Which do you find more impressive? The fact that Brian “BC” Chenvert finished first in five featured tourneys last week? Or that he accumulated a total of eight grand prizes (though really nine as you’ll learn later) for the five triumphs plus three other close calls?
I respectfully suggest that the right answer is “None of the above” and instead offer up the possibility that his most impressive feat was racking up the above tallies over three different—and consecutive—days, showing a level of both excellence and consistency that is seldom seen, especially during this highly-competitive time of year.
The past week had a lot—the much anticipated openings of Saratoga and Del Mar, lots of close contest finishes and a few players who won multiple tourneys. What it didn’t have from Wednesday through Sunday was a single cap horse. (The closest we came was a $38.60 winner at Del Mar on Friday.) And that trend was taken to extremes on Sunday when the biggest price that came in was 6-1.
It’s one of the most anticipated weekends of the year—the first Friday, Saturday and Sunday at both Saratoga and Del Mar. On top of that, it’s Haskell Weekend at Monmouth. To help make a big weekend that much bigger, we have 31 featured tourneys scheduled over the three days.
As Belmont’s Spring/Summer meet draws to a close and Delaware Park gets ready for its signature day, HorseTourney stands ready to try and make a fun weekend that much more engaging with a plentiful variety of cash games and important qualifying events
With each passing week, it seems a new qualifier joins our featured-tourney ranks. Last week, it was Lone Star, Club Hawthorne and Monmouth (Haskell). This week, it’s the Xpressbet Summit of Speed Challenge. You will have two opportunities this weekend to earn $1,500 entries to the July 3rd contest that can be played onsite at Gulfstream or online at Xpressbet.
