ARLINGTON QUALIFERS STRIKE IT RICH AT COAST CASINO’S HORSEPLAYER’S WORLD SERIES
ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. (March 3, 2009) – Two area residents who earned qualifying berths from Arlington Park for the 2009 Horseplayer’s World Series – Dave Sellner of Palatine and Dennis Lindbergh of Midlothian – posted top 20 finishes in the recently concluded tournament held at Coast Casino in Las Vegas. Sellner finished 10th, earning a prize of $6,800 for his placing, while Lindbergh’s 20th-place finish was worth $3,400.
The Trackside OTB Spring Live Money Contest Series begins Saturday, March 7 with the first of eight scheduled events in the Spring Handicapping Series at Trackside Arlington Park. The winner of each weekly contest will earn a berth into the expected 2010 Coast Casino’s Horseplayer World Series and an additional season-long “wild-card” berth will be awarded to the person with the best cumulative score over the eight contests who did not win an individual event in the series.
To help players on each designated contest day, Chicago Sun-Times handicapper and HorsePlayer magazine Midwest correspondent M. Scott McMannis will conduct a handicapping seminar on that day’s Hawthorne card beginning at Noon and will remain on hand to answer questions throughout the afternoon. Fans wishing to keep up on the latest contest news can check McMannis’s blog on Arlington Park’s Web site at http://www.arlingtonpark.com.
