September 9, 2013 – Thanks to a $.60 Trifecta Wheel in the Champlain Stakes at Mohawk Racetrack, Rusty Nash was able to eke out a profit of $25.69 for the week to take top weekly honors in HANA Harness’ 2013 Grand Circuit Handicapping Challenge sponsored by the Hambletonian Society, Chicago Harness, IHHA, Meadowlands, Tioga Downs, and Vernon Downs.  The week was so frustrating for the handicapping team that Dennis O’Hara, Richard Scott, and Mark McKelvie managed to claim moral victories by keeping their weekly losses in double digits.  The overall standings remain unchanged, leaving Richard Scott in the overall lead with $597.22 separating Scott from the rest of the field.
