$10,000 ‘SHOWVIVOR’ RETURNS DEC. 26; POPULAR FREE ONLINE CONTEST FEATURES $5,000 TOP PRIZE & REQUIRES PLAYERS TO TAB ONE IN-THE-MONEY RUNNER PER DAY

 

                ARCADIA, Calif. (Dec. 19, 2014)–Santa Anita’s popular free online “Showvivor” will mark its return on the track’s opening day, Friday Dec. 26 and will again offer fans $10,000 in prize money, highlighted by a $5,000 top prize–to be awarded to the longest “show streak” over the course of Santa Anita’s Winter and Spring Meetings which will conclude on June 28.

“Showvivor participants are required to select one horse from one race per racing day, and that horse must run no worse than third in order for the player to “Showvive.” If the player’s horse of choice fails to finish 1-2-3, that individual is not totally eliminated, as he or she may start up a new streak the next racing day. The player with the longest “show streak” on Sunday, June 28, will be declared the winner of $5,000.

The longest “show streak” is one of five separate ways to win beginning Dec. 26:

 

–SHOW STREAK The player that has the longest “show” or no-worse than third-place finish streak at the end of the Spring Meet will win the Grand Prize of $5,000. Players are advised to note that if they fail to make an online selection on a given day, their streak is still alive but they will not receive credit for days missed.

–WIN STREAK This carries a $2,000 prize and is intended to reward players who have selected the most consecutive first-place finishers. If a player fails to make a selection on a given day, his or her streak may continue, but the player will not receive credit for any days missed.

                –TOTAL WINS At the end of a meet, the top player with the most total wins will win a $1,000 prize.

–TOTAL PLACES This too, carries a prize of $1,000 and rewards the player that selects the most total places or second-place finishes.

WIN PAYOUT At the end of the meet, the player who has tabbed the highest single day win payout will be awarded a $1,000 prize.

Players are encouraged to sign up as early as possible at santaanita.com/showvivor, although registration will be available after Dec. 26. Daily online selections must be made no later than 10 minutes until first post time. Please note, special early first post time on opening day, Dec. 26, is at 12 noon.
