On that date, the top horseplayers in North America will compete for a guaranteed $75,000 prize pool in the WHHC Final at the Meadowlands Racetrack in East Rutherford, N.J.
“DerbyWars.com is a terrific partner for the World Harness Handicapping Championship,” said Rachel Ryan, Marketing Manager at Meadowlands Racing & Entertainment. “With their support we are able to guarantee the Championship prize pool at $75,000. With 100% of entry fees returned as prizes, this offers tremendous value to our players. Should 108 or more players enter the Championship, the prize pool will exceed $75,000.”
The World Harness Handicapping Championship presented by DerbyWars.com is a one-day tournament, with a welcome reception the evening prior. Players who 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. Players keep all pari-mutuel winnings. Prize payouts are to the Top 10.
The 2018 World Harness Handicapping Championship Qualifier schedule is set and each Qualifier brochure is available at PlayMeadowlands.com.
