  1. Thank you. A wonderful diversion. Just what I needed as the coffee was a tad slow in kicking in. Even got some of them right!

    1. I consider that a good score if you are American, and even better if you are not, given the American tilt of the questions.

  2. Yes, I'd have liked to have seen a few more non-US steeds: Babieca, Incitatus, Marengo, Copenhagen, White Surrey
