East Rutherford, NJ — This Saturday (April 13), the top horseplayers in North America will compete for $125,000 in prize money (based on 125 entries) in the 2019 World Harness Handicapping Championship presented by DerbyWars.com.
The WHHC is a one-day tournament with a welcome reception the evening prior.
The $125,000 prize pool is based on an estimated 125 entries with a $50,000 first place prize. Currently, the Championship’s Grand Prize is guaranteed at $40,000 regardless of the number of entries.
