NTRA Conducting Free Handicapping Contest

The National Thoroughbred Racing Association is conducting a free, online handicapping contest in association with the Breeders' Cup World Championships at Santa Anita Nov. 6-7 in which the winner will receive four tickets to the 2010 Breeders' Cup at Churchill Downs.

Contestants participating in the 2009 Breeders’ Cup Pick ‘Em Challenge will make a mythical $2 win and place wager on each of this 14 Breeders’ Cup races. The contestant accumulating the highest mythical bankroll from the 14 races will be the winner.

The Pick ‘Em Challenge provides an easy, straightforward way for both casual and core fans to test their handicapping skills at picking winners over two of the best betting days in all of sports," said Keith Chamblin, senior vice president of the NTRA. "We look forward to hosting the winner and his or her guests in Louisville next year."
