Learn About the Eliminator Tournament

The Eliminator Tournament

What is the Eliminator Tournament?

The Eliminator is the largest virtual horse racing tournament in the world, presented exclusively by Digital Downs. There is one goal - Survive and Advance!

Expect fast paced action where you will no doubt experience the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat. Good horses, skillful strategy mixed with a little luck might advance your horse to the next round but only the special horses will survive and reach the final race and potentially become the next Eliminator Champion

Hundreds of horses will be entered into the tournament. The more entries the better as you do your best to avoid the early knockout in this very unique set up that has sprinters and routers colliding with classic distance horses at a 1 mile dirt track.

Digital Downs will sponsor The Eliminator event with $3,000 in prizes on top of any actual race purse.
