Monmouth Park’s first $250 Simulcast Series Challenge Qualifier was held Saturday, February 29 and the winner was Bill Rendino of Bronx, NY.

In addition, he takes home a spot in the May 9 Simulcast Series Challenge Invitational as well as a seat in the $2,000 Pick Your Prize Handicapping Challenge on May 30.
