Little Red Feather, the largest racehorse ownership syndicate based in California with more than 75 horses and more than 450 active partners, will offer its clients an exclusive opportunity to play for a $1 million bonus at February’s $3 million-estimated NTRA National Horseplayers Championship (NHC). In addition, the Little Red Feather partner with the best finish at #NHC19 will win a $10,000 credit to use toward ownership of a future Little Red Feather offering.
The Little Red Feather (LRF) partner with the highest finish on the 2018 NHC Tour will become eligible for the $1 Million Little Red Feather Bonus, to be paid out if they go on to win the world’s richest and most prestigious handicapping contest, the NHC, set for Feb. 8-10, 2019, at Treasure Island Las Vegas.
The $10,000 “LRF Credit” to be used for any new LRF share purchase will be awarded to the LRF partner who qualifies for and plays in the 2019 NHC and finishes highest among eligible LRF partners.
Last month’s NHC boasted a record field of 568 individual players, including LRF managing partner Gary Fenton.
“It was a bucket list item to make the NHC last year,” Fenton said. “It was my first year on the NHC Tour and I never realized how much fun it was competing against the very best horse players. At Little Red Feather, we are always looking for new and attractive ideas to bring to our partners to enhance the ownership experience. We think our partners will enjoy competing on the Tour. In fact, we are betting $1 million on it.”
Updates on NHC Tour standings of Little Red Feather players will be shared weekly in communications to members. Prospective partners can become eligible for the NHC bonuses by joining a partnership before June 30, 2018.
This year’s NHC grand prize was worth $800,000 for winner Chris Littlemore, who also earned an Eclipse Award as Horseplayer of the Year, a berth into next year’s NHC finals, an entry to the Pegasus World Cup Betting Championship, an entry to the Breeders’ Cup Betting Challenge, and annual subscriptions to STATS Race Lens™ and Racetrack Television Network.

About the NHC
In its 20th year, the National Horseplayers Championship is the most important tournament of the year for horseplayers and is the culmination of a year-long series of NTRA-sanctioned local tournaments conducted by racetracks, casino race books, off-track betting facilities and horse racing and handicapping websites, each of which sends its top qualifiers to the national finals. There are no buy-ins to the NHC. Each year, the NHC winner joins other human and equine champions as an honoree at the Eclipse Awards. For more information on the NHC, visit NTRA.com/nhc.
