The 2008 Belmont Contest

OK, Handicappers, Here's the contest:
Pick the top three finishers in the order that you think they will finish. You will receive 10 points for each horse that finishes in the top three PLUS an additional 50 points if you have the horse in the right finish position.




Example
1. Third (10)
2. First (10)
3. Second (10) is worth 30 points

Example
1. First (10 + 50)
2. Third (10)
3. Second (10) is worth 80 points

Let me know if you have any questions. The points scored in the Belmont Contest will be added to the points you have earned in the Derby and Preakness Contests. There is a possible 180 points that can be earned in the Belmont Contest, so everybody still has a shot to win. The prize will be the Triple Crown glass set. (1 Derby glass, 1 Preakness glass, 1 Belmont glass, and 1 Triple Crown glass) Good Luck to all!

2 Guadalcanal


3 Macho Again

Call me paranoid, but I smell a rat.

Nora said...

Chris, you're paranoid! But nice second place! Very gritty effort!~

the horse clearly didn't have it. you could see it long before he was pulled up. Nevertheless, I think it was a poor ride by kd. He fought the horse most of the race and ran him way wide around 2 turns. I think he choked again. That doesn't mean Dutrow should have called him out publicly though.
