Steve Wolfson, Sr., Ormond Beach, FL
“Godfather of Handicapping Contests,”
11-time NHC qualifer
Often referred to as “the godfather of handicapping contests,” Steve Wolfson Sr. was organizing tournaments for Horseplayers in Las Vegas long before the advent of the NHC, most notably the Thoroughbred Challenge at the Mirage, established in 1991. He is an 11-time NHC qualifier. Wolfson breeds and owns racehorses and is the son of Louis Wolfson, owner of 1978 Triple Crown winner Affirmed. Wolfson also is an accomplished sire of handicappers – his son, Steve Jr., was the 2003 NHC winner, the same year Steve Sr. had a career-best fourth place finish.
