Did anyone have Hardest Core in the Arlington Million? With smart plays all day long, the $20,000 Arlington Million Day Game winner didn't need the longshot in the big race to score the big prize on DerbyWars. Jamie Renner (jtrenner) of Cincinnati, Ohio outplayed the 100 other handicappers to win the $9,125 cash prize and secure his seat at the $100,000 Game! He started off strong in Saratoga races and never looked back, scoring $154.80 with 6 well-chosen horses!
In second place was Dustin Haluska (dhaluska) with a $118 final score to take home $3,125 in cash. Third place was Michael Tanzer (oreo), whose final score of $106.70 earned him $1,125. In fourth was Dewey Petty (dewey p) with $105.40 to win a cash prize of $470. All top 4 finishers will get a guaranteed spot in the $100,000 Game over Labor Day weekend!
Interestingly enough, none of the top 4 finishers chose winner Hardest Core as their Arlington Million selection - but 5th-place finisher Anthony Trezza (youare2020) did! Trezza wins $450 and a spot in this Saturday's $20,000 Travers Day Game.
On Sunday, 10 more players punched their tickets to the $100,000 Game in a 10-spot Super Qualifier. They are: Chris Skinner (skinzpicks), Tony Calabrese (funkymonkey), Ed Peters (Fantini33), Justin Golden (justin181174), Richard Guggenheim (guggie), Grier Bibby (gjbibbs), Robert Knowles (Toga), Mike Knox (mjk98155), Bill Roth (masterofpicks19) and Michael Marlaire (jackson10).
