USTA announces online handicapping contest !!

December 21, 2012

In conjunction with HorseTourneys.com and the $100,000 World Harness Handicapping Championship (WHHC), which will be held at the Meadowlands on Saturday, April 13, 2013, the United States Trotting Association (USTA) announced on Friday (Dec. 21) that it has created a free, on-line, qualifying series of 10 tournaments to be conducted during January and February. The winner of each qualifier gains a berth ($1,000 value) into the WHHC final at the Meadowlands.
 
The USTA World Handicapping Championship Online Qualifying Series, which will commence on Friday, Jan. 18, will be conducted on Friday and Saturday nights for five consecutive weekends and will feature 10 different USTA member tracks.
 
Contestants can register free at http://www.horsetourneys.com/ but will be required to enter each week starting on Monday at 9 a.m. (Eastern) to participate in the upcoming weekend's contests. Entries will be limited to 1,000 for each contest on a first-come-first-serve basis.
 
Free past performances will be provided for each contest by TrackMaster.
 
The contest format will be selecting one horse and an alternate, in case of a late scratch, for a $2 Win-Place wager on each race at the featured track that evening with all selections needing to be submitted prior to post time of the first race. A complete listing of rules and regulations is available at http://www.horsetourneys.com/.
 
Following is a schedule with featured racetracks for the USTA Online WHHC Qualifying Series:
 
Date             Track
 
Fri. Jan. 18    Meadowlands
 
Sat. Jan. 19   Balmoral Park
 
Fri. Jan. 25    Maywood Park
 
Sat. Jan. 26   Cal Expo
 
Fri. Feb. 1    The Meadows
 
Sat. Feb. 2    Yonkers Raceway
 
Fri. Feb. 8    Northfield Park
 
Sat. Feb. 9    Pompano Park
 
Fri. Feb. 15   Northville Downs
 
Sat. Feb 16   Buffalo Raceway
 
The 2013 World Harness Handicapping Championship, which will bring together horseplayers from across North America to compete for $100,000 in prize money, marks a new partnership between the Meadowlands and the USTA formed to create the industry's ultimate tournament experience. Standardbred Canada will support the project by facilitating the participation of Canadian racing and wagering outlets.
 
Limited to just 100 spots, the WHHC will be held as a one-day tournament, with a welcome reception and warm-up event the evening prior. Players may earn a seat in the WHHC through a qualifying event or through direct buy-in ($1000) should enough spots remain as of April 1, 2013.
 
HorseTourneys.com is an online handicapping tournament website that is owned and operated by Ellis Park Race Course in Henderson, Ky. HorseTourneys.com offers handicappers the opportunity to qualify to horse racing's major handicapping contest programs, including the Daily Racing Form/NTRA National Handicapping Championship, Horse Player World Series, World Harness Handicapping Championship, The BIG One at Ellis Park and several other major handicapping tournaments at racetracks and casinos around the country.

I saw this & it is interesting. It has to be on the weekends. The problem is i like to attend live racing on the weekends. It is a nice touch for the internet players.

Future contest tracks (in order) are: Maywood, Cal Expo, Meadows, Yonkers, Northfield, Pompano, Northville and Buffalo.  I'm guessing only the Meadowlands will fill up all 1,000 slots.
