Thoroughbred racing contests continue to flourish all around Las Vegas and Henderson.

Here are some of the best for the daily horse players.

Stations Casinos:

Free match race contests are being held at Palace, Boulder, Texas, Sunset, Santa Fe, Green Valley Ranch and Fiesta Ranch. The matches are usually at Southern California and Northern California tracks. There is a $2,000 winner take all with a progressive bonus pool of $500 for a perfect card.

Check out the rules at your favorite Stations book. The one entry per person rule is strictly enforced.

Also, there is a free Southern Cal horse racing contest at Excalibur on Wednesday and Circus Circus on Fridays. The total purse is $1,000. There is a $50 award to the leader after the first two races and $100 to the entrant ahead after the first 4. Players must be present to win. These rules are similar to the former Twin Q contest. Entry is free.

Coast Casinos continues their free $2,000 contest on Wednesday, Thursday and Fridays. It involves the first five races at Santa Anita. Check GamingToday for all future contest information.
