Santa Anita’s popular free online “Showvivor” returns to The Great Race Place Dec. 28. With a special early first post time of 11:00 a.m., the contest offers fans a total of $5,000 in prize money, highlighted by a $2,500 top prize-to be awarded to the longest “show streak” over the course of Santa Anita’s winter/spring meet, which will conclude June 21.
Registration at santaanita.com is free and easy and Showvivor participants are required to select one horse from one race each racing day. That horse must run no worse than third in order for the player to “Showvive.” If the player’s selection fails to run 1-2-3, that individual is not totally eliminated, as he or she may start up a new streak the next racing day. The player with the longest “show streak” June 21 will be declared the top prize winner of $2,500.
The longest “show streak” is one of just five separate ways. The others are win streak, which is worth $1,000, and total wins, total places and largest single win payout, each offering $500.
