Next Saturday, April 29, 2017 the top horseplayers in North America will compete for $50,000 in prize money in the 2017 BetAmerica World Harness Handicapping Championship, at the Meadowlands Racetrack in East Rutherford, NJ.
The BetAmerica World Harness Handicapping Championship is a one-day tournament, with a welcome reception the evening prior. 49 players qualified via BetAmerica online tournaments and on-site track tournaments held at the Meadowlands, Tioga & Vernon Downs, Northville Downs, Monticello, Standardbred Canada, Buffalo, Plainridge, Scioto Downs and Hoosier Park.
Players that did not earn a seat through a qualifying event can directly buy-in for $800.
