The first annual UIC Tampa Bay Downs Handicapping Championship has three qualifying rounds that will produce six players for the final table. The qualifiers will be held the weekends of 2/17-2/18, 2/24-2/25, and 3/3-3/4. Each qualifier will have a different format, to be determined. The first two finishers in each qualifier advance to the final table, only one spot per player in the finals (win and you're in).
The prize pool will have $100 in seed money. Each finalist receives a twenty dollar wager, to be bet on any track/race before March 10th, in order to generate additional funds for the championship. Top two finishers at the final table will split the purse 75%//25%, in the form of PayPal funds or site credit. A trophy of undetermined origin and value will also be awarded. And probably a hat. Or two. Can you tell that I'm making this up as I go...
Good luck going forward, the final table will be competing using the Tampa Bay Derby day card, featuring five stakes races, including the Tampa Bay Derby (GII), Hillsborough Stakes (GIIT), and the Florida Oaks (GIIIT). See you there!
