select from over a dozen horse racing themed charities. The FFF ‘weekly donation pool’ is currently US$5 (contributed by the Charitable Wager Host) plus all of ‘weekly’ donation fees of the sponsoring advertisers. 100% of FFF ‘weekly donation pool’ will go to the designated charity.

Additionally, in the 2017 Free Friday Fun(d)raiser series, contestants will earn contest points for the charities for which they were playing. Weekly winners will earn 60 points, weekly second place finishers will earn 20 points, third place finishers will earn 10 points. All other weekly participants will earn 1 point for their respective charities. The FFF ‘annual donation pool’ is currently US$100 (contributed by the Charitable Wager Host) plus all of ‘annual’ donation fees of the sponsoring advertisers. At the end of the FFF 2017 contest year (December 29th), the five charities with the most amassed points will receive 60%, 20%, 10%, 5% and 5% of the FFF ‘annual’ donation pool for first, second, third, fourth, and fifth place respectively.

While no donation is required to play in the Free Friday Fun(d)raiser series, contestants will be encouraged to donate $5, or however much they feel comfortable contributing, to the charity selected by winner of each weekly contest.

The Current FFF ‘Annual Donation Pool’ For 2017 Is $100 And Growing.

Official Results of 2016 Charitable Wager Boxing Day Betting Challenge Sponsored By The Paulick Report

Nicolle Neulist, aka rogueclown, won the 2016 Charitable Wager Boxing Day Betting Challenge sponsored by The Paulick Report. Nicolle had an unbelievable contest performance of winning six out of twelve contest races. Nicolle’s consistency included picking the following winners: IDA’S WARRIOR (Fair Grounds Race 4), BALLAGH ROCKS (Gulfstream Park Race 9), DANZATRICE in the Tiffany Lass Stakes (Fair Grounds Race 5), BETTYS BAMBINO in the San Simeon Handicap (grade III) (Santa Anita Race 6), MIND YOUR BISCUITS in the Malibu Stakes (Grade I) (Santa Anita Race 8), and CONQUEST ENFORCER in the Mathis Brothers Mile (Grade II) (Santa Anita Race 9).

Neulist, a Chicago-based horse racing blogger, explained ten days ago the reasons why she plays for The Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation in Charitable Wager contests including inspiring “stories like LADY ELI coming back from laminitis to win a Grade I” stakes race. On a twist of fate, Nicolle saw CONQUEST ENFORCER race in person in the Nearctic Stakes at Woodbine Racecourse earlier this year.

Nicolle has played for the Grayson Jockey Club in all of her previous Charitable Wager contests (2016 Memorial Day Betting Challenge sponsored by the Horse Racing Radio Network, 2016 Charitable Wager Breeders’ Cup Contest sponsored by Danonymous Racing, and the 2016 Charitable Wager Claiming Crown Contest sponsored by the Horse Racing Radio Network). As the winner of the Boxing Day Betting Challenge, Nicolle Neulist has chosen Grayson-Jockey Club as the winner of the Donation Pool constituted by the pledged donations of all of today’s contest entrants (minimum of $20 US).
