CONTEST RULES:

The contest will operate on under the framework of the Charitable Wager Rules as a $2 Win-Place-Show ‘lockdown’ formatted mythical bankroll handicapping contest with the following amended rules:

  1. Submission deadline for this contest is the “off time” (as reported by Equibase) for first race.
  2. ‘Fashionably Late’ entries will be accepted in this contest.

In 2015 on a whim, ChartiableWager’s host, Stuart Slagle, created a handicapping contest including several thoroughbred stakes races across the country. Slagle enlisted the help of Horse Racing Radio Network‘s Jude Feld. In the spirit of the horse racing twitter world uniting for good, all participants voluntarily put up a minimum of $25 (USD) to compete in a mythical bankroll handicapping contest where the winner decides what charity receives all of the donation pool.

Based upon the initial success, HRRN sponsored a similar contest on the US Memorial Day Holiday. The contest ran under the mantle of linemakers.net which has since been re-branded as charitablewager.com. Subsequently, Danonymous Racing sponsored another “Winner Gives All” contest on the thirteen Breeders’ Cup stakes events held at Santa Anita and on the Pegasus World Cup stakes events held at Gulfstream Park. HRRN reprised their role as contest sponsor with the nine stakes of 2016 Claiming Crown held at Gulfstream Park. Paulick Report sponsored second edition of the Boxing Day Betting Challenge. Subsequent contests have been held on big event days such as the Florida Derby, Louisiana Derby, and Woodbine Mile.

In Chartiable Wager’s ‘Winner Gives All’ contests, no monies trade hands between the contest organizers or any contestants. Donations are made on the honor system. 100% of donation pool goes to the winners’ charities. Each contest winner chooses from a list of contest designated charities. The Winner Gives All.
