Churchill Downs Inc. will again offer the "Million Dollar Bonus Tour" program this year, providing a $1 million bonus to any handicapper who wins a CDI qualifying tournament and then goes on to capture the top prize at the Daily Racing Form/NTRA National Handicapping Championship (NHC), scheduled for Jan. 26-27, 2007, at Bally's Las Vegas.
Sponsored by Daily Racing Form, the "Million Dollar Bonus Tour" will run throughout 2006 as CDI holds NHC qualifying tournaments at each of its six racetracks. In order to be eligible for the $1 million bonus, winners of the CDI qualifying rounds must be registered members of CDI's customer rewards program, the Twin Spires Club, prior to their participation in CDI tournaments. Membership in the Twin Spires Club is free.
CDI qualifying tournaments for the 2007 NHC will be held at Hoosier Park on July 1; Calder Race Course on July 16; Churchill Downs on Aug. 19; Arlington Park on Sept. 10; Ellis Park on Oct. 21; and at Fair Grounds Race Course on a date still to be determined.
