Former Virginia HBPA president and current National HBPA president Robin Richards of Boyce was one of three winners of’s Virginia Derby Trivia Sweepstakes.

Bob McGarry of Louisville, KY and Michael Harris of St. Davids, PA were also winners who (we presume) split the $300 prize.

Oh, and the answers…

1. Which Virginia Derby winner holds the stakes records for both the fastest winning time and the longest winning odds?  That’d be Red Giant.

2. Which Virginia Derby winner collected the highest career earnings on the track?  Gio Ponti, who earned more than $6 million, is the big winner.

3. Which Virginia Derby winner recorded the most career victories?  Silver Tree won 14 times to lead all Virginia Derby champs.

4. And of course, the winner of the 2013 Virginia Derby was War Dancer.

(Editor’s Note: got all the answers right, but we foolishly only entered once and subsequently went down in flames with the favorite. Congrats to Robin.)
