Billion dollar bracket challenge ends tonight

PHOENIX (CBS5) -

He's one of richest men in the world. Now Warren Buffet wants to share the wealth. One billion dollars to be exact.

All you have to do is fill out a perfect bracket. But what are the chances of winning? We asked a man who knows about odds. Vincent Francia is the general manager of this North Valley horse track.

"It's a lot easier to pick the winner of a horse race here at Turf Paradise or find the Lost Dutchman Gold out in the Superstitions than to pick a perfect bracket," said Francia.

The odds are more than one in 9.2 quintillion. Chances of winning do improve if you know a little something about college basketball to one and 128-billion.

Francia did offer a bit of advice.

"What horse racing and March Madness have in common is looking for that horse or that team that is peaking at the right time," said Francia.

The deadline to fill out one of Buffet's brackets is 1:00 a.m. EST.
