TrackMaster, TVG & USTA Announce $3,500 Harness Handicapping Challenge!

Published: June 7, 2012 04:10 pm EDT

Saturdays this summer harness racing fans will have their time to shine with a chance to compete for cash and prizes in the exciting Harness Handicapping Challenge. Be crowned the challenge champion and take home bragging rights and the ultimate prize of $2,000 cash!

Co-sponsored by TrackMaster, TVG and the USTA, the format of the challenge is pretty simple. There will be eight weeks of qualifying rounds with each Saturday a brand new chance to play and earn a spot in the finals. You’ll have a contest bankroll of $500 to make exactly 10 wagers of $50 each on horses to win. You’ll have the ability to pick and choose from any harness tracks, races and horses you like (US & Canada only).

The finals will be comprised of 30 players, the top three bankrolls from each of the weekly rounds plus six wildcards rewarding frequent and successful players. The wildcards are the three players who pick the most winners (minimum odds 1-1), and the highest ROIs (minimum 50 plays). Remember, there is no requirement to play every round and each week you get a fresh bankroll to wager.

TrackMaster will be providing free handicapping products, a different report each week, to support the contest. It runs every Saturday starting June 9, through July 28, wrapping up with the finals on Hambletonian day at the Meadowlands on August 4.
