Streiff wins more than $100,000 in the July 25 & 26 Del Mar Handicapping Challenge

Mark Streiff of Mission Viejo, CA coasted to the win in the 12th annual Del Mar Handicapping Challenge. Streiff turned his $4,500 live money bankroll into $43,484, largely based on his big score of more than $27,000 in Saturday’s 5th race. First Place was worth $60,000, which along with his $43,484 bankroll, gives him total cash winnings of $103,484. In addition, Streiff receives a $10,000 entry in the Breeders’ Cup Betting Challenge (BCBC) plus entry in the $2.5 million Daily Racing Form/NTRA National Handicapping Championship (NHC).

The top ten finishers all receive entries in the NHC.
