Free Road To The Derby Handicapping Contest at Ponies & Pint, Buckets OTBs

Date: February 23, 2019
Time: 11:00 am  to  6:00 pm

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!

Ashley Moulton won $500 in the Ponies & Pints second anniversary handicapping contest January 19th.

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.

Buckets Bar & Grill is located in the Great Bridge neighborhood of Chesapeake, in the Battlefield Shopping Center just before the drawbridge.

Kickoff day is Saturday February 23rd and two sites will offer contests — Ponies & Pints in Richmond AND Buckets in Chesapeake.
