Todd Cady, from San Diego, connected on a $100 double finishing in the last race to run away from the field with a final score of $6,210 in Saturday's LRF Cares Handicapping Challenge at Del Mar. Cady receives an entry valued at $8,000 to next weekend's Del Mar Challenge expected to feature $225,000 in prizes.
The Challenge benefits Little Red Feather (LRF) Cares, raising over $13,000 to support Thoroughbred aftercare. “What a day and finish,” said Little Red Feather's Gary Fenton.”We couldn't be more grateful to the horseplayers and contest community who supported us. From all of us at LRF Cares, thank you.”
Players started with a $250 bankroll with 111 total entries.
Sean Alvarez from Escondido, Calif., and David Rink from Chicago, Ill., finished second and third. Both receive entries to the $2.8 million National Horseplayer Championship (NHC) including hotel and $500 for travel.
Rounding out the prize winners is Dave Weaver who qualifies to the $750 Pacific Classic Betting Challenge on August 17.
