Races Announced For Saturday’s (Feb. 10) Free $500 Handicapping Contest At Buckets OTB

$500 in cash prizes will be up for grabs in a free handicapping contest Saturday February 10th at the Buckets Bar & Grill OTB in Chesapeake. Tampa Bay Downs hosts their Festival Preview Day card that day which includes a key Derby prep race — the $250,000 Sam F. Davis Stakes. Fans will get a chance to select a horse in 8 contest races. They will receive a mythical $2 win/place bet on each of those selections. The contestants that accumulate the five highest bankrolls will share in the $500 prize pool as follows:

1st – $250;  2nd – $125;  3rd – $60;  4th – $40; 5th – $25

The Buckets OTB in Chesapeake has handled over $32,000 per day since opening in mid-November.

Here are the 8 confirmed contest races. All contestants will receive FREE past performance pages of all 8 races. Entries must be deposited by the start of the first contest race at 3:15 PM. The last contest race is at 5:30 PM. Contestants do not have to be present at the last race to claim their prize — it can be picked up at a future visit.
