Coral Springs, FL — The United States Harness Writers Association will host the next free harness racing handicapping contest on Scott Alberg’s Facebook page on Saturday (July 4) at The Meadowlands.
One special race will be selected from the Meadowlands Saturday program and contestants can enter free of charge. All you have to do is select the correct exacta (first two official finishers in the race, either by their starting post position number or by the name of the horse).
The Harness Racing Museum and Hall of Fame have arranged for the three swag bag prizes that will be given away in this week’s contest. If more than three correct answers are submitted, then a drawing will take place with all the correct winners and the first three names drawn will win a swag bag prize package.
This week’s prizes come from the Harness Racing Museum and includes a copy of the USTA’s Care & Training of the Trotter and Pacer book, a copy of Bill Heller’s novel on Billy Haughton, plus other surprise items.
Scott Alberg, the 2006 National Harness Handicapping champion, who also has numerous other handicapping titles, has been a Standardbred owner in the past, and has agreed to partner with USHWA as the contest’s new title sponsor.
“Since USHWA came on board with this contest, we are setting records with every event,” said Alberg. “Our last contest set the bar now at 287 people entering. We have never had that many people enter before. This contest is all about having fun and we hope even more people will enter this week.”
To enter the contest, fans must go to Scott Alberg’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/scott.alberg.3, where the contest will be prominently displayed. Alberg, as he has done in the past, will run the contests. All contest winners will have their name posted after the event and the ranking they finished in from the prize drawings.
As soon as the draw takes place at The Meadowlands this week, the program proof page for the race selected will be posted for race fans to handicap from.
