Answer the Bell for Hawthorne’s Heavyweight Championship

Lucrative handicapping contest on tap next weekend

Hawthorne’s $50,000 (estimated) Heavyweight Championship handicapping contest will be held next weekend, December 2-3, and entries are still available for $200 or 10,000 Club Hawthorne points (limit two per player). With paid entry, players will receive two days of track admission with a Daily Racing Form and buffet lunch as well as a 2007 Hawthorne season admission pass.

The top four finishers in the Heavyweight Championship will be rewarded with entry ($1,000 value) into the $1 million (estimated) Horseplayer World Series, to be held at the Orleans in Las Vegas January 18-20, along with hotel accommodations and a $500 travel voucher.

Twenty-five percent of the prize pool will be paid out to the champion, and that player will also receive a leather jacket and trophy. The top 15 finishers will be rewarded a cash prize, and 5 percent of the total prize pool will be paid out to the Day One leader.

Players can register in person at Club Hawthorne, or by phone at 708-780-3700. For more information and the official rules for Hawthorne’s Heavyweight Championship Handicapping Tournament, go to
