Harness racing's only tournament to feature $100,000 in prize money, the World Harness Handicapping Championship (WHHC) will bring together the world's top handicappers on Saturday, April 13, at Meadowlands Racetrack. Players who have not qualified through a satellite tournament may buy directly into the WHHC final for $1,000 ($600 entry fee/$400 tournament bankroll). The WHHC entry fee includes a cocktail reception in Pegasus on Friday, April 12, and a dinner buffet on Saturday, April 13.
The WHHC contest format requires players to bet 10 races: their choice of seven Meadowlands races, plus three designated mandatory races from partner tracks. Players keep all pari-mutuel winnings. Prize payouts are to the Top 10, with first place secured at $40,000.
Registration deadline is 10 p.m., Thursday, April 11. For the contest entry form and complete rules,click here.
