By participating in the Sweepstakes, each entrant unconditionally accepts and agrees to comply with and abide by these Official Rules and the decisions of Breeders’ Cup Limited, 215 West Main Street, Suite 250, Lexington, KY 40507 (“Sponsor”), which shall be final and binding in all respects. This Sweepstakes is in no way sponsored, endorsed, or administered by Instagram or Twitter. Instagram and Twitter are completely released of all liability by each entrant in this Sweepstakes.
ELIGIBILITY: Only legal U.S. residents residing in the fifty (50) United States and the District of Columbia who are eighteen (18) years of age or older are eligible to enter. Employees, officers and directors of Sponsor, Del Mar Thoroughbred Club and each of their respective parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, distributors, sales representatives, advertising and promotion agencies (collectively, the “Promotion Entities”) and the immediate family members, and/or those living in the same household of each, are ineligible to enter the Sweepstakes or win a prize. Sweepstakes is void where prohibited by law.
HOW IT WORKS:
To participate, you must first visit the Del Mar “Photo Op” area at Del Mar Racetrack (2260 Jimmy Durante Blvd., Del Mar, CA 92014) on Saturday, August 17 from 11:30 a.m. PT to 7:30 p.m. PT or on Sunday, August 18, 2019 from 12:00 p.m. PT to 6:00 p.m. PT and take a photo. Then, share your photo to your Twitter or Instagram account and include @breederscup (the “Tag”) and #BC21 and #sweepstakes (collectively, the “Required Hashtags”) and you will receive one (1) entry into the Sweepstakes. Limit one (1) entry per person per social media platform during the Promotion Period.
By posting a photo along with the Tag and Required Hashtags, you affirm that you have read, understand and agree to these Official Rules. Entrants understand that they are posting at their sole risk. Sponsor is not responsible for any claims arising from a post, specifically including, but not limited to, claims for intellectual property infringement and privacy rights violations, as well as violations of the respective social media site’s terms and conditions.
In the event of a dispute regarding the identity of the individual who actually submitted an entry cannot be resolved to Sponsor’s satisfaction, the affected entry will be deemed ineligible. The Promotion Entities shall not be responsible for incorrect or inaccurate entry information whether caused by Internet users or by any of the equipment or programming associated with or utilized in the Sweepstakes or by any technical or human error, which may occur in the processing of the entries in the Sweepstakes. The Promotion Entities assume no responsibility or liability for any error, omission, interruption, deletion, theft or destruction, or unauthorized access to, or alteration of entries. Incomplete entries will be disqualified. Proof of sending email is not considered proof of delivery to or receipt by Sponsor of such entry.
Photos must be in compliance with the respective social media platform’s terms and conditions and must not be obscene or offensive; must not depict alcohol, illegal drugs, tobacco, firearms/weapons, or any activities that may appear unsafe or dangerous or illegal; and must not be sexually explicit or suggestive, all as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. Photos must NOT include third parties/people, who have not expressly authorized in writing the entrant to feature their name or image in the photo or otherwise use such name or image in accordance with these Official Rules. Photos must be suitable for presentation in a public forum, at the sole discretion of Sponsor. Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to disqualify any entry in the Sweepstakes if Sponsor views the photo as potentially infringing or otherwise a violation or potential violation of a third party’s rights or if it deems the photo to be lacking in taste, quality, or to be otherwise objectionable. Any questions, comments or complaints regarding this Sweepstakes should be directed to Sponsor and not to Instagram or Twitter. Entries that are incomplete or generated by script, macro or other automated or mechanical means, that have been submitted through illicit means or by any means which subvert the entry process or that do not conform with or satisfy any or all of the conditions set out in the Official Rules will be void. Multiple entrants are not permitted to share the same Instagram or Twitter account or email addresses.
WINNER SELECTION AND NOTIFICATION: At the conclusion of the Promotion Period, a random drawing will be held from among all eligible entries received in accordance with these Official Rules to select one (1) potential winner. The potential winner will be notified via a direct message or reply to their photo via the social media platform used for entry. Sponsor shall have no liability for any winner notification that is lost, intercepted or not received by a potential winner for any reason. If, despite reasonable efforts, a potential winner does not respond as directed within seventy-two (72) hours of the first notification attempt, or if the prize or prize notification is returned as unclaimed or undeliverable to such potential winner, such potential winner will forfeit his or her prize and an alternate winner may be selected. Sponsor, in its sole discretion, will attempt to contact up to three (3) potential winners of a prize in accordance with the above procedure, after which the prize in question may go unawarded if it remains unclaimed. If any potential prize winner is found to be ineligible, or if he or she has not complied with these Official Rules or declines the prize for any reason prior to award, such potential prize winner will be disqualified and an alternate prize winner may be selected. The odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received.
PRIZE/APPROXIMATE RETAIL VALUE: One (1) Prize is available consisting of a ticket package for the 2021 Breeders’ Cup World Championships currently scheduled to take place from November 5 – November 6, 2021 at Del Mar Racetrack (2260 Jimmy Durante Blvd., Del Mar, CA 92014). The approximate retail value of the Prize is $1,000.
Any and all transportation to/from the event and any corresponding accommodations will not be provided by Sponsor and will be winner’s sole responsibility. Tickets must be used on the date designated by Sponsor. Tickets are subject to certain terms and conditions as specified thereon. Winner and his/her guest must comply with all venue rules and regulations. Failure to do so may result in forfeiture of prize.
GENERAL PRIZE CONDITIONS: The prize winner shall be solely responsible for all federal, state and/or local taxes, and the reporting consequences thereof, and for any other fees or costs associated with the applicable prize. Any potential prize winner must execute and have notarized an Affidavit of Eligibility, a Liability Release, and (where imposing such condition is legal) a Publicity Release (collectively, “Prize Claim Documents”). If winner fails or refuses to sign and return all Prize Claim Documents within five (5) days of prize notification (or a shorter time if required by exigencies), winner may be disqualified and an alternate winner may be selected.

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Sponsor is not responsible for incomplete, illegible, misdirected, misprinted, late, lost, damaged, stolen, or postage-due submissions or prize notifications; or for lost, interrupted, inaccessible or unavailable networks, servers, satellites, Internet service providers, websites, or other connections; or for miscommunications, failed, jumbled, scrambled, delayed, or misdirected computer, telephone or cable transmissions; or for any technical malfunctions, failures, difficulties or other errors of any kind or nature; or for the incorrect or inaccurate capture of information, or the failure to capture any information. Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any individual who is found to be tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Sweepstakes, to be acting in violation of these Official Rules, or to be acting in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner, or with the intent to disrupt or undermine the legitimate operation of the Sweepstakes, or to annoy, abuse, threaten or harass any other person, and Sponsor reserves the right to seek damages and other remedies from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law. No mechanically reproduced, illegible, incomplete, forged, software-generated or other automated multiple entries will be accepted. Sponsor reserves the right to modify, extend, suspend, or terminate the Sweepstakes if it determines, in its sole discretion, that the Sweepstakes is technically impaired or corrupted or that fraud or technical problems, failures or malfunctions or other causes beyond Sponsor’s control have destroyed or severely undermined or to any degree impaired the integrity, administration, security, proper play and/or feasibility of the Sweepstakes as contemplated herein. In the event Sponsor is prevented from awarding prizes or continuing with the Sweepstakes as contemplated herein by any event beyond its control, Sponsor shall have the right to modify, suspend, or terminate the Sweepstakes. If the Sweepstakes is terminated before the designated end date, Sponsor will (if possible) select a winner in a random drawing from all eligible, non-suspect entries received as of the date of the event giving rise to the termination. Inclusion in such drawing shall be each entrant’s sole and exclusive remedy under such circumstances. These Official Rules cannot be modified or amended in any way except in a written document issued by a duly authorized representative of Sponsor. The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of these Official Rules shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision. In the event that any provision is determined to be invalid or otherwise unenforceable or illegal, these Official Rules shall otherwise remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with their terms as if the invalid or illegal provision were not contained herein.
GOVERNING LAW: ALL ISSUES AND QUESTIONS CONCERNING THE CONSTRUCTION, VALIDITY, INTERPRETATION AND ENFORCEABILITY OF THESE OFFICIAL RULES OR THE RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS OF ENTRANTS OR SPONSOR IN CONNECTION WITH THE PROMOTION SHALL BE GOVERNED BY AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE INTERNAL LAWS OF THE COMMONWEALTH OF KENTUCKY WITHOUT GIVING EFFECT TO ANY CHOICE OF LAW OR CONFLICT OF LAW RULES OR PROVISIONS THAT WOULD CAUSE THE APPLICATION OF ANY OTHER STATE’S LAWS.
