November 10, 2013 – Mark McKelvie, winner of the 2012 handicapping contest has been quiet for a while 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 showed triple digit profits at Hoosier Park and Vernon Downs on Friday evening, but when he wakes up, he wakes up as McKelvie scored an eye opening net profit of $1,000.40 on the American National card at Balmoral Park Saturday evening (November 9).  (Editor’s Note: The contest uses USTA-posted prices.  If using out of state prices, McKelvie would have had a net profit of $1,011.30).  As a result of his performance, McKelvie moves into 7th place. 

Overall contest leader, Richard Scott remains on top despite his losing performance this week, showing an overall net profit of $106.75, leading the pack by $574.10.  As we see from McKelvie’s performance this week, no position is solidified with seven contest dates remaining.

Here are the contest standings at the conclusion of action on November 9, 2013.
