‘Beat Byk Challenge’ Returns Offering Berth In 2022 NHC

Steve Byk, host of the Thoroughbred radio news magazine “At the Races” on Sirius XM, is once again partnering with the National Thoroughbred Racing Association (NTRA) to send one NHC Tour member to Las Vegas to compete in the National Horseplayers Championship (NHC) in January 2022.

The “Beat Byk NHC Challenge” will be conducted over three weeks from Oct. 1-Oct. 13. Byk will pick a horse in each of the remaining 26 ‘Win and You’re In’ races held during the time span and leading to the Breeders’ Cup World Championships on Nov. 5-6. Listeners will be encouraged to log in to https://www.ntra.com/beatbyk/ where they will either use Byk’s selection to win the featured race or try to ‘beat Byk’ by selecting another horse.

All who correctly select the winning horse in each round will advance to a Nov. 13 NHC online qualifier limited to winning participants from the promotion. Participants may qualify only once during the promotional period. The winner of the “Beat Byk” Online Qualifier in November will represent “At the Races” at the 2022 NHC Jan. 28-30 at Bally’s Las Vegas.

NHC Tour membership is required to compete in the November NHC online qualifier. Any participant who “Beats Byk” in any of the weekly contests and is not already a Tour member will be able to join the NHC Tour for a special offer of only $10.00 for the remainder of the 2021 NHC Tour. Those who “Bet with Byk” and win a spot in the NHC online qualifier by picking the winner also will be required to join the Tour ($50 annual membership) to be eligible to win the NHC berth. Tour Membership is good for the remainder of the 2021 calendar year and any 2022 qualifiers for the 2022 NHC. Complete rules for the Beat Byk Challenge can be found at https://www.ntra.com/beatbyk/.

“At the Races with Steve Byk” is Thoroughbred racing’s only national daily news and talk show. The show also streams live on www.stevebyk.com.
