2nd leg of FT Triple Crown

142nd Kentucky Derby


This year's Run For The Roses is almost here. The scoring system for the Kentucky Derby comp is the same as the Grand National comp earlier this month:

SCORING RULES
    o The rules for this comp are simple, and are the same as last year and the year before.
    o Pick 10 horses in the order you think they'll finish, 1st to 10th.
    o Points: for any horse out of the 10 you've picked, which finishes in the first five places:
      1st : 10 pts
      2nd : 6 pts
      3rd : 3 pts
      4th : 2 pts
      5th : 1 pt
    o The order of your picks will be used as a tiebreaker to separate any dead-heats or ties.
    o If two players have identical picks x10, whoever posts first wins the tie-breaker.
DEADLINE
    The race starts on Saturday 7th May 2016 at 4:35pm. Tips close on
    the hour at
    4:00pm with a short period of grace of a few minutes.
    There is a count-down clock to the race start time on this webpage,
    near the top LH corner : kentuckyderby.com.
The following webpages (of many out there) have details of the contenders and their form:The field of 20 runners and their post positions (barrier draw) will be announced
three days before the race at around 5:30pm ET on Wednesday 4th May 2016.
    Picks x10 can be posted at any time in this thread, even if the field of 20 hasn't been announced! Please note that there is no need to pick reserves. If your horse is scratched, so be it (we've got half the field covered with our 10 picks). However, as is the case with any tipping comp in here, you are free to edit your picks at any time before the deadline.

      • there were no upsets this year. The bookies saw their satchels emptied at Churchill Downs as all the favourites came home. If all of us were at the track we may have needed a wheelbarrow to carry our winnings out of the track, lol
      • tie-breaker countbacks were required for every position except 12th to 14th.
      • there was a seven-way dead-heat for the gold medal .. that's half the field!
      • three of those seven had the hide to pick the first three across the line as their1st, 2nd and 3rd picks! We needed tie-breaker #4 to determine the threemedallists.
      • in what is surely a first for any leg of the FT Triple Crown, since the 1st back in 2003, N-Bomb won gold as he picked the first four across the line as, wait for it, his 1st 2nd 3rd and 4th pick!
      • Howie72 won silver as he picked 4th with pick #7 vs. pick #8 for 22crows.
      • the defending titleholder, Sypher, didn't get to the track this year. Last year's silver medallist was Howie72, which makes it back-to-back silver .. in fact it's three back-to-back silvers as he also collected silver in 2014! Before that N-Bomb, this year's winner, won back-to-back silver in 2013 and 2012.
      • this was the 14th running of the Kentucky Derby comp .. the defending titleholder has never won this, and buck5ley is the only one to have won this twice (he won it in 2005 and then again in and 2007).
      • that completes the second leg of the FT Triple Crown. The third leg, the Melbourne Cup, will be run on the first Tuesday in November.
      • we will wait until next year to see if anyone can win the FT Triple Crown. The three medallists in the Grand National [ George95-illiniman14-gtho4 ] did not make the podium in the Kentucky Derby.
