The Triple Crown is a series of three horse races run in May and June. In a series of races, each race is called a leg. The Kentucky Derby is first, the Preakness second, and the Belmont third. The best of the 3 year old Thoroughbreds in the world come to race against each other for the greatest prize in sports. How the game is played: You will place your bets in here. You pick: -Win (First Place) -Place (Second Place) -Show (Third Place) Post positions are not drawn until Wednesday, and the best odds will go up at that time as well. You have until the race starts to post your choices here. If you get the Winner right you get 24 hrs of colors. Or... Get the Win, Place, and Show right amassing 96 hrs of VIPship. You can then choose to keep the hours saved until the next race and continue to add on to the number of hours you have colors. Each race can start over on betting. So Inty picks the Winner of the Kentucky Derby. He does not get the Place and Show right. He can have 24 hrs of VIPship or he can choose to save it for the Preakness. If he gets the Preakness winner right he can have 48 hrs of VIPship. If he saves it and gets the Belmont right he can have 72 hrs of VIPship. If Inty picks the Win, Place, Show of the Derby he can have 96 hrs of VIPship. He can also choose to save the hours and pick the Preakness as well. If he does this and loses (doesn't pick Win, Place, Show) then he gets no hours of VIPship. If he picks the Win, Place, Show again, he gets 8 days of colors. Or he can choose to gamble and pick the Belmont. If he picks the Belmont Win, Place, Show (I'm taking him to Vegas!) then he gets to have 2 weeks of colors. At any point the hours can be used up and restarted. So if he picks all three in the Derby, uses the colors, then picks the winner of the Preakness he gets another 24 hrs of VIPship. Sounds more complicated than it is, but we can go over this as much as we need to so you understand when the time comes. They don't have odds up yet so if you want to take a look at the horses you can go here. I will be updating the thread with more information as it becomes available. They usually do post positions on Wednesday and then the odds really start to shift. Also in the past we've talked about trying to combine some fake money with this. I'm willing to wager my icon for a week if anyone wants to get a little goofy let me know and we'll go from there.
