BOTTOM'S UP HANDICAPPING CONTEST

Bottoms ‘Up Handicapping Contest

How good are you at picking winners? How about picking LOSERS? If you are very good at picking losers, this is the contest for you!!!

The Bottoms ‘Up Handicapping Contest involves not picking the winner of a specified race, but one of the losers. The objective is to pick a horse that will finish in one of the bottom three positions.

The contest will last for a period of 8 weeks. Each week a race will be announced for either a Saturday or Sunday race. Selections need to be made prior to post time for each race.

Scoring will be based on the odds of the horse (strickly dollars, change not included) and accumulated over the duration of the contest. He or she with the most points at the end, will be declared the winner. In case of a tie for the top position the contest will continue with those that are tied only, until the tie is broken.

Scoring will be: Pick the last place horse, receive the odds of the horse.
Pick the 2nd to last horse, receive half the odds of the horse.
Pick the 3rd to last horse, receive one-third the odds of the horse.

To illustrate the scoring, we will use a horse at odds of 19.80 as an example. A last place finish would score 19 points (change dropped off). A 2nd to last would score 9 points (19 divided by 2 with all change dropped off). A 3rd to last would score 6 points (19 divided by 3 with all change dropped off).

Prizes for the contest:
Winner- 900 credits, a prize horse and a bag of chestnuts from Squirrel.
2nd place 450 credits
3rd place 300 credits

Strike the chestnuts from Squirrel…she consumed them during the winter, thus her shiny coat she wears.

The contest is open to Comedy Central Residents only and will commence on March 2, 2013. All posted selections are to be made within this thread. Also, please indicate your desire to participate here.

I'm in. Though shouldn't we get more points if we pick a 1/5 horse that comes in last than a 99/1 horse that comes in last (it seems harder to predict the 1/5 horse).
