Check back This Week for Live Updates from Saratoga, Monmouth

Two important East Coast brick-and-mortar tournaments take place this week, and HorseTourneys will be onsite providing live updates to its members.

On Wednesday and Thursday, it’s the Battle of Saratoga which, for the first time this year, is being conducted as two separate, single-day tournaments. Cash, two NHC spots and one BCBC seat will be up for grabs each day. It’s an especially player-friendly competition with 100% payback to the players (as is the case in all New York State tourneys). And that was reflected by the tremendous response to our qualifiers. No fewer than 26 HorseTourneys-qualified players will be participating in each of the Spa tourneys.

Saturday the tournament scene moves about five hours south with another live-money event — this one at Monmouth Park. Here, 10 (yes, 10) NHC spots will be awarded. If you’re in the area and haven’t already qualified or signed up, there is still time to do so. Entry is $500, including your live bankroll. Contact Brian Skirka at Monmouth Park or go to for more information.

As the respective tourneys take place we’ll be here providing recaps, updates and other news as it takes place. Check back here or on Twitter (@HorseTourneys) for all the latest info from Saratoga and Monmouth.
