2017 REMINGTON PARK HIGH-Q TEST

Spring Season Online Handicapping Contest

 

Remington Park offers visitors to remingtonpark.com the chance to participate in The Remington Park High-Q Test (THE TEST) during the 2017 American Quarter Horse & Mixed-breed Season at Remington Park.

 

THE TEST is a FREE online contest. Participants are required to register and provide a working email address as well as a residential address and contact phone number. Once doing so, they can logon to THE TEST and select one entry only in each of at least three game races selected by THE TEST administrator. Past performances for each challenge race are available on the game page. Participants are credited with a "virtual" $2.00 win (1st ), place (2nd ), and show (3rd ) or "across the board" wager on each of their selections. The total pari-mutuel payouts according to Remington Park official race results will be accrued to the participant's "virtual" bankroll.

 

EXAMPLE: if your selection in TEST RACE 1 finishes 2nd, paying $5.60 to place and $3.10 to show, your selection in TEST RACE 2 does not finish first, second, or third (off the board), your selection in TEST RACE 3 finishes 3rd and pays $3.20 to show, your “virtual” bankroll will be credited or increased by $11.90 ($5.60, $3.10 and $3.20).

 

Please note, on the following days more than three contest races will be used for THE TEST: Saturday, March 25, 2017 (Oklahoma Futurity Night); Saturday, April 22, 2017 (Remington Park Futurity Night); Sunday, May 14, 2017 (AQHA Challenge Stakes Day); Monday, May 29, 2017 (Oklahoma-bred Stakes Day) and Saturday, June 3, 2017 (Heritage Place Futurity Night). All of these dates will feature multiple stakes races at Remington Park, with many possibly used as contest races for THE TEST.

 

Participants continue in THE TEST until such day that none of their selections finishes in the top four of their respective race. Participants can remain in THE TEST by having at least one of their selections run in 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th in their respective race. However, they will get no "virtual bankroll” credit for a 4th-place finisher. Only selections that finish in 1st, 2nd or 3rd position will receive "virtual bankroll” credit based on the official pari-mutuel payoffs for that respective race. Please note: There is no maximum cap placed on the win, place and show payoffs.

 

Contestants playing THE TEST will have one ‘Life’ before getting knocked out of the game for any length of time, or permanently. Contestants can gain additional “Lives” by acquiring The LUCKY HORSESHOE which acts as a free pass that allows players to survive in THE TEST if they do not enter selections for a race day or if all of their race selections fail to finish in the top four positions of their respective race. The LUCKY HORSESHOE is an additional ‘life’ utilized to stay in the THE TEST. 

 

Contestants that lose all of their eligibility (regular life and any Lucky Horseshoes) may be forced to sit out a few days of THE TEST, being placed “In the Barn.” As each new racing week begins at Remington Park (normally on Thursdays) all contestants that had to sit ‘In the Barn’ due to losing eligibility, will be let back in THE TEST. The final get back in THE TEST Thursday will be on May 18, 2017. After that date, if a contestant loses all of their eligibility status (regular life and any Lucky Horseshoes) they will be completely eliminated from THE TEST and any consideration for prizes.

 

All eligible contestants will receive additional Lucky Horseshoes on Thursday, April 20, 2017 and again on Thursday, May 11, 2017. A contestant will have the ability to stockpile up to three (3) Lucky Horseshoes.

 

Those players that do not have to sit out any race days of THE TEST, will continue to make their selections and build their ‘virtual bankroll’ and number of winners while others are sitting out waiting to be let back in THE TEST on an appropriate Thursday. It is very beneficial to never be forced out of THE TEST for any period of time, to continue to build ‘virtual bankroll’ and selected winners for the entire contest.

 

Participants do not have to make a selection in all three races. In the event of a late scratch of a participant's selection, the participant's selection is automatically transferred to the post-time (off-time) favorite for the respective race. If a participant selects a "coupled" entry, and one (or in the case of a three-horse entry, two horse(s) is (are) scratched, the participant's choice is the remaining horse(s) in the originally selected entry. If all parts of a selected entry are scratched, the player receives the post-time favorite. If the post-time favorite is a "coupled" entry, the player receives the entire entry and will be credited with the pari-mutuel payout accordingly.

 

REGISTRATION

Participants who register for THE TEST in the timeframe leading up to the beginning of the game on Saturday, March 25, 2017 will begin THE TEST with ONE LUCKY HORSESHOE in addition to their regular player ‘Life.’

 

Contestants can continue to register for THE TEST after the beginning of the game on Saturday, March 25, 2017. However, they will not receive a LUCKY HORSESHOE to begin their play. Instead they will have only one ‘Life’ while they compete and wait for the new additional LUCKY HORSESHOES to come into play. The late-arriving contestants only accumulate ‘virtual bankroll’ beginning with the first contest day the play THE TEST.

 

Registration to play THE TEST will close 30-minutes before the first Remington Park race of the day on Thursday, May 18, 2017.

 

SURVIVING TO WIN PRIZES

Players must “survive” THE TEST through the end of the 2017 American Quarter Horse & Mixed-Breed Season at Remington Park (Saturday, June 3, 2017) in order to be eligible for prize consideration. If there are zero players to "survive" THE TEST, then prizes will be awarded based on the "virtual" bankroll of contestants at the time of their elimination. Check therphighqtest.com for complete updated standings.

 

THE TEST begins Saturday, March 25, 2017 and concludes when the last Remington Park live race is official on Saturday, June 3, 2017. THE TEST scoring is based on pari-mutuel information as supplied by the official Equibase Charts for Remington Park racing. Your race selections must be made no less than thirty (30) minutes prior to the start of the first race of a respective Remington Park racing program.

 

In the event of a tie for the highest accumulated “virtual” pari-mutuel total (bankroll), the player selecting the Most Winners throughout the contest will be declared the Grand Prize Winner. If there is still a tie for highest accumulated “virtual” bankroll after utilizing the tiebreaker, the contestants that are tied will split the prizes they are eligible to receive. For example if there is a tie for 1st Place with two contestants that cannot be separated using the tie-breaker, then those two contestants will split the combined 1st-place and 2nd-place prizes, evenly. This process will be used to decide all finishers eligible for prizes if need be.

 

Winners will be notified by email.

 

GOOD LUCK in The RP High Q Test in 2017!

 

PRIZES

THE TEST for the 2017 American Quarter Horse & Mixed-breed Season at Remington Park will offer the following cash prizes, distributed to the top finishers, based on highest accumulated ‘virtual bankroll.’ The cash prizes will be awarded to eligible contestants as follows: 1st Place/Grand Prize-$4,000; 2nd Place-$750; 3rd Place-$600; 4th Place-$500; 5th Place-$300; 6th Place-$200.

 

THE TEST contestant who compiles the Most Winners via their contest-race selections will receive a $1,000 cash prize. In the event more than one contestant shares the highest amount of Most Winners, then the tie-breaker for this prize will go to the contestant with the highest accumulated “virtual” bankroll. If still tied after that, the $1,000 will be split evenly among those tied for Most Winners selected.

 

It is a possibility that a contestant can receive both a ‘virtual bankroll’ cash-prize and the prize for correctly selecting the Most Winners.
