Title: Kentucky Derby 2007 Contest!!
Post by bookies_original on May 4th, 2007 at 1:54am
Since the Kentucky Derby is also known as the "Run for the Roses" and The Romantics were "born" on a very rosey holiday (Valentines Day), we thought it only appropriate to offer up a little contest just for the fun of it!!
Be the first to correctly pick the winner of the Kentucky Derby, which will run this Saturday, Cinco de Mayo, (May 5th for all you gringos) and you will win some fabulous prize to be determined at a later date (something band related though like a t-shirt, guitar pic, etc.)
Now, we know every contest must have rules so here goes:
1. One entry per board member
2. All entries MUST be posted no later than 5/5/07 @ 2pm EST
3.  Be sure of your pick because you will not be allowed to "modify" your horse once you post
4. If nobody correctly picks the winner, all entries will be put into a hat and a winner will be drawn at random.
5. Should your horse be "scratched" you will be permitted to post an alternate selection provided it is done so by 2pm EST.

The field is as follows:
1 Sedgefield 50-1
2 Curlin   7-2
3 Zanjero  30-1
4 Storm in May 30-1
5 Imawildandcrazyguy 50-1
6 Cowtown Cat  20-1
7 Street Sense  4-1
8 Hard Spun  15-1
9 Liquidity  30-1
10 Teuflesberg 30-1
11 Bwana Bull  50-1
12 Nobiz Like Shobiz 8-1
13 Sam P.  20-1
14 Scat Daddy 10-1
15 Tiago  15-1
16 Circular Quay  8-1
17 Stormello 30-1
18 Any Given Saturday 12-1
19 Dominican  20-1
20 Great Hunter 15-1

Bookies--did you say if nobody wins, the highest finishing pick wins?   ;)  Or do you pick the winner out of a hat?
