    The Preakness...Get Your Picks In!

    Same deal as with the Derby.  Pick your three horses.  Order doesn't matter.  Points are awarded by finish.  First place gets 1 point.  Ninth gets 9.  Lowest point total wins.  Winner gets to choose an avatar for ANY participant in the game.  Chosen participant changes the avatar for a span of one week.  Try not to copy someone else's picks.  Duplicates will be disqualified (but can be changed!)

    Good luck!

    1. Orb

    2. Goldencents

    3. Titletown Five

    4. Departing

    5. Mylute

    6. Oxbow

    7. Will Take Charge

    8. Govenor Charlie

    9. Itsmyluckyday

     

    Also, because this is my game, I reserve the right to reject any entrants.

    It goes by total finish.  My head was spinning when I was adding them up. 

    This is why I asked for my math to be checked. 

    And YOU ARE CORRECT!  I had you as the winner initially, posted a congrats and everything, and then got all confused by myself.

    I had nine points.  You had eight!  Great job, amigo!

    Please pick your victim and post his new avatar!

    Ok, I was afraid of winning. Maybe I'll celebrate and get myself an avatar since I don't have one. So you're all off the hook. At least until the Belmont in 3 weeks. After, of course, the Rangers are eliminated!
