Thank you for playing throughout 2021! Handicapping contests will return to Aqueduct in Spring 2022.
Live money handicapping contests allow you to compete alongside contestants online through NYRA Bets. The contest includes Aqueduct races (at least 5 races of your choice). Follow along with the races on America's Day at the Races while keeping track of your leaderboard standings on NYRA Bets. After the contest, your bankroll and prize winnings are shifted back into your NYRA Bets account to start betting or to withdraw.
State regulations don't allow participation in the online contest at this time. Please sign up for the onsite contest.
