The cost to enter the tournament is $200 ($100 entry plus a $100 real-money bankroll). The format requires players to bet a minimum of $10 ($100 maximum) on 10 Woodbine races. Complete rules and entry form are available at MeadowlandsRacetrack.com.

The 2013 World Harness Handicapping Championship (WHHC) will bring together horseplayers from across North America to compete for $100,000 in prize money on Saturday, April 13, 2013 at the Meadowlands. Players may earn a seat in the WHHC through a qualifying event at a partner wagering outlet or through direct buy-in ($1000) should enough spots remain as of April 1, 2013.

TwinSpires.com will also host a 2-seat WHHC Qualifier on Breeders Crown Night, while Northlands Park in Canada has set a date for a qualifier on January 19, 2013. The Meadows and Red Shores also plan to announce WHHC qualifiers.
