Philip Lam of Fresh Meadows, NY finished first in the June 3 Monmouth Park/Woodbine handicapping contest. He was later disqualified for not betting the mandated number of races.
On Sunday, Lam exacted some revenge as he yet again finished first in the Monmouth/Woodbine $200 NHC Qualifier – this time officially.
Lam bested 184 other players, finishing with a bankroll of $1,707.70, nearly $800 more than runner-up Mark Acerra. Both men qualified for the DRF/NTRA National Handicapping Championship in Las Vegas.
The $200 contest, which had players betting on races from Monmouth Park and Woodbine, attracted 185 players.
Contest players had to bet a minimum of 10 races, five from Monmouth Park and five from Woodbine. The Ricoh Woodbine Mile was a mandatory race.
