Welcome to the 2020 Stay Lucky season with presenting sponsor Breeders' Cup! We have several exciting new prizes plus a smoother, faster app for the new season!
If you’re reading this, chances are you’ve downloaded the app and are ready to start picking winners. If you have not yet downloaded Stay Lucky, what are you waiting for?
The Android version of the app on Google Play can be downloaded here.
Stay Lucky offers participants the opportunity to win great prizes by stringing together winners in Thoroughbred races. Unbroken streaks of five, seven, nine, 14, 17 and 20 reward the players with a prize or choice of prizes. Terms and conditions apply.
The object is simple: pick winners from North American graded stakes races that draw at least seven entrants. Races will be scored in real time but streaks will be updated only once daily to make sure they are scored in the correct order.
Pick as many races each weekend as you like, but be sure to play at least one race every weekend or your streak will be reset.
This weekend’s Stay Lucky slate is headlined by multiple graded stakes on both Saturday and Sunday at Woodbine.
Saturday, Sept. 19
Singspiel Stakes (4:27 p.m. ET): Tiz a Slam (#7) has not been good this year or really for the last 12 months, but he does love this turf course (5-for-10) and he won this race a year ago. The most lukewarm of selections. I’d pass the race unless I was sitting on zero.
Ricoh Woodbine Mile Stakes (5:39 p.m. ET): March to the Arch (#1) figures to get an ideal setup here with a ton of pace in this race to set up his explosive finishing kick. He’s 2-for-2 at Woodbine and enters off a dominant win at this course and distance.
Sunday, Sept. 20
Natalma Stakes (TBD p.m. ET): Race analysis to come once entries become available.
Salvator Mile Stakes (TBD p.m. ET): Race analysis to come once entries become available.
Summer Stakes (TBD p.m. ET): Race analysis to come once entries become available.
