Default Year End Champions and Awards

Champion for the 2018-2019 Handicapping Year Points and ROI Contest is:JOLYB
as the final totals through the BC Cards are shown below. Ruffian made it a good fight to the end and did not miss by much, with both players hitting a tremendous 600 point total leaving the rest of us in their dust.

1. 634 JolyB
2. 615 Ruffian-333
3. 388 Cal828
4. 281 Real Quiet
5. 268 DonGuido
6. 254 Plenilune
7. 235 Cruzan200246
8. 223 Roamin42
9. 132 Indian Hemp
10 59 NJ Stinks

Thanks to all for playing and making it very easy to look forward to every Saturday's brain teaser.

2019 GALLIVAN CUP is awarded to DonGuido. Somehow he has a real nack for the Gallican Cup BC contest as a repeat winner again.

The ROI Champion will be posted appropriately by RealQuiet after he gets his abacus to cool down a bit. I'm sure his report will be filled with facts and figures and fun innuendo.

BIG THANKS to Plenilune, JolyB and RealQuiet for all they do for us all year long to keep this forum moving in the right direction!!!

Congrats to Joly B for winning the overall title in 2019. 600 points entails a lot of in the money finishes and nobody does it better than Joly. Kudos on a good effort Ruff. You pressed JB all year. Congrats Don for another Gallivan Cup win. You really step it up for the Breeders Cup weekend. When does the Cup go on permanent display in Texas?

The Cup is here in our new 1BR Apt and will stay here until I ship it off to next years winner, or maybe the Texas dust will just get deeper. 5 out of 8 yrs is pretty crazy, I must say. You have 2 and Ruffian 1. If I told you my formula I'd be lying.

When you can win 5 years out of 8, you can claim any formula you wish and none of us could contradict you. Very nicely done.
