ARCADIA, Calif. (Dec. 18, 2015)–Santa Anita’s popular free online “Showvivor” will again be available to fans everywhere on the track’s opening day, Saturday, Dec. 26. Showvivor will offer participating fans $5,000 in prize money, highlighted by a $2,500 top prize–to be awarded to the longest “show streak” over the course of Santa Anita’s Winter Meet, which concludes on April 10. A new contest will begin in the spring on Thursday, May 5.
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 eliminated, as he or she may start up a new streak the next racing day. The player with the longest show streak at the conclusion of the Spring Meet will be declared the winner of $2,500.
Along with the longest “show streak” there are a total 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 $2,500. Players are advised 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 $1,000 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 conclusion of the Spring Meet, the player with the most total wins will take a $500 prize.
TOTAL PLACES This too, carries a prize of $500 and rewards the player that selects the most total places (second place finishes) through both the Winter and Spring meets.
WIN PAYOUT At the end of the Spring Meet, the player who has tabbed the highest single day win payout will be awarded a $500 prize.
