ShowVivor down to final 19 players as week 5 of the contest begins

Portland Meadows Ultimate ShowVivor Online Contest is really heating up, as 19 players remain alive as the contest enters its fifth week.  What started on October 24th with 1892 players has steadily been dwindled down to the final 19, all of whom are still eligible for a $10,000 prize if they can make it the entire season without having one of their selections finish off the board.  The other cool prize that comes with this is the chance to be the Daily Racing Form Guest Handicapper for Portland Mile Day during the 2012 Portland Meadows Summer Meeting.

Warnock takes home the Baxter Andruss Futurity Finals

Warnock made it a perfect two for two at Portland Meadows as he and Luis Torres scored a hard fought win over stable-mate Booken in the $33,800 Baxter Andruss Oregon-bred Futurity Finals at Portland Meadows.  Sent off as the even money favorite, Warnock broke very well under Torres and took the lead right away.  Booken also broke sharply and gave his stable-mate everything he wanted, as they battled the entire 350 yards, with just a neck separating them at the wire.

Portland Meadows ShowVivor contest is entering its third week and the starting field of 1892 players that begun on October 24th has been narrowed down to 227.   The contest sounds easy enough, pick one horse to show each day and move onto the next day.  But as 1665 players learned over the first six days of the contest, all it takes is one horse to not show up and run its best race or just a little bad racing luck and you can be out.
