2012 Fantasy Capping Charity League
By Dana Byerly, Hello Race Fans Co-founder

It’s Fantasy ‘Capping for a cause!

We’ve brought together some of the best-known names in racing and racing media to compete for bragging rights and charity.

The game is simple. Each participant makes one fantasy wager per week.

Be sure to follow along each week at our public leaderboard to see who is on top, who is poised to make a move, and who may be starting to think about longshot wagers.

At the end, the Breeders’ Cup (our sponsor) will make a $2,500 charitable donation in the name of the league winner to the charity of his/her choice.

Are you playing Fantasy ‘Capping? Be sure to check out interview with Michael Beychok, the current reigning National Handicapping Champion and Charity League Fantasy ‘Capper, on his contest strategy.
