Three New Incentives to Qualify for Del Mar at HorseTourneys


If you try to qualify for the July 29-30 Del Mar Handicapping Challenge at someplace other than HorseTourneys…well…you’re just not getting the best of it.

We were delighted to announce today three exciting player incentives tied to our Del Mar Handicapping Championship qualifiers and feeders:

1. $10,000 site credit bonus if you qualify here and then finish first at Del Mar.

Yes, you read that correctly. If you qualify here and win there, you receive a $10,000 HorseTourneys site-credit bonus. The bonus will be paid in six monthly installments on the first of every month. The credit must be played—you can’t simply withdraw it. But, of course, anything you win from your $10,000 in free play can be withdrawn, as long as you live in a state where withdrawals are permitted.

2. All Del Mar qualifiers will now guarantee at least one package.

In case item #1 doesn’t already have you convinced, starting with our next Del Mar direct qualifier on March 5, we will award at least one Del Mar Handicapping Challenge package regardless of how many (or how few) enter. You could conceivably make yourself eligible for the $10,000 Del Mar bonus in an “overlay” qualifying contest!

3. All daily feeders into Del Mar qualifiers now will pay participants a 4% rebate.

These rebates on feeder entry fees will be credited overnight and posted to player accounts the following day.


For those of you unfamiliar with the Del Mar Handicapping Challenge, it is a high-end, live-bankroll contest with a $7,000 buy-in. $5,000 represents your live bankroll and $2,000 goes to the prize pool.

Win, place, show, exacta, trifecta and Daily Double wagering is permitted and 100% of the prize pool is returned, plus several NHC seats are added in. Of course, you also keep any money you have in your bankroll at the end of the competition. And as an NHC qualifier, you can earn onsite NHC Tour points as well.

It’s a great deal for the player even apart from our incentives…and, as you might have heard, Del Mar is not an unpleasant place to visit. Though your experience there will be enhanced even further with comfortable, first-rate seating and free drinks and hosted buffets.
