Signups are now being accepted at for the “West Point Thoroughbreds Handicapping Challenge”—a free, online handicapping tournament sponsored by West Point Thoroughbreds, Inc.—on Saturday, November 27. The first-place finisher will receive a guaranteed berth in the $1.1 million (estimated) Daily Racing Form/NTRA National Handicapping Championship (NHC) on January 28-29, 2011 in Las Vegas. The winner will also receive roundtrip air travel and hotel accommodations at the Red Rock Casino, Resort & Spa, site of the NHC.

Second prize is a $3,000 credit, awarded to a qualified prospective investor, towards the purchase of an interest in a West Point Thoroughbreds racehorse.

The third-place finisher in the November 27 contest will receive a West Point Thoroughbreds apparel package with an approximate retail value of $250.

The West Point Thoroughbreds Handicapping Challenge requires contestants to place hypothetical $2 win and place wagers on 10 designated contest races on Saturday, November 27.  The 10 contest races will be chosen by tournament officials on Thursday, November 25, and are scheduled to be selected from the November 27 cards at Aqueduct, Churchill Downs and Hollywood Park, where numerous important stakes events are scheduled (contest tracks subject to change). Free DRF past performances for the tournament races will be available at the contest site. All selections must be made no later than one minute prior to the scheduled post time of each mandatory race. The player amassing the highest number of points based on the players' earnings (i.e. the highest final bankroll) from all $2 win and place wagers at the end of the competition will be declared the "Grand Prize Winner" and receive a berth in the NHC in January in Las Vegas.

“West Point Thoroughbreds is proud to present our first-ever online handicapping tournament,” said Terry Finley, Founder and President of West Point Thoroughbreds, Inc.  “Tournament play has exploded in popularity over the last 10 years as the success of the NHC attests, and I’ve found that many West Point clients first became interested in Thoroughbred racing via the handicapping experience.  So this is a great fit for us, and I’m glad that we can offer our Handicapping Challenge on a day that will feature high quality racing from coast to coast.”
