Win a Book!

Here is your chance to win a copy of the new book "Three Strides Before the Wire" by Elizabeth Mitchell (read review) courtesy of Hyperion Books. This is an excellent book telling the story of Charismatic's run for the Triple Crown along with information about his connections including a detailed biography of the tragic story of Chris Antley. All you have to do is fill out the form below with the correct answer to the Charismatic trivia question will be entered in the drawing for one of three copies of the book. Only one entry per email address will be taken. Winning entries will be contacted for their shipping address. You may also try to win a copy by entering the forum handicapping contest for Belmont day where the winner will also receive a copy of the book.

Entries close at midnight Eastern time on June 7th (timing based on when I receive your entry) and winners will be drawn from the correct entries on June 10th and notified that evening.

Sorry, but entries are now closed.
Congratulations to the winners:

Arlene Murray of Palm Bay, FL
Christopher O'Connor of Norwalk, CT
James Powell of McKinney, TX
Robert Beveridge of Parma, OH

The first three were drawn at random from those who registered online. The fourth copy went to the winner of the Belmont day handicapping contest on our forum. Watch for more contests in the future and try again!
