Last Chance to Qualify for NHC
As the pages of the calendar flip toward the end of the year, time is
running out for handicappers who have been trying to qualify for the
Daily Racing Form/NTRA National Handicapping Championship.
In previously released schedules of qualifying tournaments, an online
contest at AQHA.com/racing using this weekend’s Champions Pick Four at
Los Alamitos, and on-site contests at Turf Paradise this Saturday and
Tampa Bay Downs this Sunday were the last three opportunities for
hopefuls to make the field and shoot at the record purse of $400,000
when the NHC is held Jan. 21-22 at the Bally’s Las Vegas casino sports
But that’s no longer the case. Handicappers have one more chance. Bally’s race and casino sports book director John Avello announced
Tuesday that he will be hosting a "Win a Place to the Big Show"
qualifier on the Wednesday (Jan. 19) before the NHC. "Everyone deserves a second chance," Avello said.
Actually, for a lot of people, it will be their fifth or sixth
chance, if not more.
"I know a lot of people have gone all over the country to try and get
in this prestigious event, so we wanted to give them one more shot,"
Avello said. "We worked with the NTRA so we could squeeze two more
people in at the last minute." That’s right. There will be two spots up for grabs.
The entry fee is $250. The format will be a live-money event with
players betting a $750 bankroll by making 15 parimutuel wagers of $50
apiece on races from Gulfstream and Santa Anita (or a substitute track
in case of a canceled card).
