The Meadowlands has announced a date for the Second National Harness Handicapping Championship--April 22, 2006. Wagering outlets across North America may once again participate in the NHHC by hosting qualifying events now through March 25, 2006.

Seventeen wagering outlets staged qualifiers for the inaugural NHHC and more than 100 entrants participated in the final on April 2, 2005. Jim Lang of Cohoes, N.Y., who earned his seat in the NHHC in a qualifier at Capital-OTB, was the winner of the $50,000 first prize in the inaugural championship event at the Meadowlands.

To participate, NHHC host outlets are required to pay the entry fee and live bankroll for two players. Entry into the 2006 NHHC is $1,000 per player, which includes the $600 non-refundable entry fee and $400 required bankroll.

A new feature of the 2006 NHHC will be a cocktail reception on Friday, April 21, 2006, the evening before the main event. A list of partner outlets and qualifying tournaments will be available on the NHHC home page at www.thebigm.com/nhhc.asp.
