While the contest is free to play, only those who make a minimum of a $20 contribution are eligible to win the Breeders’ Cup ticket. The investment we’re asking you to make is only a fraction of the overall cost of the ticket. Whether you win the contest or not, it’s a win-win situation because you’ll be helping ensure good futures for racehorses. You can do so by sending your contributions via PayPal to

Note that we’re asking all donations to be sent to our PayPal account so that we can have an accurate total on the amount of money we’ve raised. That will be especially important when we ask our sponsor(s) to match our fundraising total, which in less than week is already approaching $1,000! Thank you all for your support.
