Who do you think will win our “Battle of the Meadowlands Masterminds?”

We are pitting Jessica Otten, Gabe Prewitt, Ken Warkentin, Dave Little, and Mike Carter against each other this summer in the ultimate handicapping contest. Our fans get a chance to win the nightly cash prize as well as a chance to win the $10,000 Grand Prize on Saturday, August 3!

Battle of the Meadowlands Masterminds Rules:
• Each race night the 4 handicappers are given $500 in “mythical battle money”.
• Their mythical wagers must be on races 4-9 each night – $500 will be wagered each night by every handicapper
• The battle money wins and losses are tracked with results posted as soon as possible following Race 10
• Every night on-track there will be five drawing barrels. Each one with a corresponding Battle of the Meadowlands Masterminds name assigned. Fans can complete the entry form and deposit the slip in the barrel of their chosen handicapper prior to Race 4 each night.
• Entry forms are available in the live racing program and at the Players Club Desk.
• After Race 10 each live race night an entry from the winning handicapper barrel will be selected to win $200 betting voucher.
• On Hambletonian Day, Saturday, August 3, the winning Battle handicapper is announced.
• At the end of the Battle, the winning handicapper will receive $1,000 for their selected charity; second will receive $500 and third through fifth place $250
