Coming off a highly successful NTRA National Horseplayers Championship qualifier this past Thanksgiving weekend at Hawthorne Race Course, one final weekend to qualify at the track has been offered.
On December 29 and 30, the Xpressbet Holiday Extravaganza handicapping tournament will be closing out the thoroughbred season at Hawthorne. The contest is an open track format, keep what you win, live money bankroll. Players will wager from a $400 bankroll each day, with two NHC seats up for grabs on both the 29th and 30th.
While the opportunity to get in for one of the final available seats for the NHC is enough to enter, a $1-million bonus opportunity is also on the line. If a player wins a qualifying seat to the NHC on either the 29th or 30th and goes on to win the National Horseplayers Championship, they will win the $1-million bonus from Hawthorne in addition to their NHC winnings. Contest details are available on the Hawthorne Race Course website www.HawthorneRaceCourse.com or by visiting Guest Services at Hawthorne. There are limited entries for the contest available.
“Our NHC qualifiers have become some of the most popular and well attended contests in the country,” stated Hawthorne assistant general manager John Walsh. “While the open track format and keep what you earn setup of the contest has its appeal, players have also stated that the multiple opportunities that Hawthorne provides late in the contest season for contest players to qualify for the NHC is a huge draw as well.
For those looking to reserve a spot in the Xpressbet Holiday Extravaganza tournament at Hawthorne, they can pre-pay by December 26th by calling 708-780-3733.
