The fifth and final Favorites at Woodbridge Handicapping Challenge was held on Sunday, October 19, and resulted in Paul Caltagirone topping the leaderboard with a bankroll of $549.90.


Caltagirone bested a field of 71 entries and will be headed to the December 6 Invitational along with the rest of Sunday’s Top 20.  In the Invitational – featuring 100 players (the top 20 from each of five qualifiers) – the top two finishers will earn a trip to Las Vegas for the 2015 Horse Player World Series.


In Sunday’s contest, all players began with a bankroll of $50 and made no fewer than 10 $5 minimum bets  on Belmont, Keeneland and Woodbine.


In addition to the Top 20 finishers qualifying for the Dec. 6 Invitational, the Top 5 finishers from Sunday’s event received a cash prize.
