After three years of nobody running the table on the Triple Crown trail with $20 show bets, an amazing 10 players this year completed the 20-race journey culminating in the Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands and winning $100,000 each.

But there were other winners as well, as offered other opportunities to play along including social media contests and a friendly rivalry with Churchill Downs Race Track handicappers.

On Facebook, John Ball Sr. (“pop-pop”) wins an iPad for having the most horses to show. He also won one of our $50 weekly prizes.

The intramural competition ended up being a route, as Churchill Downs Race Track took it to the TwinSpires team. Churchill’s online wagering platform will make a $500 donation to the charity of the winning team’s choice plus another $500 donation in the name of Gary Palmissano, who lasted longest among the players.

Thank you to everyone who played along either via $20 show bets on or through social media. Please stay tuned to all our channels—Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, Instagram—for fun and exciting contests as American Pharoah goes for the Triple Crown and throughout the year!
