World Harness Handicapping Championship Prize Increased To $150,000 For 2019

Meadowlands Racing & Entertainment and DerbyWars.com are proud to announce the 2019 World Harness Handicapping Championship presented by DerbyWars.com — offering a record $150,000 prize pool — is set for Saturday, April 6, 2019.

On that date, the top horseplayers in North America will compete for an estimated $150,000 prize pool, the largest in the history of the WHHC. The Grand Prize in the WHHC Final at the Meadowlands Racetrack in East Rutherford, NJ is guaranteed at $50,000. The total prize pool will be based on the number of entries, with 100% of entries going to player prizes and bankrolls.

“DerbyWars.com continues to be a terrific partner for the World Harness Handicapping Championship,” said Rachel Ryan, Marketing Manager at Meadowlands Racing & Entertainment. “With their support we have been able to grow WHHC participation and prize pool. With 100% of entry fees returned as prizes, the WHHC offers tremendous value to our players.”

The World Harness Handicapping Championship presented by DerbyWars.com is a one-day tournament, with a welcome reception the evening prior. Players that did not earn a seat through a qualifying event can directly buy-in for $1,300. The $1,300 entry fee includes a $300 bankroll, with the remaining $1,000 going to the prize pool. The $150,000 prize pool is based on an estimated 150 entries. The WHHC contest format requires players to bet 10 races: their choice of seven Meadowlands races, plus three designated mandatory races. Players keep all pari-mutuel winnings. Prize payouts are to the Top 10.
