Free Chance to Qualify for the WHHC This Saturday
Thursday, June 2, 2022
This Saturday, June 4, Meadowlands Racetrack is hosting a free handicapping contest with the Grand Prize of a $1,000 seat into the World Harness Handicapping Championship.
The free handicapping contest is open to all patrons on Saturday and there is no fee to enter.
Fans may register at the Clubhouse Players Club Desk until 6:20 p.m. on the night of the contest. The contest format requires players to make a mythical $2 “across the board” wager on one horse in races 1 – 10 at the Meadowlands. The winner is determined by the player that amasses the largest mythical bankroll from their selections.
Other Meadowlands Onsite Qualifiers are:
- Thursday, July 7, 2022 – $100 contest with winner earning WHHC Final seat
The World Harness Handicapping Championship is a one-day tournament [September 10, 2022]. Players that did not earn a seat through a qualifying event can directly buy-in for $1,000. The $1,000 entry fee includes a $300 bankroll, with the remaining $700 going to the prize pool. The WHHC contest format requires players to bet 10 races: their choice of seven Meadowlands races, plus three designated mandatory races. Players keep all pari-mutuel winnings. Prize payouts are to the Top 10.
