Santa Anita’s $5,000 ‘Showvivor’ Online Betting Contest To Return For Track’s Opening Day, Saturday, Sept. 19


ARCADIA, Calif. (Sept. 10, 2020)–With $5,000 in total prize money at stake, Santa Anita’s popular “Showvivor” free online betting contest is set to return for the track’s 18-day Autumn Meet, which opens on Saturday, Sept. 19.

Showvivor requires players to select one horse in one race each day they play, and that horse must finish no worse than third in order for the player to remain “alive.”  A top prize of $2,500 will be awarded to the longest “show streak” achieved throughout the course of the meet, which will conclude on Sunday, Oct. 25.

Showvivor participants will not be eliminated if their selection finishes off the board.  Instead, they will be able to begin a new streak the next racing day–with the eventual top prize going to the player with the longest streak.

Including the longest “show streak,” contestants will have five separate ways to win beginning Sept. 19:

-SHOW STREAK:  The player with the longest “show” or no worse than third place finish streak at the end of the meet will win the Grand Prize of $2,500.  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 $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 end of the meet, the top player with the most total wins will take a $500 cash prize.

-TOTAL PLACES:  This also carries a cash prize of $500 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 $500 cash prize.

Players are encouraged to sign up as early as possible at, although registration will be available after Sept. 19.  As in years past, daily online selections must be made no later than 10 minutes prior to first post time, which will be at 12:30 p.m. each racing day.
