NOTICE Regarding Winner Take All, Head-to-Head Event Listings for Some Tracks

In an effort to reduce the home page listing size and load of HorseTourneys, effective immediately, please note that both WINNER TAKE ALL and HEAD-TO-HEAD events for some tracks will no longer appear on the main, home page listing.

These tournaments may be accessed by using the filters for both WINNER TAKE ALL and HEAD-TO-HEAD, found under the TYPE header in the filter section.

So for example, if you desire a $100 WINNER TAKE ALL event for HAWTHORNE, you would choose the WINNER TAKE ALL from the TYPE filter options. If you’d like to quickly find HAWTHORNE, also select the HAW option from the TRACKS list.

The same applies for HEAD-TO-HEAD. You may choose the HEAD-TO-HEAD option from the TYPE filter and find what track you’re looking for. Or, add the TRACK from the TRACK filter to narrow it more.

The tracks running at this current time that are affected by this change are as follows:
