Horse Players (A Betting Game)



  • Best Picker of 3YOs Challenge


    Along with deciding whether to stick to your own horses or pick something else to ride IN THE DERBY, you can pick a filly to back in the Oaks. If she hits the board you get the usual 10-4-2-1 added to your score. If she doesn't, you lose the 1 point for each of your horses who have made it into the Derby field.

    Oaks picks must be made by noon on Friday, May 4h. Again, by separate posting. And another again: no changes, no substitutions.

    1. Sassy Sienna (Gary Stevens, 15-1),
    2. Coach Rocks (Luis Saez, 12-1),
    3. Classy Act (Brian Hernandez Jr., 15-1),
    4. Chocolate Martini (Javier Castellano, 12-1),
    5. Wonder Gadot (John Velazquez, 20-1),
    6. Kelly's Humor (Irad Ortiz Jr., 30-1),
    7. Rayya (Van Dyke, 15-1),
    8. Heavenhasmynikki (Calvin Borel, 30-1),
    9. Take Charge Paula (Jose Ortiz, 15-1),
    10. Midnight Bisou (Smith 5-2),
    11. My Miss Lilly (Bravo, 10-1),
    12. Patrona Margarita(Ricardo Santana Jr., 30-1),
    13. Eskimo Kisses (Corey Lanerie, 15-1)
    14. Monomoy Girl (Geroux, 2-1)

    I love it! You are clever, Wh!!
  • So here's MY Oaks pick for the TC part of the 3 YO Picker Challenge:
    which means I am risking the 3 points my Derby entries have brought me.

    How does this effect those who drop a colt for the derby from their barn, as was outlined earlier, as far as scoring?

    You do NOT drop anything for the Derby. You have the five in your stable AND can add a TEMPORARY horse for the Derby.
    If you choose a new horse, you will get points on the 10-4-2-1 scale if that horse or your barn horses finish in first through fourth place.
    If you opt to go with the horses you already have, you will get DOUBLE the points (20-8-4-2) for any horses finishing in first through fourth place.

    EXAMPLE: Let's say you opt to add a TEMPORARY horse...
    Noble Indy... and he finishes first and 3 of your stable horses finish second, third and fourth. You win a total of 17 points on the Derby.
    You stick with JUST your barn and four of your horses (if you have four) finish first, second, third and fourth you get 34 points for the Derby.
    As a note,
    Big H has 5 entered
    Carol, 3
    Jan, 4
    Me, 3
    Sarinne, 4
    and Wez, 2.

    my oaks pick for challenge is Monomoy Girl....I think she is good enough to overcome that outside post
  • KMMKMM Member
    For the challenge. I know I have no chance. B)
  • No. You don't have 3 horses to give up and you don't have any horses in the Derby so you can't meet any of the 3YO Picker challenge conditions.
