Eligibility

The following are ineligible to participate: officers and employees of Northlands Park or any members of their immediate families.

To participate, visit Northlands Park ShowVivor, sign up, then select one horse on each of the remaining race days of the 2017 Northlands Park live meet (through Saturday, September 16th, 2017) to finish no worse than third. If successful on the first day of the contest, the contestant moves on to the second contest day (June 3rd) and so on.

Entrants who correctly select a horse to finish no worse than third are eligible to select a horse for the following race day and continue in the contest. Entrants who fail to correctly select a horse that finishes no worse than third or fail to make a selection before the deadline of any race day are eliminated from the contest.

In the event an entrant's selection is a late scratch or declared a non-starter for pari-mutuel wagering purposes, the entrant will receive the actual betting favorite in that respective race.

In the event the entrant selects a horse that is part of a coupled entry or mutuel field, you will receive both horses in the coupled entry in the Northlands Park ShowVivor contest. Therefore, one of the coupled horses must finish no worse than third for the entrant to remain eligible in the contest.

Entrants cannot make more than one selection in any one race day. Selections are final. Selections must be placed by the contestant only at Northlands Park ShowVivor webpage. The entrant is solely responsible for ensuring that his or her selection is correct. No changes will be made once wagering is closed.

In the event that the entrant did not make any selections or missed the deadline to make selections, the entrant is then disqualified from the contest. Northlands Park is not liable for any events which may cause the entrant to miss contest deadlines.

In the event that multiple contestants are still alive on Saturday, September 2nd, 2017, then beginning with that date a tie-breaker will be put in place and will be in effect until the contest ends or the meet ends on Saturday, September 16th, 2017. The tie breaker will be the highest show price payoff prior to Saturday, September 2nd, 2017. The second tie-breaker will be the highest show price payoff after Saturday, September 2nd, 2017. If a single ShowVivor player wins the contest before Saturday, September 16th, 2017, then the tie-breaker condition will not be in effect. This condition will only take place should there be more than one (1) contestant still alive after the races on Saturday, September 16th, 2017 or if the final contestants are eliminated on the same day.

How to Play

The goal of the Northlands Park ShowVivor contest is to select one horse from the remaining race days of the 2017 Northlands Park live thoroughbred meet (through Saturday, September 16th, 2017) to finish no worse than third.
