There’s a new contender on the NHC Tour: Steve Wells, last weekend’s winner of the Santa Anita Betting Challenge. Wells netted more than $50,000 for the weekend, including a $5,000 bonus for being the overall leader on Day 1. “I’ve been thinking about the tour since Saturday night,” he said.

I spend a lot of time talking with horseplayers about the benefits of playing in handicapping contests. Typically, I cite the camaraderie, the action, and the value that tournaments offer as the prime reasons to play in them. My recent trips to Gulfstream Park for the Raise Your Game contest and to the Great Race Place for the Santa Anita Betting Challenge have shown me another reason why you should have handicapping contests on your radar if you like to play the horses – they offer fans a VIP player experience without having to regularly put five figures through the windows.
