Kentucky Derby

The Kentucky Derby is this Saturday, May 7th. I am pretty sure that post time is 6:30, but I cannont find an official post time anywhere. I will not be near a computer on Saturday around post time so you will have to wait until Sunday to see how everyone else did.

What I want from you is win, place and show (for those of you who don't gamble: that's 1st, 2nd, and 3rd). What several people did last year was give me an alternate just in case one of to horses they picked ended up scratching on race day.

Actual Result: Animal Kingdom, Nehro, Mucho Macho Man
Bandit: Dialed In, Nehro, Archarcharch (5pts)
Butters: Nehro, Mucho Macho Man, Dialed In (4pts)
Carmen: Shackleford, Dialed In, Stay Thirsty (0pts)
Evan: Dialed In, Mucho Macho Man, Nehro (4pts)
Gimpy: Dialed In, Twice The Appeal, Nehro (2pts)
Graves: NONE (0pts)
Jay: Pants On Fire, Dialed in, Watch Me Go (0pts)
Kubatski: Nehro, Twice The Appeal, Pants On Fire (2pts)
Kubatski III: Twice The Appeal, Dialed In, Archarcharch (0pts)
Kubatski Sr: Mucho Macho Man, Midnight Interlude, Twice The Appeal (2pts)
L-Train: Dialed In, Nehro, Soldat (5pts)
Marty: Dialed In, Mucho Macho Man, Twice The Appeal (2pts)
Paulie: Dialed In, Uncle Mo, Shackleford (0pts)
Princess G: Pants On Fire, Dialed In, Mucho Macho Man (5pts)

Scoring will be as follows.

You will receive 2 points for each of your horses that actually finish in the top 3. You will receive 3 "bonus" points for each horse that finishes exactly where you said they would within the top 3.

To rephrase:
15 points - 3, exactly right
10 points - 2, exactly right
9 points - 3 finishers, 1 exact
7 points - 2 finishers, 1 exact
6 points - 3 finishers, wrong spots
5 points - 1, exactly right
4 points - 2 finishers, wrong spots
2 points - 1 finisher, wrong spot
