DRFBets contest offers NHC seats


Contest action returns to DRFBets on Saturday with a new format. The top two finishers will both receive their seats to the National Handicapping Championship, to be held in January at Treasure Island in Las Vegas. A purse in excess of $2.5 million is expected at the NHC.

“We’re very excited to host another NHC tournament on DRF Bets,” said contest director Jordan Goldberg. “We love the idea of one of our customers winning big money at the world’s most prestigious handicapping tournament.”

The contest rules are simple. There is an $80 registration fee. On Saturday, Oct. 10, contestants must make eight online “live” wagers on any races at Belmont Park, Keeneland, or Santa Anita. Customers keep whatever amount is left on their bankrolls at the end of the tournament.

To be eligible to play, contestants must have a membership at DRFBets and be registered for the National Handicapping Championship Tour. Tour membership is $50 but enables players to compete for NHC seats in any and all contests where they are on offer. Tour members are also entitled to discounts on Daily Racing Form past-performance packages.
