Ed Wright of Brooklyn, NY had to sweat out a fairly extended photo finish in Gulfstream Park's last race on Saturday, but in the end came out on top of both the photo and Monmouth Park's $200 Simulcast Series Challenge Qualifier.

 

Wright bested a total field of 247 entries be turning his $100 starting bankroll into $1,669.20.  For his efforts, Wright takes home first prize of $12,350 and qualifies - along with the rest of Saturday's Top 10 - to the SSC Invitational on Saturday, April 30.  The Top 2 finishers of the April 30 contest will earn a seat in the 2017 NHC in Las Vegas.

 

Monmouth Park's next SSC qualifier takes place on Saturday, March 19.  For more information, players can email Brian Skirka at bskirka@monmouthpark.com.
