Delaware schedules handicapping contests


Delaware Park has scheduled six handicapping tournaments this year. They will be Feb. 7, March 7, April 4, June 13, Sept. 12, and Nov. 21.

The entry fee for each contest will be $100, and players must put up another $100 as a bankroll.

Contest officials will select five or six designated tournament tracks. Players must make at least 10 win, place, or show wagers on those tracks but can make as many wagers as they want. Wagers must be a minimum of $10 but can be as high as a player wishes. If a player’s bankroll taps out, he is eliminated.

At the end of the day, the player with the highest bankroll wins. Prize money will be paid to the top four finishers. Based on 100 entries, first place will be worth $5,000. All of the entry-fee money will be returned in the prize pool.

Entries can be made on tournament day, starting at 10 a.m. Entry and bankroll fees are cash only.
