  • Rules
    Picks are to be made DAY OF EACH RACE, starting at 12:01 AM EASTERN (that's one minute after midnight Friday night... or Saturday morning... depending on your point of view) and ending at the post time as it appears on this thread.
    Once made, NO changes or substitutions allowed. Period.
    If your horse is scratched or does not finish, you get the total number of horses in the gate at the bell as your score.

    You are still in top spot I think.
  • Congratulations to Sarinne, again, for winning the Challenge.
    And to Carol and K for coming in second.


    Prizes
    Winner gets bragging rights!
    And gets to choose 3 of the Breeders' Cup races for the 2017 BC Challenge.
    Second gets to choose 2 of the BC races for that Challenge.
    Third gets to choose 1.


    As we have a tie for second, each will get to pick 2 BC races for the BC Challenge.
  • Congratulations to the winners!!!
  • Thank you, and thank you whoodler for the concept and keeping track. When would you prefer for me to make my race selections for the BC?

    You can whenever... it's some time off... like months... let's say mid-October... or whenever... I'm easy.
    Actually, do we do all the BC races for the game? Or just the usual number? Lot of work for my better half if we do them all.
