The results are in! Let's congratulate Squeaky for a flawless array of selections, and let's also thank them for winning by daylight so I didn't have to implement a very messy tiebreaker.

The official order of finish (note that these numbers were calculated using the official race order of finish as well):

Squeaky: 65
katmandu: 55
Tessablue: 55
Sparrow Castle: 55
MySaladDays: 55
slewobarney: 55
carole: 50
Spahny: 50
stark: 50
ThreeMustangs: 50
Charlie: 46
ElPrado2: 45
Personal Ensign: 45
Big Ten: 40
agrussel: 40
tcw: 35
Kennedy: 35
middleground: 35
The Shadow: 35
Life at Zen: 31
Matt Converse: 30
Apollo: 30
starrydreamer: 25
Dusty: 25
tranquilo: 25
peeptoad: 25
firehorse: 25
Horsebagger: 25
Mylute: 21
Kurenai: 20
Northport: 20
Palace Malice: 20
Post Time Mike: 20
THIRTYSIXRED: 5
Catalina: 5
Miss Woodford: 5
Katewerk: 0

Feel free to double-check my math. I also calculated the results using the original order of finish- Big Ten and agrussel would have had the most points by that standard. Congrats also to katmandu for coming very close to predicting the final time (2:04 vs 2:03.93) and final margin (neck vs. 3/4 length).

Thank you to everyone for participating!

Sorry, Squeak, but it looks like you selected Code of Honor (Pool B) as your Pool C selection.
If I missed something due to editing, I apologize to all especially Squeaky and ask that Tessa "Maximum Security" me to last place with 0 points.

1. Select one horse from each of the pools listed below.

Pool B
Maximum Security
Tacitus
Win Win Win
Code of Honor

Pool C
War of Will
Tax
Vekoma

My shame is only mollified by seeing "Miss Woodford" just above my name. ;-)

Oh goodness, I didn't notice this... thank you for pointing it out! To be honest I don't quite have the time right now to figure this out, but I'll be back later tonight to do so.

It's only fair that a controversial Derby produces a controversial Derby contest!

Oh my god now I have to leave the game again. Will it never end?

Wait a minute this means I move up in the results.

Ok. I'm back again.

Depending on who you used for your ADW you may even get your money back, congrats!
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

Yes just realized I messed up- still jet lagged from Hawaii business trip- I deserve to be DQ’d- congrats to winners! Thanks for running the contest and I will be more careful next year. Me and Max Security both DQ’d! 😝
