It will carry an entry fee of $128, and will award a $1,000 entry to both the Wednesday and Thursday contests at Saratoga, plus an additional $750 in travel expense per each 25 entries participating in the qualifier. The first qualifier should sell quickly and is expected to award multiple packages to the event. Starting today, low-cost, $28 feeder tournaments will run throughout the week, leading up to July 10.

Qualifiers to the Battle of Saratoga contests are expected to continue each weekend at HorseTourneys through the weekend of August 6-7.
