The California Thoroughbred Breeders Association and the Oak Tree Racing Association are offering the "2000 California Cup Fantasy Challenge," an on-line handicapping contest centered around the California Cup races at Santa Anita on Oct. 28. California Cup day features 10 stakes races for California-breds, including the featured $250,000 Wells Fargo Bank California Cup Classic, a 1 1/8-mile race for horses 3-years-old and older.
Contest players select a fantasy stable of seven Cal-breds and points will be allotted to the top three finishers in each of the seven California Cup divisional stakes races. The winner of the top prize will receive an oil pastel painting of California-bred Best Pal, with other prizes for the remaining top 10 finishers. (More, 2000 California Cup Fantasy Challenge
