Over six consecutive Saturdays in February and March, racing fans will be able to participate in a series of FREE handicapping contests at Virginia’s Off Track Betting (OTB)Centers where $1,000 in cash prizes will be doled out at each!
There are four OTBs in the state — Breakers Sports Grille is in Henrico, Ponies & Pints is in Richmond, Buckets Bar & Grill is in Chesapeake and The Windmill OTB Sports Grill is in Collinsville/Martinsville.
On contest days, horseplayers can stop by a participating site and fill out a free contest entry between 11 AM – 3 PM. Just select a horse to win in 8 different contest races, and the five players that accumulate the highest mythical bankroll based on where their horses finish and how much they pay will win $500 – $250 – $125 – $75 and $50 respectively.
Kickoff day is Saturday February 23rd and two sites will offer contests — Ponies & Pints in Richmond AND Buckets in Chesapeake.
