OFFICIAL RULES & HOW TO ENTER
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. VOID WHERE PROHIBITED BY LAW.
By entering the Breeders’ Cup Million Dollar Finish Contest (the “Contest”), you unconditionally acknowledge and agree to the following official rules (the “Official Rules”):
ELIGIBILITY: The Contest, hosted by Breeders’ Cup Limited (“Sponsor”), a New York not-for-profit corporation, with offices located at 215 West Main Street Suite 250, Lexington, KY 40507, is open only to legal residents of the United States (including D.C.) and Canada (excluding Quebec) who are eighteen (18) years of age or older at the time of entry. Directors, officers, employees, agents, and independent contractors of Sponsor or the Stronach Group, or any of their respective subsidiaries, parents, affiliates, advertising and promotion agencies, retailers, distributors (collectively, “Contest Entities”), and their immediate family members, and/or those living in the same household of each are not eligible to enter or win. All entries prohibited by applicable law shall be deemed to be void. Sponsor reserves the right to verify all eligibility requirements. Contest is subject to all applicable federal, province/state, and local laws and regulations.
TIMING: The Contest begins on October 30, 2023, at 12:00 PM EST, or when the Classic draw is completed and the field is set, whichever is later, and ends on November 4, 2023, at 6:40 PM EST (the “Contest Period”). A drawing to determine the Winner (as hereinafter defined) will be held within seven (7) days of the conclusion of the Contest Period.
ENTRIES RECEIVED AFTER THE CLOSE OF THE CONTEST PERIOD WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.
HOW TO ENTER: Visit www.breederscup.com/contest (the “Website”) and follow the on-screen instructions to complete the online registration process and enter the Contest. Entries must be received during the Contest Period. Limit one (1) entry per person for the entire Contest Period. Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify or deny any entry for any reason, in its sole and absolute discretion.
The Contest is an online game that allows Entrants to demonstrate their skill and knowledge of horse racing. Once registered, Entrants will have the opportunity to use their skill and knowledge of horse racing to select all of the horses running in the 2023 Breeders’ Cup Longines Classic (“the Classic”) in the correct official order of finish for a chance to win the Grand Prize as described below. In the case of a tie, the “Tie Breaker” described below will determine the winner of the Grand Prize. If the Grand Prize is not awarded, the Runner-Up Prizes will be awarded as set forth below.
PRIZE DETERMINATION: In the event any Entrant timely and correctly picks all of the horses in the Classic in the final official order, such Entrant will have an opportunity to win the Grand Prize subject to verification of eligibility and subject to all other terms and conditions of these Official Rules. In the event one (1) or more of Entrant’s picks is scratched or otherwise does not start in the Classic, such horse(s) will be automatically removed from Entrant’s selections; the Entrant’s remaining horses will be moved up in order of finish; and such horse(s) will be automatically replaced with any also eligible horses (if any) in order of priority. In the event there are nine (9) or fewer horses that actually run in the Classic, the Grand Prize will not be awarded. In the event of a tie for the Grand Prize, the “Tie Breaker” described below will determine the winner of the prize in question.
If no Entrant(s) selects all of the horses in the final official order for the Classic, then the Grand Prize will not be distributed; however, in such a case all Entrants with the highest number of correct selections in the final official order for the Classic will be eligible to win one of five (5) Runner-Up Prizes as set forth below. Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries.
If no entries are properly or timely received, then neither the Grand Prize nor any Runner-Up Prize will be distributed.
Tie-Breaker: At the time of registration for the Contest, Entrants must provide their prediction for the final time of the Classic as set forth in the official chart for Classic published by Equibase Company. In the event of a tie, the tied Entrant who predicts the final time closest without going over will be the winner of the Grand Prize. In the event of a tie and two (2) or more Entrants have the same tie-breaker prediction, the Grand Prize will be split evenly among those Entrants that are tied and have the same tie-breaker prediction.
WINNER NOTIFICATION: The Winner of a Prize will be notified by email, telephone, and/or US mail within approximately seven (7) days of the conclusion of the Contest Period. The Winner may be required to complete and return to Sponsor documents of Sponsor’s choosing, including, without limitation, tax documents, a notarized Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability, and where permissible, a Publicity Release (“Affidavit/Release”), within seven (7) days of the date such notification is given. If Sponsor is unable to contact the Winner within twenty-four (24) hours of initial notification; or if Sponsor has not received an Affidavit/Release and/or any other required document(s) within the time period provided, then such Prize will be forfeited, and the Sponsor may, in its sole and absolute discretion, determine an alternate Winner.
GRAND PRIZE: There is one (1) grand prize (the “Grand Prize”) available consisting of US$1,000,000. The Grand Prize will be awarded in the form of an annuity that pays out US$25,000 per year for forty (40) years without interest. The Grand Prize will only be awarded if all conditions in these Official Rules are met. THERE IS NO GUARANTEE THE GRAND PRIZE WILL BE AWARDED.
The total approximate retail value (“ARV”) of the Grand Prize is US$1,000,000.
OTHER PRIZES: If the Grand Prize is not awarded, up to five (5) US$1,000 prizes (each, a “Runner-Up Prize” and, collectively, “Runner-Up Prizes”, and together with the Grand Prize, the “Prizes” or the “Prizes”, as the case may be) will be awarded to the Entrant(s) who made the highest number of correct selections. In the event of a tie among more than five (5) Entrants for the Runner-Up Prizes, the Winner(s) of the Runner-Up Prizes shall be selected from among such Entrants by random drawing conducted by Sponsor.
The total ARV of the Runner-Up Prizes is US$5,000.
GENERAL PRIZE CONDITIONS: Winner may not substitute, assign or transfer any Prize or any portion thereof. If any Prize cannot be awarded due to circumstances beyond the control of Sponsor, a substitute prize of equal or greater retail value may be awarded.
Winner shall be solely responsible for all applicable federal, state and local taxes that become due with respect to any Prize, including taxes imposed on his/her income.
Except where prohibited by law, entry and acceptance any Prize constitutes permission for Sponsor and its agents to use each Winner’s name, prize won, hometown, likeness, biographical information, voice and statements for purposes of advertising, trade, promotion and publicity (including online posting) in any and all media now or hereafter known throughout the world in perpetuity, without additional compensation, notification or permission. Winners also agree to participate in and cooperate with any promotional activity and/or publicity relating to the Contest, as Sponsor may reasonably request from time to time.
If a selected Winner cannot accept or receive any Prize for any reason, or if Sponsor determines at any time in its sole discretion that a Winner is disqualified, ineligible, or in violation of these Official Rules, Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to select an alternate Winner. If any person supplies false information, obtains entries by fraudulent means or is otherwise determined to be in violation of these Official Rules in an attempt to obtain any Prize, Sponsor may disqualify that person and pursue any and all available legal remedies.

12.1 Agreement: You and the Breeders’ Cup agree that we will resolve any dispute or question arising as to the interpretation of any clause of, or the rights and liabilities of the parties under or in any manner relating to these Terms and connected in any manner with use of the Service (a “Claim”) in accordance with one of the subsections below or as the Breeders’ Cup and you otherwise agree in writing.
12.2 Conflicts of Laws; Jurisdiction; Venue: These Terms and the relationship between you and the Breeders’ Cup with respect to the Service shall be governed by the laws of the Commonwealth of Kentucky without regard to the conflicts of laws rules thereof. Except as otherwise provided under this Dispute Resolution Section, you and the Breeders’ Cup agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction and proper venue of the Fayette Circuit Court and/or the Eastern District of Kentucky, in each case in Lexington, Fayette County, Kentucky, and waive any right to trial by jury.
12.3 Arbitration: Any Claim shall be referred to final and binding arbitration before a single arbitrator in Lexington, Kentucky, under the rules and procedures of the American Arbitration Association relating to the selection of arbitrators for the determination of issues. The arbitration shall be governed by the United States Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16. This agreement to arbitrate is supported by adequate consideration, receipt of which is acknowledged. The decision of the arbitrator will be binding, final and conclusive on the parties, and judgment on the arbitrator’s decision may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. This agreement to arbitrate is binding upon the respective successors, heirs, legal representatives, assigns and transferees of the parties. The arbitrator may, sua sponte or upon the written request of a party, issue written directions as to the scope and timetable for discovery. In the event that the arbitrator should determine that the matter(s) in dispute may be resolved by a review of a written record, and that a hearing is not necessary, each party waives the right to a hearing. The arbitrator shall be charged to render a written opinion reciting the facts as determined and the applicable law as applied. The arbitrator may award injunctive and other equitable relief, as well as an award of monetary damages. No claim of fraud, duress or other basis for revocation of contract made with respect to these agreed Terms shall limit or preclude the enforcement of this agreement to arbitrate except as such fraud, duress or other basis for revocation shall arise with particularity to this agreement to arbitrate, and each party conclusively agrees that this provision shall be interpreted in a manner consistent with the separability doctrine of Prima Paint Corp. v. Flood and Conklin Mfg. Co., 388 U.S. 395 (1967).
12.4 Waiver: Neither you nor the Breeders’ Cup will participate in a class action or class-wide arbitration for any Claims covered by this agreement to arbitrate. YOU ARE GIVING UP YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE AS A CLASS REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS MEMBER ON ANY CLASS CLAIM YOU MAY HAVE AGAINST US INCLUDING ANY RIGHT TO CLASS ARBITRATION OR ANY CONSOLIDATION OF INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATIONS.
12.5 Improperly Filed Claims: All Claims brought under this Section must be resolved in accordance with this Dispute Resolution Section. All Claims filed or brought contrary to this Section shall be considered improperly filed. Should you file a Claim contrary to this Section, the Breeders’ Cup shall be entitled to recover its reasonable attorneys' fees and costs actually incurred, provided that the Breeders’ Cup has notified you in writing of the improperly filed claim, and you have failed to promptly withdraw the claim.
12.6 Survival: Subject to Section 14.1, this Section 12 shall survive any termination of these Terms and will continue to apply even if you stop using the Service or terminate your Account.
13.2 Survival: Unless prohibited by applicable law, the provisions of these Terms that should reasonably survive termination will remain in effect, including, without limitation, Sections 8 through 14.
14.1 Severability: In the event that any portion of these Terms is held to be invalid, the invalidity of such provision will not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of the Terms, which will remain in full force and effect.
14.3 No Waiver: The failure of the Breeders’ Cup to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
14.4 Limitations Period: Any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Service or these Terms must be filed within one year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred unless a longer period is mandated by applicable statute and, in such a case, you are limited to the maximum period permitted by law.
