Monmouth Park’s third $250 Simulcast Series Challenge Qualifier was held Saturday, March 30 and the winner was Joe Scanio of Brooklyn, NY. 

 Scanio bested a field that included 120 entries. He turned his starting $150 bankroll into $1,060.50 by betting races from Aqueduct, Gulfstream and Tampa Bay.  Contest players could only bet win, place and/or show and needed to bet a minimum of $15 per race.   

By finishing first, Scanio takes home the first-place cash prize of $6,000.  In addition, he takes home a spot in the May 11 Simulcast Series Challenge Invitational as well as a seat in the $2,000 Pick Your Prize Handicapping Challenge on June 1.  The rest of Saturday's Top 10 finishers will be joining Scanio in the Invitational.  The Top 2 finishers in the Invitational will earn a 2020 NHC seat.
