To celebrate the $250,000 Calder Derby on Saturday, April 5, Calder will offer racing guests the opportunity to win a share of $1,000 in the Pick-7 Handicapping Challenge.
The Calder Derby will feature top 3-year-olds running 1 1/8 miles on the dirt. Switched from the main track to the turf course in 1998, the Calder Derby returns to dirt for the second year in a row. The race is expected to attract a strong field of sophomore runners seeking a launching point towards this year’s prestigious Triple Crown races.
The $1,000 Pick-7 Handicapping Challenge is free to enter for all new or existing members of TSC Elite, the racing Players Club for all Churchill Downs properties. The top 20 guests who select the most winners in seven consecutive races will win a share of $750, while another $250 will be awarded in a bonus drawing after the seventh race. Guests can pick up their entry form at the TSC Elite Players Club located on the second floor of the grandstand between 10:00 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.
Enrollment in TSC Elite is free for guests 18 or older.
Live racing continues at Calder year-round with a first post of 12:55 p.m.
