I'm going to use this post to follow the tracks and races involved in the first day of the NHC in Las Vegas.  In addition to the eight mandatory plays, players can play seven optional plays from the same tracks (Aqueduct, Gulfstream, Laurel, Fair Grounds, Santa Anita, and Golden Gate).

So far, the weather looks good at all the tracks; fast and firm.

UPDATE #1: The mandatory plays for Saturday were just released, featuring a turf sprint at Gulfstream, along with two races from the Sunshine Millions - the Filly and Mare Sprint and the Classic.

UPDATE #2: Link to the leaderboard.

UPDATE #3: The first day leader, Brian Troop, finished with a score of $232.60, a single day record at the NHC.  He's about $80 ahead of the the 2nd place player.
