Handicapping tournaments are an important growth area for horse racing, say racetrack officials and horse players. One professional handicapper urges the industry not to stop here but to push forward with exchange wagering.
TwinSpires.com announced that it will again provide online video coverage of the DRF/NTRA National Handicapping Championship from Red Rock Casino in Las Vegas Jan. 29 and Jan. 30th.
Defending champion Kent Meyer of Sioux City, Iowa heads a field of 214 horseplayers who will gather at Bally's Las Vegas on Jan. 21-22 to vie for horse racing's official title of "Handicapper of the Year" and a first-place prize of $200,000 in the $400,000 Daily Racing Form/NTRA National Handicapping Championship.
Kent Meyer, a 38-year-old landlord from Sioux City, Iowa, originally had plane reservations to return home early from the $240,000 Daily Racing Form/NTRA National Handicapping Championship in Las Vegas. Instead, he had 100,000 reasons to stick around.
TVG will broadcast live from the DRF/NTRA National Handicapping Championship Jan. 23-24 from Bally's in Las Vegas.
