New York Handicapping Series: Contest #3 Aqueduct



2014 New York Handicapping Series: Contest #3 will be eligible for The NTRA/Daily Racing Form National Handicapping Championship.

Approximately $1,500,000 in prize money will be available with the individual winner to receive approximately $750,000, and NTRA Handicapper of the Year honors at the 2015 Eclipse Awards.

The New York Racing Association, Inc. will provide reimbursement for airfare for each of the top three [3] finishers of our qualifying tournament*. The NTRA will provide for a three-night stay at the official tournament hotel for the 2015 championship event.



Reminder: All contestants at qualifying tournaments must have paid a one-time annual NTRA membership fee of $50 in order to be eligible to compete at the National Championship. Contestants may opt not to purchase the $50 annual NTRA membership, but they would then be competing in qualifying tournaments for purse money only at the qualifiers, and not for the available berths in the NHC Finals.  NHC berths at a given qualifier will only be available to those who are paid NTRA members prior to the start of competition at a qualifying tournament. Please contact the NTRA directly if you have any questions or concerns regarding these stipulations at mravencraft@ntra.com or 859-422-2657.

In the event of a tie, the following tie-breaking rules will be used to decide the three-member Aqueduct travel team:

  1. Highest number of winning wagers over the two-day tournament. 
  2. If a tie still exists, highest-priced winner over the two-day tournament (based on $2 win payoff).
  3. If a tie still exists, highest money total after day one of the two-day tournament.

*NYRA will reimburse airfare for our Las Vegas qualifiers, at a maximum of $450 round trip.  If a contestant has already qualified for the Las Vegas team via another NHC tournament, they must arrange travel and reimbursement through that qualifying entity.
