It’s time to gear up for the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event presented by Land Rover, and this year we want you to play along! After Team USA won the Dubarry Nations Team Challenge in 2014, the competition has heated up with the announcement of this year’s Team Challenge.
Four members from each country will be drawn at random to compete in the Dubarry Nations Team Challenge this year, and smaller countries will be put together onto a team with another nation. Throughout the weekend, the team objective will be to achieve the lowest possible cumulative score, with the winning team being crowned after show jumping on Sunday.
In honor of this year’s Team Challenge, we’re issuing a challenge to you: Can your fantasy Rolex Kentucky team beat the best nation at this year’s event?
Here’s how it will work:
How do I sign up? Follow this link, click “Play Now.” From there, you’ll want to enter your chosen team name into the box beneath “Join a Public League.” Once you’ve joined, you will be able to select four riders from the start list to complete your team by clicking “Manage Lineups.” You will not need to select any other riders after selecting your initial line-up.
Each horse and rider combination will be available for all players to choose from — there will be no “draft” as with other fantasy leagues. Please be sure to check the Game Log before selecting your choices to check for any new withdrawals!
Once you have selected your team, please follow this link to submit your tiebreaker picks. This is very important in the event of a tie, so be sure to make your picks or your entry will not be counted.
As with standard team competitions, you will be able to drop one score throughout the weekend in an effort to achieve the lowest possible cumulative score when the event concludes Sunday.
We’ll be updating scores each night, which will be emailed to you once they are updated, so keep an eye on your team members and cheer them on!
What’s on the line? Dubarry has generously offered a complete “Toe to Head” outfit to the winner of the Fantasy League. The lucky individual who picks the lowest cumulative scoring team in the league will win the outfit of their choice. How’s that for a makeover?
What if there’s a tie? When you submit your team, we will ask you via email to predict the winning individual horse and rider pair as well as their score. In the event of a tie, this prediction will be used as the tie breaker.
When do I need to sign up by? Sign ups are open now and will be open until noon EST on Monday, April 20. All teams will be locked in on Tuesday night before the first horse inspection.
We’d like to issue a huge thank you and many EN karma points to the brains behind Fantasizr, who have worked tirelessly to create our very own custom fantasy league.
If you have any questions at all throughout your set-up and the competition, don’t hesitate to email [email protected].
