Ed Osterhout is a racing lifer. But when it comes to the National Handicapping Tour, he’s a rookie. The 64-year old pharmaceutical salesman from Waterford, N.Y., has been attending races for as long as he can recall, starting with visits to Saratoga with his father as a boy. “I fell in love with Kelso and wanted to be Arcaro,” he said. “Fred Capposella calls still send shivers through me.”

In real life, the $2 double on the sixth and seventh races at Belmont on Sunday paid $516. But for two horseplayers, that combination of $35.60 winners gives them a shot to win their share of $2.5 million at the National Handicapping Championship. Edward Osterhout led the way on NHCQualify.com, one of three players to win into the NHC, along with Jim Clark and Paul Weizer.

Ron Myeress, a 59-year old accountant from Canfield, Ohio, has been going to the races with his dad since he was a kid. But even though Canfield is less than 400 miles from Churchill Downs the two had never been to the Kentucky Derby together. That changed last weekend at the Kentucky Derby Betting Challenge, where Myeress went on to win $142,752, plus a spot in the Breeders’ Cup Betting Challenge.
