    I knew when I saw them trying to get rid of the puddles on the track that it would take a mudder to win. I just had no idea which horse that would be. :redface: I chose Chocolate Candy to win cause I thought the name was cute. :tongue: Thank God I didn't place a real bet. :biggrin1:

    I host a party every year, and ran the book... 50+ bets... only one winner for a Place... thanks to that Forrest Gump of a pony.

    Forrest Gump? :confused: :irked: He ran a damned good race! It's not like he just eaked out a win by a nose, as many past winners have done. That pony won by almost 7 lengths. Hell, the jockey had time to wave his crop at his fiancee. :biggrin1:

    Personally, I LOVE it when an underdog or never was comes out on top. :cool:
