East Rutherford, NJ — Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and people’s uncertainty and uneasiness with traveling, the 2021 World Harness Handicapping Championship presented by DerbyWars.com has been canceled.
Players that qualified for a seat through various outlets including the Meadowlands Survival Challenge, will be refunded the $1,300 tournament seat as a prize payout.
“After speaking with our players this was the best decision,” said Rachel Ryan, Director of Marketing and On-site Events for the Meadowlands Racetrack. “Many of our players are still uncomfortable traveling due to the pandemic. Hopefully we can restart the WHHC in 2022 and have a number of onsite tournaments that allow players to win their entry into the final.”
WHHC updates will be posted at PlayMeadowlands.com.
