March is coming on, and with it comes another handicapping tournament.

The Shootout at Sarasota is in the sights.

Track Info and Big Jackpot Betting are hosting the free tournament.

Sign-up ends March 1 and the contest begins March 2.

The Shootout winner qualifies for the $10,000 World Series of Greyhound Handicapping in December.

It follows ROI scoring as with prior tourneys: Your selections are a mythical $2 wager. If the greyhound wins or places, you get the payoff for points (up to a limit).

Sarasota was a simulcast option at Dubuque Greyhound Park last year. My success there was not the greatest – so I’m keeping my hopes for this one on the low side.

Stakes:

* Derby Lane hosts the second round of the Sprint Classic tonight.

* Mardi Gras offers the Joe Ryan Jr. Memorial Championship Friday.

Carryovers:

* Derby Lane’s tri super is $14,053.

* Jacksonville’s tri super is $16,303
