June 29, 2014 - Sally Hinckley was the top handicapper this week in HANA Harness' Grand Circuit Handicapping Shoot-Out Contest with a net profit of $296.80.

While Hinckley was top dog for the week, Brandon Valvo retook  the overall lead in the competition thanks to his overall net profit of $1,499.50 and Mark McKelvie's stumble which allowed Valvo to reverse a $14.50 deficit into a lead of $581.50.

In addition to Hinckley and Valvo, Garnet Barnsdale, Ray Garnett and two other handicappers had a positive return for the week meaning seven handicappers improved their overall earnings in the contest this week.

Sally Hinckley profited with trifecta hits in both the Max C. Hempt and Earl Beal Jr. Memorials. In the Hempt, a $10 three-horse trifecta box ($60 total) returned $194 while in the Beal, $144 in various trifecta plays returned $426.80. Barnsdale laid it all on the line playing Mcwicked to win for $400 to receive a $600 payoff.

Ray Cotolo avoided a shut out with a $50 win ticket on Doo Wop Hanover in the Hempt Consolation, paying $175. Ray Garnett's $10 exacta box ($60) returned a dividend of $157 in the James M. Lynch Memorial while putting four horses under Sweet Lou in a $40 exacta ($160) in the Ben Franklin FFA returned $428.
