This contest will run from right now thru July 1st. I and others will pick out feature races on Saturdays (occasionally a Friday or Sunday race will be included). You pick one horse per race. You will get a hypothetical $2 win, $2 place and $2 show bet on your pick. The person with the highest total on July 1st wins a souvenir package from me. I'll be playing along too, but just for fun. If your horse gets scratched, try to post an alternate before post time. I'll use the post time in the DRF charts. So if the race went off at 5:34, your post must be at 5:33 or earlier. If you don't post an alternate, then you have no pick for the race. Since this is a three-month contest, you CAN choose the horse that somebody else already picked.

    Effinex is also not running on lasix (due to his owner experimenting with being able to win without the help of lasix) and has won before without lasix. infact, this horse has never been on lasix. let alone any medication whatsoever

    If I took Effinex and he won at 50-1, the contest would be over! But I don't count. I'm only playing to teach you people a lesson!
  • haha indeed
  • im sure the odds will change as the day draws near
  • Yeah, I doubt he'll go off that high.
  • lol hes not a loser thats for sure...people are just unsure of him. hes got 1 win and a win by disqualification (he finished 2nd but was impeded so was place first) and a 5th but that was his maiden race.
  • A lot of divorcees will put $2 on him.
  • haha
  • thats a whole lot of child support money he could win
  • true!!!!
  • Wonder if hell stay at 50-1 then lol
  • Can we pick horses that some of you picked?

  • Yes Louise, you can pick some or all of the same horses another person picks, there is bound to be some overlap. I might change the rule in the last week though.
  • Also one more rule, for example if somebody picked #2 Ria Antonia, she's actually #3. So the name will be the actual pick if you accidently post the wrong number.
  • My Picks;

    The Wood: Samraat

    Ashland: Testa Rossi

    Fantasy: Sugar Shock

    Santa Anita Oaks: Ria Antonia

    Santa Anita Derby: California Chrome
