There are two contests in the Daily Racing Form universe Sunday. The first one, a Round 2 event on BCQualify.com, can’t just be entered. You have to win an entry in the Saturday Round 1 event if you want to play in that one. But also on Sunday there’s another qualifier for the $100,000 Santa Anita Handicapping Challenge on DRFQualify.com. The buy-in is only $80, and two to four players will win full $3,500 entries plus a travel allowance.
