NTRA NHC logoThe Los Alamitos Racing Association will offer a cash prize and as many as three seats to the 2019 National Horseplayers Championship in Las Vegas with a live money handicapping contest Wednesday, July 4.

Cost to enter is $400. Of that amount, $100 will be placed in the contest prize pool with the remaining funds going towards a live-money wagering card.

Contestants must enter prior to 1 p.m. – post time for the first race – July 4. Players can begin entering the contest once track gates open at 9:30 a.m. that morning.

Tournament races will include the entire card at Los Alamitos with permitted wagers including win, place, show, exactas and daily doubles beginning in the first five races of the card. Each entry must bet at least $50 on six races, but there is no wagering limit.

The player with the highest bankroll at the end of the day will be declared the winner and the player with the second highest bankroll will be the runner-up.

The winner will receive 50% of the prize pool, which will be capped at $10,000. The remaining payoffs: 20% (2nd place), 15% (3rd place), 10% (4th place) and 5% (5th place).
