The HANA Harness 2013 Grand Circuit Handicapping Challenge sponsored by the Hambletonian Society, Chicago Harness, IHHA, Meadowlands, Tioga Downs, and Vernon Downs kicks off tonight with the $84,000 Courageous Lady at Northfield Park. A team of ten handicappers will be making their selections in Grand Circuit final races during the whole racing season and their selections will be available here.
In the Courageous Lady, #5 Charisma Hanover is the heavy favorite off of her win last week at the Meadows. However, her 5-2 morning line seems to be too generous. Look for most of the handicappers to try to maximize their profits by playing exotics.
Follow along with the contest. Who knows, you may get some ideas from their selections.
The contest continues tomorrow with the Blue Chip Matchmaker and George Morton Levy Finals at Yonkers Raceway. The complete schedule of the contest may be found on the contest site.
Northfield Park has a Pick 4 tonight with a $10,000 Guaranteed Pool along with a low 14% rake. The Courageous Lady is part of the sequence. At 14%, the wager is worth a look.
