2013 SSC 2 300x225

The Simulcast Series Challenge (SSC) continues Saturday, April 27, 2019 with this 0% takeout bankroll builder.  The 2019 SSC will consist of four qualifiers and culminate with the SSC Invitational on Saturday, May 11.


Each of the four qualifiers will be 0% takeout bankroll builders.  $250 buy-in ($150 bankroll, $100 entry fee).  The winner receives a berth in the $2,000 Pick Your Prize Handicapping Challenge on Saturday, June 1.  The Top 10 finishers advance to the SSC Invitational on May 11.  Cash prizes will be paid to the Top 10.  100% of entry fees will be paid out in cash prizes.


IN ADDITION, there will be five (5) WILD CARD qualifiers to the Invitational. The five players who accumulate the highest total combined bankroll over the four qualifiers will receive a WILD CARD berth into the May 11 Invitational.  (An automatic qualifier cannot additionally receive a wild card berth.  For players with two entries in the same qualifier, only the higher bankroll will count toward wild card standings.)


The Top 2 Invitational finishers will receive a 2020 NHC seat.


$250 contest ($150 bankroll, $100 entry fee).  Contest Tracks: Gulfstream, Aqueduct and Tampa Bay.  Win, place and/or show wagering only.
