Fornatale: 'Credit builder' contest set for BCQualify.com


On Saturday, there will be contests on both BCQualify.com and NHCQualify.com. The more unique of the two is the BCQualify event – it’s a credit builder. Entries cost only $25 with a limit of two per customer. The pool is guaranteed to be at least $2,500 in total with $1,000 going to the winner, but the pool total could grow to as much as $10,000 depending on participation.

Money won can be used in the future on BCQualify.com, NHCQualify.com or DRFBets.com. For complete details about the contest itself and prize structure, check out: http://www.bcqualify.com/howtoplay.aspx [live link].

Meanwhile, over on NHCQualify.com, the usual format is in effect. Entries are $165 and up to five seats to the National Handicapping Championship will be awarded. The races for both contests are as follows, all times eastern:
