Draftstars Launches Horse Racing Contests


Daily fantasy specialists Draftstars is launching a new tournament for horse racing lovers with Wednesday's opening contest worth $20,000.

Draftstars, a Playup company, is launching its horse racing contests for the first time on February 26 with punters having to pick horses from six separate legs for a chance at the top prize.

The format for the new Draftstars horse racing contest can be found below.

How Does The Draftstars Horse Racing Contest Work?


The horse racing contests work similar to other sports on Draftstars, however there are a few differences.

The first thing you will notice is that there is no salary cap when selecting your horses.
Players will simply select 1 horse in each race.

The second change is to the scoring system. Final scores will be based on the official S-TAB dividends converted to points. 

For example, a horse that wins and pays a dividend of $12 would receive 12 points, and horse that places and pays a dividend of $2.40 would receive 2.4 points. Horses that win will receive both win and place dividends as points, horses that place will receive just the place dividends as points.
