Finally, Amy Brantley is going back to the Breeders' Cup Betting Challenge. She finished first overall on Saturday on BCQualify.com to win her $10,000 bankroll for the two-day event, the world's biggest live-bankroll handicapping contest. Brantley has been an active tournament player for eight years and has qualified for the National Handicapping Championship five times. Her first NHC qualification came back in 2009 at Oaklawn. "Once you've been to a tournament, you're hooked," she said, "and I was hooked."

Regular tournament player Amy Brantley has had a lot of close calls in contests in 2015 -- she's finished in the top 10 percent in NHC qualifying contests six times  -- but she finally hit paydirt on Saturday on BCQualify.com. Brantley topped a field of 120 players and won her way into the Breeders' Cup Betting Challenge.

Roger Cettina has been having a huge year. He currently sits sixth on the National Handicapping Championship standings, and he's only that low because one of the contests he won outright online didn't include tour points as only one NHC seat was awarded that day. Don't feel bad for him though: He also got a Breeders' Cup Betting Challenge seat.
