The Thoroughbred Racing Challenge game is a free online horse racing fantasy contest tracking the 3-year-old horses, trainers and jockeys on the Triple Crown trail (website). It was previously run as a private family game of the Ball family for over 20 years. Only 1,000 participants will be accepted for 2020.
The Thoroughbred Racing Challenge game puts you in the position of being the best jockey in the nation with your pick of the best horse to ride in any of the prep races anywhere in the country. Your choices will be graded with “virtual payoffs” of a “$2Win-Place-Show” mythical wager on your choice in each of the races. The competition begins with the GII Risen Star S. at Fair Grounds Feb. 15 and ends with the GI Belmont S. June 6.
