TVG has created a multi-race contest that will culminate with this year’s TVG Breeders’ Cup Mile (gr. IT) at Churchill Downs on Nov. 5.
Top prize of $450,000 in the “TVG $500,000 Champions’ Challenge” will be offered to those correctly selecting the winners of six qualifying Breeders’ Cup prep races and two Breeders’ Cup events, according to a TVG release. Contestants do not have to be TVG account holders to participate.
To be eligible for the top prize, individuals must select the winners of six Breeders’ Cup qualifying prep races from such TVG partner tracks as Belmont Park, Keeneland, and Woodbine held during the first three weekends of October, then correctly choose the winners of the Nov. 4 Breeders’ Cup Ladies’ Classic (gr.

The contest also includes a $45,000 prize for individuals who select the winner of at least one qualifying prep race and both Breeders’ Cup races, and a $5,000 prize for individuals who pick the most qualifying race winners. To be eligible for the $450,000 first prize, individuals must make their first selection by Oct.1.
