This guide covers the repeatable activity accessible from A stroke of luck! (3 FATE) on A day at the races. This content is FATE-locked, so per this Wiki's Content Policy, the covered content will not otherwise be included on the Wiki, and the guide may contain mechanical descriptions but not narrative content.
This action brings you to a new location. The activities here are repeatable as long as you do not leave the area it brings. There are unique cards, repeatable storylets, and a carousel.
This location has a unique Opportunity Deck. It is pulls from your same draw pool, and uses the same hand size you normally have. All cards are discardable. If you have a 5 card hand size, you will draw one of every card.

You will start with 6 x Time Remaining... and each action you take will decrement it by 1 or 2. Your goal over the course of this carousel is to increase your In the Lead as much as you can and then at 7 x Time Remaining... there will be one final challenge based on In the Lead to determine the payout. There are 2 different tracks depending on whether you currently have any In the Lead, and when you do not have any, you will have opportunities to acquire Burst of Speed!s which can be spent to gain In the Lead.
The final rewards are based on your ending In the Lead which caps at 4 and can be found in the table below:
|In the Lead||Reward|
On each level of Time Remaining..., there is an option to leave the carousel and return to the main lobby if you're not sure you'll win, or the option to leave the area altogether.
The best route to complete this in the fewest number of action is to take the options that result in a loss of 2 Time Remaining.... This will make the carousel take 6 actions and get you the max rewards 80% of the time. This is an average of 2.1 making waves per action. Otherwise, losing provides 1 of each of the second chances for a similar number of actions.
