First Prize is two box seat tickets to the 2014 Kentucky Derby, second prize is two box seat tickets to the 2014 Kentucky Oaks, and the third prize is a Distorted Humor halter. All three of the top prizes also include a ‘behind-the-scenes’ VIP guided tour of WinStar Farm for up to four people, a WinStar gift basket, and a complimentary WinStar StableMates Grade II Membership for the rest of 2014.
Among other horses, WinStar is campaigning Commissioner and Constitution on this year's Derby Trail.
“This contest makes it really easy for fans to get interested in the Derby prep races, and get to know and follow the horses who are on the Derby watch lists,” said Elliott Walden, President and CEO. “WinStar is committed to being a leader, not only on the track and in breeding, but in all efforts in lifting the profile of Thoroughbred racing, especially connecting with our great fans through WinStar StableMates. The contest is easy and fun to play, and the prizes we are offering should appeal to even the most casual racing fan.”
