Since the 26th is also my birthday, I'll propose a friendly competion to celebrate. Place your "bet" by choosing your horse (here's the field--scroll down the page) and posting your choice here. I'll announce a winner after the race. Link

George Formby Centenary Stakes
This Friday, May 21, Haydock Park Racecourse will host The George Formby Centenary Stakes in commemoration of George's 100th birthday on May 26. Formby once rode as a professional jockey, but--luckily for us--was forced to leave the sport when he grew too heavy. The banjo ukulele beckoned, and a legend was born.
