2009 Breeder's Cup Contest

Welcome to the 2009 Breeder's Cup Contest. The rules are simple; pick three horses per race, in no particular order. You will receive 5 points for a win, 3 points for second, and 1 point for third. The winner will be the person who gets the most points at the end of all 14 races.

We are playing for the lovely prize of a Calder Race Course beach towel. This contest is free to play and open to everyone. Get your family and friends in on the action for a competitive contest this year. The more the merrier!

Please try to keep track of any changes or scratches as I may not be able to update them for you on time. Also, please check my entries for any errors that may have occurred due to sloppy copying and pasting. Good luck to all. Scroll down and start picking!

According to my poll, I should be expecting 14 players besides myself. I better not find out that anyone was double voting!

Nora - as usual my little brother, John 'Buster' Baldwin has asked me to post his choices for the contest.

Nora said...

Don't worry, Chris... you're a cinch to win the biggest pain in the ass award.

Chris C. said...

Just because I clearly have too much time on my hands:

Nora of the North said...

Wow, I can't believe it, I'm no. one, but it probably won't last through today. Good luck to all of us.

Joan B said...

I'm in between the two Nora's which is where I spend most of my time anyway :)
Nora - South - I always get very sentimental these days when I see a race track.
Thomas - Doing very well without a Form aren't you?
I just told Nora North she was yesterday's star.

Nora said...

I feel like Nora North needs her own prize if she doesn't win the whole thing. I am going to give her the Queen of Queens prize as the high scoring female on the filly day.

Nora said...
