Richard Scott still leads in the HANA handicapping contest

November 25, 2013 – While Meadowlands Racing & Entertainment had a stellar opening, the same cannot be said of the handicappers in this past week’s racing action in HANA Harness’ 2013 Grand Circuit Handicapping Challenge sponsored by the Hambletonian Society, Chicago Harness, Meadowlands Racing and Entertainment, Tioga Downs, and Vernon Downs.  The ‘top’ handicapper was overall leader Richard Scott who had a net loss of only $14.50 for the two races on this past week’s slate.  Rusty Nash and Anne Stepien are the only other two handicappers who cashed any tickets. 

Overall contest leader, Richard Scott remains on top with a net profit of $33.60, $670.45 ahead of second place handicapper Earl Paulson.   After this week, there are only three races remaining in the contest which concludes December 15, 2013.

Here are the contest standings at the conclusion of action on November 23, 2013.
