The Los Alamitos Racing Association will offer a cash prize and as many as four seats to the 2019 National Handicapping Championship in Las Vegas with a live money handicapping contest Saturday, July 14.
Cost to enter is $400. Of that amount, $100 will be placed in the contest prize pool with the remaining funds going towards a live-money wagering card.
Contestants must enter prior to 1 p.m. – post time for the first race – July 14. Players can begin entering the contest once track gates open at 9:30 a.m. that morning.
Tournament races will include the entire card at Los Alamitos with permitted wagers including win, place, show, exactas and daily doubles beginning in the first five races of the card.
Players may also make one trifecta wager on any race except the final one in the contest.
Each entry must bet a total of at least $300 during the contest to be eligible for prizes and at least $50 on a minimum of three races, but there is no wagering limit.
The player with the highest bankroll at the end of the day will be declared the winner and the player with the second highest bankroll will be the runner-up.
The winner will receive 50% of the prize pool, which will be capped at $10,000. The remaining payoffs: 20% (2nd place), 15% (3rd place), 7.5% (4th place) and 7.5% (most money wagered).
Three NHC berths will be up for grabs if the contest has more than 60 entrants and four will be available if there are more than 100 participants. If less than 60, two NHC spots will be on the line.
