Sportsman's Park News Release

Contact: John Brokopp, 773-242-1121, Ext. 309


The second Sportsman’s Park Handicapping Contest of the 2002 simulcast season will be held in February. Qualifying rounds are set for Sunday, February 10, and Sunday, February 17. The Finals will be held on Sunday, February 24.

Handicapping Contests are generally at the top of the "request list" we receive in feedback from our patrons. In the National Jockey Club’s ongoing effort to "give the racing fan what he wants", we sponsored a $5,000 Handicapping Contest during the September-October phase of our 2001 simulcast season. It was enthusiastically received by our patrons, and therefore, we’re happy to bring ‘em back!


Use your On-Track Rewards card on Sunday, February 10 and receive double points on all races from Oaklawn Park in Hot Springs, Arkansas.

The following Sunday, Feb. 17, use your card to wager on races from Aqueduct and receive double points. The feature race at the New York track is the $75,000 Hollie Hughes Stakes for 3-year-olds & up.

One week later, on Sunday, Feb. 24, use your card to bet on the races from Gulfstream Park and receive double points. The $100,000 Davona Dale Stakes (Grade II) for 3-year-old fillies is the main event at the Hallandale Beach, Fla. racetrack.
