Time for Some Fun in the Sun

How does that popular Martha and the Vandellas ’64 hit go? ‘…Summer’s here and the time is right for dancing in the streets.’ Sounds fun! On second thought, let’s pass on the street dancing. Don’t want anyone hit by a car. Instead, how about a little ‘Fun in the Sun’ online with Xpressbet? To be precise, that’s Xpressbet’s $100,000 Fun in the Sun Handicapping Challenge. 

Del Mar and Saratoga are off and running, so now’s your chance to make hay while the summer sun shines. Register FREE, today for Xpressbet’s entertaining and profitable Fun in the Sun Handicapping Challenge. In fact, stop reading this, log-in to your Xpressbet account and register right now! Don’t have an Xpressbet account? Why not? Correct that detail immediately, too.

Fun in the Sun registration is fast, simple and, did I mention, FREE? Then, each Saturday for the next seven weeks, make a live $10 win wager on one horse in each of 10 posted competition races ($100 total). The player with the most earnings each Saturday wins $4,000, with $2,000 to second and $1,000 to third. 

If you’ve been around the tournament block once or twice, then you know that those are fantastic weekly prizes, especially for an event boasting FREE registration. What’s even better is that players actually can make money playing Fun in the Sun without even winning a prize. Just back a nice-priced winner or two and…voila…you’re account balance is in the black. 

How many other handicapping tournaments can claim that? I got this one. Not many.

But wait…there’s more! Fun in the Sun earnings accumulate weekly throughout the season and ultimately decide rich seasonal prizes. So, the more often you play the better your chances of winning. And get this: The top four cumulative Fun in the Sun seasonal earners bag Pegasus World Cup Handicapping Championship seats—$12,000 values each! And, by the way, fifth place is worth $3,000. 

The Stronach Group’s Pegasus World Cup Handicapping Championship will be presented in conjunction with the world’s richest horserace--the $16 million Pegasus World Cup at Gulfstream Park in late January. Last season’s PWCHC guaranteed prize pool was $300,000 and you may recall the conclusion of that event. Former NHL star and current NBC Sports handicapper Eddie Olcyzk took a timeout from a determined cancer battle and rallied from off the pace to win with a successful trifecta play in the final race—the Pegasus World Cup. 

Edzo’s real-money final bankroll of $65,858.20 was a little more than $3,000 ahead of runner-up Tom Maloof at $62,294 and was worth a $137,500 first prize, plus a Breeders’ Cup Betting Challenge and National Horseplayers Championship package. Maloof got $38,500 and an NHC package for second. Third was Scotty McKeever, who earned $27,500 and an NHC package. In fourth was Eric Pineiro and he collected $19,250 plus an NHC package. Fifth was worth $13,750 plus an NHC package to Michael Holland.

Wouldn’t you love a crack at pocketing one of those juicy top-five prizes? All you gotta do to earn a spot in the PWCBC starting gate is to finish in the top four of Xpressbet’s Fun in the Sun’s seasonal competition. 

Is that easy? No. But it’s not impossible, either. You want ‘value?’ Here it is, staring you in the face. It’s the best proposition you’ll get all summer. Maybe all year. Plus, you don’t have to worry about matching up against players with multiple entries. Fun in the Sun limits Xpressbet account holders to one entry each.   

You know you’re gonna play the races from Saratoga and Del Mar this summer. So, why not take a shot at winning a share of $7,000 in weekly prizes and one of four $12,000 Pegasus World Cup Betting Championship seat seasonal awards? 

You gotta play. It’s a no-brainer. You got no choice. 

How do I know that Xpressbet’s $100,000 Fun in the Sun is a great way to spend the summer? Because I’m dying to participate. Rules say I can’t, though. So, I won’t. But I wish I could. I’d really appreciate a $12k scholarship entry into the Pegasus World Cup Betting Championship. 

Yep, summer’s here and the time is right for…Xpressbet’s $100,000 Fun in the Sun. It’s more fun than dancing in the streets and much safer. Don’t miss the season’s best opportunity to parlay a few steamy summer Saturdays into a massive January payday! 

Race On!
