Churchill Betting Challenge Beginning Date
High rollers who want to try their skills at betting the horses will have a chance to enter the 2010 Betting Challenge for this year's Breeders' Cup races starting July 15. That's the day entries open for the event. Players can reserve their spot by sending in a $500 deposit to be credited toward their buy-in. But the total to enter is $10,000, with the remaining $9,500 due Nov. 1. The buy-in covers the $7,500 betting bankroll for each entry and $2,500 toward the prize pool. Registered players will participate in Churchill's Gold Room with a buffet and clubhouse credentials included for the player and a guest. The top six finishers will qualify for the $1 million National Handicapping Championships in January in Las Vegas.
