It's not a fair contest. A former Daily Racing Form handicapper with decades of experience, knowledge, and unmatched insight into horse racing taking on amateurs who probably think an exacta box is a place to store something. It's like Little Joe Talamo being thrown into the ring with Hulk Hogan.
But I'm willing to lower myself into the mosh pit of the unwashed masses to help demonstrate how easy it is to pick winners in this game. All for the sake of equine charity.
This serves as an invitation for you to join me, and Play Against Ray in year two of the Breeders' Cup Fantasy ‘Capping fantasy league game. You'll be playing for second place, of course, since I'll be looking at you through the rear-view mirror once this party gets started at Saturday's Whitney Handicap from Saratoga.
It's free, easy, and fun. Simply go to the FantasyCapping.com website and register, then choose to join the private league named Play Against Ray. The password is paulickreport. Each week, you'll get email reminders to make your selections (past performances for the races and other information will be made available free of charge) based on a simple $20 win, place, or show bet, or a $10 exacta box (your two horses must finish first and second to win). Points are based on the winning pari-mutuel payoffs.
As an incentive, when the Nov. 2 Breeders' Cup Classic marks the end of the Fantasy ‘Capping season (and I am crowned the king of all Fantasy ‘Capping handicappers!), Paulick Report will make donations to the equine charities of choice for the top three finishers ($200 for first, $100 for second, $50 for third-place). We'll award some other fun prizes along the way from Ray's Treasure Trove of Turf History (souvenirs, historical track programs, handicapping books).
You've got NO chance to beat me, but go ahead and try. I dare you.
