StableDuel has announced its largest promotional contest to date, Back2Back at the Breeders' Cup. Back2Back at the Breeders' Cup will be held over two days of racing centered around the Breeders' Cup at Santa Anita Park Nov. 1 and Nov.2. Back2Back is free to enter and features $20,000 in total prizes–5,000 on Friday to the top 50 finishers and $15,000 on Saturday to the top 75 finishers. Entries open when fields are drawn and close before the first post each day. Modeled after the traditional “salary cap” style daily-fantasy games, StableDuel contests require players to select a stable of horses from a specific race card within the confines of a salary cap. Horses are assigned a price (or salary) based on their morning-line odds. Contestants earn points when their horse finishes in the top five places, based on the order of finish and the margin of victory or defeat. Partcipants can download the StableDuel app for iOS and Android, create an account and draft a stable. The iOS version is available now and the Android version will be released Oct. 16.
“StableDuel was created out of a love for horse racing and a desire to reach a new generation of fans,” said StableDuel CEO Augie Greiner Jr. “Our industry needs to continue to explore new avenues of growth, much like all mainstream sports.”
