My picks are made, my league is created—now it’s your turn to join.
We’re kicking off the second annual Derby picks for charity contest at Brooklyn Backstretch. Join the Brooklyn Backstretch league in the Road to the Roses, and the winner will have a minimum $50 donation made in her name to the racing charity of her choice. I pledge the first $50; last year, a number of participants voluntarily donated (in amounts ranging from $10 to $25), and winner Triple Crown Katie donated $150 to the Disabled Jockeys Fund.
You don’t need to contribute to win…just join! Standings will be posted weekly at Brooklyn Backstretch, and the races begin this Saturday. The only rule is that you don’t get to make fun of me (publically, anyway) for my picks.
Get your stables set up and start collecting points—you can join our league with this information:
League Name: Brooklyn Backstretch
League Identifier: 56457284
Activation Code: 2614161665
And if you’re interested in contributing to the donation, please e-mail me at the e-mail address to the left.
