East Rutherford, NJ--Jeff Gordon showcased his prowess for picking winners in the first World Harness Handicapping Championship Qualifier of the year this past Saturday (Jan. 19). 

The North Caldwell, N.J., resident nailed four winners on the card and finished the tournament with a $461.70 bankroll, securing him the $4,440 top cash prize and an entry into the inaugural World Harness Handicapping Championship, to be held April 13, 2013, at the Meadowlands Racetrack.  

The qualifier format required players to bet 10 Meadowlands races of their choice, working from a $100 bankroll. Wagers had to meet a $10 minimum per race, with no maximum. Contestants could only bet one horse per race and wagers could either be win, place or a combination of the two.
