Calling Handicappers

HANA Harness is sponsoring another handicapping contest this year. Instead of The Pen vs. The Chip Handicapping Challenge format, we are using a different format this year. We are using the Grand Circuit races as contest races (excluding eliminations, except same-day eliminations). Both Pen and Chip handicappers are invited to participate.

Basically, each handicapper will be given a fictional $30 to wager on each stakes race (a multi division stakes race is considered one race). The handicapper must wager the $30 on the stakes race or in the event of a race broken into divisions, must wager the $30 on one division or split it between multiple divisions.

There is no entry fee and any prize money will be awarded to the standardbred rescue of the winning handicapper's choice (from a list of pre-approved rescues).  At the present time, we have $2,000 committed towards donations to standardbred rescues.

For the complete schedule of the contest and the rules, please see the contest blog and check the appropriate tabs. Contestants are not provided with free race programs.

There is a limit to the number of handicappers which may participate so if interested, please contact as soon as possible and provide a brief background regarding your experience with handicapping.
