Q-Racing Aces In Force at Challenge Championships

The Q-Racing Aces, AQHA's unique fan education program, will be in full force at the Bank of America Challenge Championships on November 19 at Fair Grounds Race Course in New Orleans to help fans appreciate the racing action and even make a wager or two.

The Q-Racing Aces consists of noted handicappers and journalists Denis Blake, Martha Claussen, Tom Dawson, Jennifer Hancock, John Hernandez and Jen Perkins. Since June, the Aces have visited tracks in New Mexico, Arizona, Texas, Louisiana, Iowa, Oklahoma and Ontario, Canada, to share knowledge about watching and wagering on "America's Fastest Athletes" to teach everyone from novice racetrack visitors to experienced Thoroughbred players who want to learn how to bridge the gap between Thoroughbred and American Quarter Horse handicapping.

For the Challenge Championships, the Q-Racing Aces will conduct a pre-race handicapping seminar; offer a complimentary tip sheet on all 13 races; have two Q-Racing information tables (one outside in the Fair Grounds Beer Garden and the other in the Clubhouse); participate in race previews from the paddock; and offer handicapping insights for the Horse Racing TV telecast.
