Grand River Raceway will be having an online RDC Survivor Betting contest. This will be an online contest only, and will involve just the ORDC races (1-9). The winner will receive a $100 betting voucher or a great swag bag.

The I Love Canadian Harness Racing Fan Club is gearing up for an exciting week of handicapping contests this week to commemorate each of the upcoming Regional Driving Championships (RDC). There will be a separate contest for each, but players’ point totals in each contest are added together to determine the winner, so be sure to play in all three contests this week and the final one for the QRDC. (July 9) Your challenge is to select the top two drivers from each region that will advance to the 2016 National Driving Championship (NDC) taking place at The Raceway at Western Fair District on Friday, October 14.


The Regional Driving Championships and the National Driving Championship will adapt the point system utilized in the World Driving Championship. Points will be awarded on the order of finish as follows:

Number of Starters: 9
16 (1), 11 (2), 8 (3), 6 (4), 5 (5), 4 (6), 3 (7), 2 (8), 1 (9)

Number of Starters 8:
15 (1), 10 (2), 7 (3), 5 (4), 4 (5), 3 (6), 2 (7), 1 (8).

In the event of a scratch, the driving rep drawn to a horse shall drive the ‘also eligible’ horse.

In the event of a horse being scratched or where no horse is available, five (5) points shall be awarded to the driver concerned. If a horse is disqualified or a horse and driver fail to complete the race, they will receive one (1) point.

In the event of a dead heat for any placing in any race the points for the horses involved will be added together and divided equally among the drivers concerned (eg. If there’s a dead heat for third between two horses, the points for third and fourth place will be added and divided among the drivers)
