With the Canterbury Park Racebook now re-opened and operating daily, the handicapping contest schedule is taking shape beginning with this Saturday’s $3 million National Horseplayers Championship Last Chance Qualifier contest.
One entry to the Aug. 27-29, 2021 NHC will be awarded.
The format is simple.
Entry fee is $100 (plus $50 for those that do not have a current NHC Tour ID). Maximum entries per player is four.
Entries will be taken beginning at 10am in the Racebook. Play may begin with the first race of the day. The mandatory races will be run after 2 p.m. which is also the contest entry deadline. The contest will conclude at approximately 5:30 p.m. and a winner declared.
That winner is the player accumulating the largest mythical bankroll. Payout caps per race are $42 win and $22 place. Second place will receive $500 in cash.
Eligible races and the mandatory races will be available Friday at the latest. Complete rules are HERE.
A two-session In The Money Contest is also scheduled for Jan. 16 and 23. Saturday’s contest track is Fair Grounds. Entry fee is $10.
Look for the Thursday through Saturday $10 Super Satellite contests to return next week. The annual free-to-enter Road to Kentucky Handicapping Contest will commence Jan. 30. Details of R2K with $20,000 in cash and prizes will be announced soon.
