How about some fun?

Win / Place contests are nice, but a bit boring. Let's do some exotics pickin'!

WHO'S IN??

Rules are simple:
1. Pick FIVE (5) horses for each Saturday BC race. (I'm not interested in doing this for both days.)

No alternates. First scratch gets post-time fave, if you didn't already use; second scratch, etc., too bad.

2. Scores based on 5 horse $1 exacta box, 5 horse 50 cent tri box, and 5 horse 10 cent super box. Add in Super Hi 5 (10 cent box) for those races that offer that bet.

Kicker: take your best / favorite race, and hang the DOUBLER label on it; and mutuels you get from that race will be doubled. ONE RACE ONLY.

3. I am willing to keep score for Saturday's BC races. We will use only the Grade I races, Santa Anita races 4 thru 12. 

PLEASE KEEP IT SIMPLE! Like this:

R4) 3 4 5 6 9
R5) 1 4 5 7 8  **DOUBLER**
R6) 4 6 8 10 11
(etc.)
R12) 2 4 6 8 10

No horse names, no race names, nothing fancy....just make sure it's clear and easy to understand.

4. Post time for Santa Anita race 4 is 11:50 am PDT, which is 1:50 pm Chicago time.

Please have your picks in by 1:45 pm Chicago time, put them right in this thread.

5. I will come up with some sort of prize for the winner.

Good.

No "I'M THE BEST 'CAPPER IN THE WORLD" stuff, or any other stuff...just fun.

Let it all hang out.

Go ahead, throw that "stinker" in there -- you're getting FIVE shots per race -- and hell, if you get a SPAIN or a CARESSING or an ARCANGUES type bomber up for a win, you'll probably win the contest outright.

Best damn day of the year to take a few stabs. These are ALL Grade I races...could that 80-1 shot be THAT bad??

Oh boy, I love this thread.  I am going in so blind, this helps me when I finally get a form tomorrow.  I can't believe I don't have one the night before.  Waaaaa.  I am going to have two margaritas before dinner.  That's how ticked I am.

No problem.

I figured the last horse was going to be the "snip", since you apparently listed your horses by rank...but I don't want to fool with anyone's selections. Thanks.
