Live-money handicapping contest to be held Cigar Mile Day at The Big A


OZONE PARK, N.Y. - In addition to being the last day to watch Grade 1 racing in New York, Cigar Mile Day (November 29) will also be the last chance for handicappers to qualify for the National Handicapping Championship at a NYRA track, via a $300 buy-in, live-money tournament.


The centerpiece of the fall meet at Aqueduct Racetrack - the Grade 1, $500,000 Cigar Mile Handicap - will be joined by the Grade 2, $400,000 Remsen, Grade 2, $400,000 Demoiselle, and Grade 3, $400,000 Comely, offering bettors premier racing to wager on.


Of the $300 entry fee, $200 will serve as a bankroll, which competitors may allocate as they wish among Win, Place, Show, Exacta and Trifecta wagering, while the remaining $100 goes to the prize pool - 100 percent of which is returned to the players, with the winner earning a berth to the NHC on January 23-25 at Treasure Island in Las Vegas.


Contestants must wager a minimum of $40 on five separate races at Aqueduct, but may also wager as much of their bankroll as they wish at any time during the contest. Wagers can be placed at any self-service terminal throughout the track.


Non-refundable registration will take place beginning Wednesday, November 26 on-track at Aqueduct and continue through the 5th race on Saturday, November 29.
