I didn't get picks from caesari, so he and tubby are eliminated.  We will give out a power play clue to the winner of the challenge.  Forgive the formatting I'll fix later.

Challenge #4 Teams

This will be a VOTING WEEK! Instead of using a kill pick to determine who gets sent to the elimination challenge, teams will vote (survivor style). There will be 3 teams, which are posted below. The teams that finish 2nd and 3rd place will each vote one player to the elimination challenge. The team that finishes in 1st place is safe. In addition, the first place team will vote one more player (from the 2nd or 3rd place team) to the elimination challenge. Voting tie-breaks are listed in the rules (one re-vote…if still tied, entire team goes to elimination). There will be a few of these voting weeks throughout the competition. The teams below were randomly selected by csudak.

Team 1
osgonlz (captain)
amorak
2legit
stevedotdec
polabonez

Team 2
redraider68 (captain)

Challenge #4: A Day at the Races – Monmouth Park Haskell Stakes
(Entries must be submitted by the team captain. Make sure to submit to all 3 hosts. No kill picks are needed)

Deadline: Sunday at 1pm EST

This Sunday, there will be a full day of horse racing at Monmouth Park, leading up to the $1,000,000 Haskell Stakes. Television coverage will occur on NBC from 5-6pm EST. Nine races are selected below (Races 4-12 on the Sunday Monmouth racing card). The early odds are also posted, but will change as post-time approaches. Keep an eye out for scratches…if any of your horses do not race, then tough luck!

Teams will pick one horse from each race and that horse will receive a $2 across-the-board bet (win, place, and show). The Haskell Stakes (Race 12) will be a $10 bet, so you will receive 5x the payout compared to the other races. The team with the most combined money won is the winner.

Across-The-Board Example:
  Win Place Show
1st Place: 6 LONGING FOR QUIET 7.00 4.60 2.20
2nd Place: 4 SUESTEPS   9.80 3.00
3rd Place: 1 SLEWIE JONES     2.10
-Longing For Quiet would earn $13.80
-Suesteps would earn $12.80
-Slewie Jones would earn $2.10
-All other horses would earn nothing

Power Play: There are two secret horses for this challenge. If one or both of these horses are picked by your team, it will be a “risk-free” bet. That means the minimum payout for each of these horses is $6, even if they do not finish in the top 3. Clues to the secret identity of these horses will be sent to survivors of the last elimination challenge.

To clarify, each team picks one horse per race.
Tie-breaker #1: Number of races that had a horse in the top 3 (no submission needed)
Tie-breaker #2: Payout of the $1 Trifecta bet on the Haskell Stakes – Race #12 (captain must submit amount)
7/25/2014 6:27 PM (edited)
Races & Odds: Pick one horse from each of the nine races.  Feel free to use THIS PROGRAM, which is from the Monmouth Park website, for more information on the horses.  Remember that the odds will change and some horses will be scratched, so you might want to submit as close to the deadline as possible!
