|The object of the Citgo
Pick 6 Challenge is to pick the winner in each of six actual horse races
that are selected from racetracks across the country. Players will be given
15 selections to spread as they see fit across the half-dozen races. A
player may use as few selections as one per race or as many as 10, but
may not exceed a combined total of 15 for the six races. The contestant
who picks the six winning horses using the fewest number of selections
-- or horses -- will be declared a weekly winnner. Should no player pick
a winner in each of the six races, that week's prize money will be carried
over and added to the following week's $2,000 cash prize.
How to play:
1. Sign up and select a password. This will allow you to submit and then
subsequently modify your Pick 6 card, should you change your mind or a
horse should drop out of a race (otherwise known as a "scratch").
2. Study up on the races using the
linked Daily Racing Form .PDF files (requires Adobe Acrobat Reader, which
you will be able to download free) or your preferred provider for horse
3. Go to the race selection form
and make your picks using the checkboxes. A maximum of 15 selections can
be used in combination across the six races. Remember, in the case of a
tie, the entry with the fewest number of selections used will be deemed
the winner for the week. After you make your picks hit the "Submit" button.

4. Each race in the Citgo Pick 6
Challenge has an individual deadline for adjustments (listed above each
race description). You must enter the contest prior to the Race
1 deadline on the day the horse races actually occur, but you can adjust
Races 2 through 6 on your ticket (up until the deadlines established for
those individual races). You are responsible for checking for scratches
and adjusting your ticket accordingly. Since you are allowed to adjust
your entry form throughout the day the contest races occur, SCRATCHED HORSES
WILL NOT BE REPLACED WITH RACE FAVORITES. A SCRATCHED HORSE INCLUDED ON
AN ENTRY FORM AFTER AN INDIVIDUAL RACE DEADLINE PASSES WILL BE TREATED
AS A LOSING SELECTION.

EMAIL AND PASSWORD EACH WEEK in order to properly compile totals for the
Monthly and Grand Prize components of the contest.
