This is updated through everything but the Australian races later tonight. I will get to that sometime tomorrow evening. I recommend double-checking your own scoring. If you see any issues, let me know.

Dan thanks for hosting this contest this year. Although I didn't participate I followed it very closely due to 2 of my horses being on the winning team. Speak With Fists had an incredible year and although he may get passed over in the Turf Horse of the Year voting, at least he is the top horse in your contest. I'll admit it was hard not running in the Arc or SC but Speak With Fists performs best at 1 1/4 or shorter distances.

Suggestion to future contestants: I think if this contest continues that those who play should take into consideration factors other than a gallop comment or speed figure because some owners are so focused on winning the big race that they run their horses in races they will never win. Also don't hesitate to contact owners and ask about possible hidden gems. For instance I have a filly, Here Comes Bride, that wasn't drafted this season but scored 196 points. I knew she was pretty good just like I knew Naval Commander wasn't all that good. The Escape Plan was drafted way to high. Anyway I hope this contest continues and best of luck to all who particpate.

Thanks for doing this Dan :) really enjoyed it, even if I have somehow dramatically dropped from 6/7th to 10th after the last few days.

Congrats Laura! You dominated this thing. You beat me (2nd place) by the same distance between me (2nd) and 12th place. That's crazy!

Thanks Dan. Good times and I would've easily won if it weren't for Tim Matthews. Just throwing that out there... :)

The excitement is over! But TR will probably remain my favorite flat division. Thanks Dan.

Didn’t know where to post this but I’m so happy to have both of my star 3yo colts nominated for Simmies! Even though I know their competition is strong, just being nominated is enough of an achievement for me :D

There is a uh interesting competitor lined up to take his chances at the Steward’s Cup Turf :shock:

I wonder if that would have been allowed in real life :P

The first three seasons of this guy may be more intriguing :lol:
I meant his name ;)

But to be fair to Zipless II, he was an awesome chaser!

I remember not that long ago, Portrait in Death's kids were all running in the SC Turf as well. She of course was a special mare herself, running 35 times and earning $0
I assume the spirit of Zipless never dies
