FREE Handicapping Contest & Fundraiser for Fray Martinez — Saturday, January 9, 2016

Handicapping Contest & Fundraiser

Saturday, January 9, 2016


If there’s one thing that users of this site have proven time and time again over the past three years it’s that they step up when a worthwhile cause presents itself. This weekend, we’re asking all of you to step up yet again, this time for a friend of ours who is dealing with a major health issue.

Jockey Fray Martinez, who rode for part of the past two years in Maryland, has been diagnosed with Leukemia and is undergoing treatment. The rider from Puerto Rico, just 21 years old, is extremely soft-spoken and kind. Our hearts ache for Fray and we’d love to do anything we can to help. Therefore, we’ve put together a contest this week where you can win one of two really neat prizes. All we ask is that you help Fray, if you can.


Signed goggles from Fray’s good friend and Eclipse Award winning jockey Victor Carrasco, and leading Laurel Park rider Jevian Toledo. Winner will have their choice between the two and the runner up will receive the other pair. Good luck!
