WinStar Launches Belmont Stakes Challenge

Free to enter, online contest offers prizes to fans that correctly select trifecta.

WinStar Farm has launched the 2013 WinStar StableMates Belmont Stakes Challenge contest, which is free for racing fans, easy to play, and offers unique prizes.

Part of WinStar's StableMates initiative for fans, the Belmont Stakes Challenge allows each participant to select in order the winner, runner-up, and third-place finisher of the June 8 Belmont Stakes (gr. I), with the goal of correctly selecting the "trifecta" horses. As a tiebreaker, participants are asked to choose margins in between each of the top four finishers in this year's final jewel of the Triple Crown.

Elliott Walden, CEO of WinStar Farm, sees the Belmont Stakes Challenge as another step in WinStar's desire to engage with racing fans through the WinStar StableMates website.

"This contest makes it really easy for fans to get interested in the last leg of the 2013 Triple Crown, which happens to be one of America's most historic events on the racing calendar," said Walden. "The Belmont Stakes is the Test of Champions, and it's a race that's especially dear to WinStar, with Drosselmeyer having won it. Obviously, we are hoping that Revolutionary  can join the club this Saturday."

Fans must enter by Friday, June 7 at midnight by selecting the first three finishers with the margins tiebreaker, to be eligible to win the prizes. They can register to play today at

Prizes will be awarded for the first three finishers in the contest. For more details on prizes, visit the contest website.
