”Wager to Win” contest scheduled for Sunday of the upcoming NHC weekend

Treasure Island Las Vegas, host of the $1.6 million (estimated) Daily Racing Form/NTRA National Handicapping Championship (NHC) on January 27-28, will host a special qualifying contest offering two berths to the January 2013 NHC on Sunday, January 29.

The one-day “Wager to Win” contest carries an entry fee of $200 and has a limit of one entry per person with a maximum field size of 300. All contest entry fees will be returned to participants in the form of prize payouts to the top five finishers on a 50%-20%-15%-10%-5% basis. The top two finishers also receive qualifying spots to the 2013 NHC, provided that each is a registered member of the 2012 Daily Racing Form NHC Tour prior to the start of Sunday’s competition.

For official rules or additional information, please contact the Treasure Island casino marketing department at (800) 944-3777.

“The ‘Wager to Win’ competition capitalizes on all the excitement surrounding NHC finals weekend,” said Keith Chamblin, senior vice president of the NTRA. “It affords NHC participants, spectators, and others within proximity to Las Vegas an opportunity to be among the first to qualify for NHC 14 in January 2013, when we’ll be back at Treasure Island.”
