2017 BetAmerica World Harness Handicapping Championship Set for April 29

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.  The BetAmerica WHHC contest format requires players to bet 10 races: their choice of six Meadowlands races, plus four designated mandatory races from Buffalo, Hoosier Park, Mohawk, and the Meadowlands.  Players keep all pari-mutuel winnings.  Prize payouts are to the Top 10, with a guaranteed prize pool of $50,000.

Walk-up registrations will be accepted for the BetAmerica WHHC Final until 7 pm on Saturday, April 29.   For the contest entry form and complete rules visit
