REGISTRATION OPEN FOR SATURDAY’S FREE “TVG ONLINE CHALLENGE”; TOP THREE FINISHERS TO RECEIVE NHC BERTHS
Contestants Need Not Be TVG Account Holders
Signups are being accepted for the “TVG Online Challenge,” a free, online handicapping tournament that will take place this Saturday, May 14. The top three finishers will receive a guaranteed berth in the $2 million (estimated) Daily Racing Form/NTRA National Handicapping Championship (NHC) presented by Sovereign Stable next January in Las Vegas. The three winners will also receive roundtrip air travel and hotel accommodations at Treasure Island Las Vegas, site of the NHC. Prospective competitors do not need to be TVG account holders in order to register.
The TVG Online Challenge requires contestants to place hypothetical $2 win and place wagers on 10 designated contest races on Saturday. The 10 contest races will be chosen by tournament officials on Thursday, May 12, and are scheduled to be selected from the May 14 cards at Belmont Park, Monmouth Park and Hollywood Park (contest tracks subject to change). Free DRF past performances for the Challenge races will be available at the contest site. The three players 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 Challenge will be declared the "Grand Prize Winners" and receive berths in the NHC in January in Las Vegas.
