REVAMPED $10,000 ‘SHOWVIVOR’ SET FOR DEC. 26 LAUNCH, POPULAR ON-LINE CONTEST FEATURES $5,000 TOP PRIZE, IS FREE OF CHARGE AND REQUIRES PLAYERS TO TAB ONE IN-THE-MONEY RUNNER PER DAY

ARCADIA, Calif. (Dec. 20, 2013)—Santa Anita’s popular free online “Showvivor” is back and better than ever, with a total of $10,000 in prize money highlighted by a $5,000 top prize to be awarded to the longest “show streak” achieved throughout the course of Santa Anita’s Winter and Spring Meetings, which will open Dec. 26 and conclude June 29.

As in year’s past, “Showvivor” participants are required to select one horse from one race per racing day, and that horse must finish no worse than third in order for the player to “Showvive.” This season, if your horse does not finish in the money you can start up a new streak the very next day. The player with the longest “show streak” on Sunday, June 29 will be declared the winner of $5,000.

For the first time ever, the longest “show streak” is only one of the 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 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 the 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 finishers.

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. As in years past, daily online selections must be made no later than 10 minutes until first post time. Special early first post on opening day, Dec. 26, is at 12 noon.
