This Saturday, April 28, 2018 the top horseplayers in North America will compete for $75,000 in prize money in the 2018 World Harness Handicapping Championship presented by DerbyWars.com, at Meadowlands Racing & Entertainment. The WHHC is a one-day tournament, with a welcome reception the evening prior.
This Thursday, DerbyWars.com is offering a final qualifier with two $1,000 seats in the Final up for grabs. Players can register at https://www.derbywars.com/tournaments/list/whhc
Through Tuesday, 73 players have qualified via DerbyWars.com online tournaments, TVG/Betfair, and on-site track tournaments held at the Meadowlands, Tioga & Vernon Downs, Buffalo Raceway and Standardbred Canada.
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 (one each) from Buffalo, Vernon Downs and the Meadowlands. Players keep all pari-mutuel winnings. Prize payouts are to the Top 10, with a guaranteed prize pool of $75,000. If more than 108 players enter the Championship, the prize pool will exceed the guarantee.
Walk-up registrations will be accepted for the WHHC Final presented by DerbyWars.com until 7 pm on Saturday, April 28. For the contest entry form and complete rules visit http://playmeadowlands.com/contest_detail.aspx?id=8240
