NHC Finals to Add Third Day

The National Handicapping Championship will go from a two-day format to a three-day format in 2014, the organizers announced on Tuesday, with the top competitors in the first two days squaring off for the final prizes during the third day.

The change is the first major revision of the format since it was launched 14 years ago. In addition to the establishment of a “final table,” the organizers also said that players will now be allowed to have two entries in the championship, though only one can be used to advance to the third day.

Eric Wing, a spokesperson for the National Thoroughbred Racing Association, which organizes the championship with Daily Racing Form , said that the total number of players who will advance to the third day has not yet been determined, though it is likely that the number will be 10 or 12.
