The Latest News

Celebration of Winners

Congrats to Dan Camoro, a/k/a FourBongHits, for winning the 2014 Public Handicapper Challenge! Dan wins $1500, a trip to Vegas for the 2015 NHC, and a year's subscription to DRF Formulator PPs. Not to mention a PH T-shirt! This is Dan's 4th year in a row qualifying for the NHC.

We asked Dan a few questions about his handicapping:

Q. What got you into handicapping? My family had a Stakes horse in New York during the 1950's, Battle Over. During holidays, all the family raved about the excitement of owning and
racing "Battle Over". He was trained by the infamous Angelo P. John. Eventually, I found my way to the track and I've been there ever since, 35 years.

Q. What is the most important handicapping angle/strategy that you use? I integrate all conceivable variables when I handicap, but my most enjoyable approach is knowing the connections and just sending it in when they give me the thumbs up.

Q. What was your greatest score? I finished in 5th place behind Jim Benes two years ago and scored 50K at the NHC. Shoulda passed him on that last race using "Hail Mary," but my brain went to la la land....

In second place this year was Rick Ryan. He was not a tour member so did not win a trip to Vegas. Keep in mind that 2nd-place finisher could be YOU next year, so make sure to join the NHC Tour before the Kentucky Oaks next year! In 3rd place, and winning the 2nd trip to Vegas for the NHC, was Traci Richards! Congrats to our qualifiers, and make PH proud at the NHC!

Below is a list of the top 20 on PH for the 2014 Challenge. Understand that while some players finished higher, they did not play the minimum 60 races and are therefore ineligible to receive prizes. The 20 below all win T-shirts, and places 2–5 win a 3-month subscription to DRF Formulator PPs. And NHC Tour members also win points for any top-30 placing. Nice job everyone!
