    2012 Smarty Jones Stakes

    My fellow equestrians,

    You are cordially invited to participate in the 2012 edition of TAT's Smarty Jones Stakes!

    At the onset of this contest, we will give each participant $10,000 to spend as he or she sees fit. Bets will be placed by players before each of the three triple crown races, as soon as odds are posted. You may bet as little or as much of your money as you wish on each race, betting on as many or as few horses as you like.

    A horse selected that wins will pay out in full. A horse that comes in second will pay out half, and a horse that comes in third will pay out a quarter. There will be no exactas or trifectas or any of that silliness.

    We look forward to seeing all of you on the tracks, as this contest trots along.

    Stay tuned for the specific details, but picks will be due before the start of the race on Saturday, May 5.

    If you would like to start scouting your selections, feel free to visit http://www.kentuckyderby.com/

    Scoring will work as it should this year, making it so you cannot lose money while a horse of yours still places. For example, betting $1000 a horse with 2/1 odds that comes in second will pay $2000 back.
    Go Pack Go!

    Re: 2012 Smarty Jones Stakes

    Hansen is quite possibly the most beautiful thoroughbred I've ever seen. He's not just gray, he's almost white!

    Next question: How is Ramon Dominguez going to ride two horses in the same race (Alpha and Hansen)?
