« Return to News
In week six of the 2016 Hambletonian Society Grand Circuit Handicapping Challenge sponsored by DRF Harness, Green Acquisition Corporation, The Hambletonian Society, Hoosier Park Racing and Casino, Meadowlands Racing and Entertainment, Northfield Park, The Raceway at Western Fair District, Red Shores Charlottetown Driving Park, Tioga Downs, and Vernon Downs, Gordon Waterstone edged out several handicappers to be the top handicapper for the week. With regards to the overall lead, the story remains the same as Jay Hochstetler continues his mastery, extending his lead to 100.13 points over the second place Matt Rose with 389.75 points for the season thus far.
Levy Memorial night left handicappers with five races to display their handicapping chops and by the end of the night, five of the handicappers managed to score hat tricks which made it a horse race for weekly honors. With 41.10 points, Waterstone edges out the others (with a second and third place finish to go along with his hat trick), moving into fifth place from last week’s tenth place. Finishing second for the week was overall leader Hochstetler who earned 37.05 points, followed by a dead-heat for third with Dennis O’Hara and Matt Rose both earning 32 points for the week. Ray Garnett and Dennis O’Hara also had three winners on the card.
Though shut out from selecting any winners, fourteenth place Joe Bengston managed to have a good week thanks to his selection of Bettor Rock On N in the Levy eligible tilt which earned him 20.2 of his 28.2 weekly points by finishing second. (HANA)
