Just For Fun - An 8-Race Contest For A Snowy Saturday

Here in West Virginia, another snow storm is in progress, which makes it an ideal kind of day to sit back and (mythically) play a contest.  I've included six stakes races and thrown in a couple of others to make it more interesting.  Format is NHC-style: $2 to win and place on one horse.  We're all grown ups, so if you play, keep your own total.  Winner gets hearty congratulations.  (My real goal is to stay sharp and see if I can net $40 from the 8 wagers, which is what I would hope for from 8 mandatory races in an actual NHC qualifying contest).  Two entries are allowed.

Put your picks in below.  As long as they are in before the race goes off, they count!

Here are the races:

Leg 1 - Fair Grounds Race 5 - Dixie Poker Ace Stakes, 1 Mile, Turf (Post 3:38 EST)

Leg 2 - Aqueduct Race 8 - Busanda Stakes, 1 Mile 70 yards (Post: 3:45 EST)

Leg 3 - Gulfstream Race 7 - Spectaular Bid Stakes, 6 Furlongs (Post: 3:52 EST)
