July 30, 2020
Scotty McKeever, a resident of Newport Beach, CA turned his $1,000 starting bankroll into $5,188.80 to win Monmouth Park’s fifth annual – but first-ever online – $2,000 Pick Your Prize Handicapping Challenge on Saturday, July 25.
McKeever bested a record field of 228 entries made up of players from over 30 states and Canada. The Pick Your Prize Challenge was rescheduled from May 30 due to Covid-19. All players participated through online ADWs TVG, 4NJBETS and Xpressbet.
For finishing first, McKeever received an automatic $11,475 and two picks from the Pick Your Prize board. With his two picks, McKeever selected the top cash prize of $9,750 and well as a seat to the 2020 Breeders’ Cup Betting Challenge. Including his bankroll, McKeever walked away with $26,413.80 plus a seat in the $10,000 BCBC.
After a $500 win bet hit in Monmouth Park’s eighth race, McKeever found himself with a bankroll of $1,532. His bankroll would decrease from there, leaving him $552 heading into Monmouth’s 13th and final race. An “all-in” cold exacta hit for McKeever, resulting in a contest-winning bankroll of $5,188.80.
Saturday’s second-place finisher was Gwyn Houston of Fallston, MD who finished with a bankroll of $4,895.
All Pick Your Prize players were required to bet at least $100 on a total of at least 10 races from Monmouth Park. Bets could only be win, place, show, exacta or any combination thereof.
All players kept their final bankrolls. The Top 5 finishers received a guaranteed cash prize. The Top 5 finishers all received two picks from the prize board in order of finish. Finishers 6 through 26 received one pick.
