We received a huge amount of entries for this year’s Rolex Pick ‘Em contest, presented by Omega Alpha. Your picks to win ranged from the obvious (Michael Jung and La Biosthetique Sam) to the underdog (Maya Black and Doesn’t Play Fair), with plenty of love for Buck Davidson and Lauren Kieffer spread around.
It’s a tough game to try to pick the winner of an event such as this, with so many variable factors coming into play. What with the weather, the footing, the unpredictability that comes hand in hand with horses, and about a million other factors to take into consideration, it’s truly a game of both skill and luck.
While many entrants for this year’s contest went with the always consistent La Biosthetique Sam, we had just one person who bucked the trend and went for the girl power, and this person is now the well-deserved winner of our Omega Alpha Pick ‘Em contest!
Congratulations to Madison King, who correctly selected Michael Jung and fischerRocana FST as the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event winners. She was fairly close on her predicted score — she said they’d end on a 41.7, when they actually ended on a 39.3 — but since she was the only entrant to pick correctly she did not need to have the score correct.
Madison will receive an Omega Alpha prize pack consisting of a gallon of Gastra-FX as well as a 1 kg bucket of Biotic 8. You can read a review on these products here — they’ve been very popular with our readers so we’re positive Madison will enjoy them.
Congratulations again to Madison and thank you to all of you who entered! We received over 75 picks this year and we are continually impressed with your participation. Please join us in thanking Omega Alpha for their continued support of the Rolex Pick ‘Em contest, and we can’t wait to do it again next year!
