It’s never too early to start thinking about the 2015 Breeders’ Cup Betting Challenge. With that in mind, Daily Racing Form and BCQualify.com have announced four new contests, all of which will take place before the end of the year. The contests will take place Nov. 22, Nov. 29, Dec. 7, and Dec. 20.

Three of the contests will cost $190 each and allow players to win into the BCBC directly. The fourth will offer a low $25 buy-in, and the players who finish at the top of the leaderboard will win credit that can be used on BCQualify.com or NHCQualify.com.

“Coming off the most successful BC Betting Challenge ever, we’re excited about the start of the qualifying season for the 2015 Championships at Keeneland,” said Ken Kirchner, administrator of BCQualify.com. “The past two BCBC champions, Bob Traynor and Peter Behr, have combined to win over $650,000 in the BCBC after qualifying for only $110 each on our site.”

Six of the top 20 finishers at the 2014 BCBC qualified online, and overall, 74 players earned their full $10,000 buy-ins at BCQualify.com. The two-stage qualifying format – with a $110 entry fee – will return in 2015.

Here are the four events for the remainder of this year:

Nov. 22 – One-day qualifier; $190 per entry; up to four full $10,000 BCBC spots (two guaranteed); 280 entries max
