October 14, 2013 – Handicapper Sally Hinckley, guest handicapper on Scarborough Downs broadcasts, managed to squeeze out top honors in this past week’s action at Balmoral Park in HANA Harness’ 2013 Grand Circuit Handicapping Challenge sponsored by the Hambletonian Society, Chicago Harness, IHHA, Meadowlands Racing and Entertainment, Tioga Downs, and Vernon Downs by scoring a net profit of $56.20 for the three race competition where the race victors were odds-on favorites hampering  any significant moves.   Hinckley’s $56.20 topped handicappers Gordon Waterstone ($42.10) and Dennis O’Hara ($40.40) to secure top honors. 

Richard Scott still holds the overall lead in the contest as the contest heads into Breeders Crown week with an overall net profit of $83.70, leading by $591.64.  However, with twelve contest races and the usual mix of favorites and long shots anticipated, the possibility of a big move exists.
