Matt Bernier from "Horseplayers" stars in the Esquire Network reality docu-series.

At 23 years old, Matt Bernier was the youngest competitor in last year's National Handicappers Championship. A realtor by day, the Massachusetts' native first came to horse racing through a love of baseball and statistics. As his racing hobby grew into more of an obsession, Bernier upgraded his cable and started watching races from parks across the nation—all from the comfort of his living room. Soon he was watching from the tracks themselves, and, after a few years, he felt ready to pursue a seat at the NHC.

Although Bernier didn't qualify for the Final 50 or take home any prize money in the 2013 NHC, he is more confident than ever that he can make it back to the Championship. And this time, he says, he's going to win it all.
