With two stellar Kentucky Derby builds and the iconic Santa Anita Handicap headlining 15 stakes races on Saturday, Santa Anita Park and Gulfstream Park have joined forces through parent 1/ST Racing to creating a massive race day for punters.
In what 1/ST Racing officials dubbed “1/ST Saturday,” the two Stronach-owned tracks put together a combined card featuring nine stakes races (eight graded) from Gulfstream and six from Santa Anita. This map includes three Grade 1s: the Santa Anita Handicap, the Frank E. Kilroe Mile, and the Beholder Mile, all in Santa Anita. The day includes a total of $4.15 million in equity awards.
It also includes two of the nation’s best Grade 2 Derby preparations: the San Felipe Stakes at Santa Anita and the Fountain of Youth at Gulfstream. The two $400,000 races are essentially “win and you’re in” preps, offering 50-20-10-5 Derby points to its top four finishers.
The tracks offer two Coast-to-Coast Pick 5s, one for dirt and one for grass. Both Pick 5s come with 12% takeout and a $1 minimum.
1/ST Racing puts $5 million up for grabs; simply choose 15 bet winners
Along with this, 1/ST Racing is testing riders’ handicapping abilities by tempting them with a $5 million prize. All you have to do is choose the winners of the 15 stakes races on the two tracks. The person with the most winners among the 15 wins a VIP trip to the 2022 Preakness Stakes in Pimlico.
Then there is the 1/ST Racing Ultimate Betting Challenge. This real money tournament comes with a buy-in of $3,500 and a prize pool of $25,000. Players compete for a cash pool of $75,000 and entry into handicap tournaments for the remainder of 2022.
