  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!

  2. It took a couple of guesses, but I got them all! Now I have to explain to my wife why I'm so proud.

  3. Scored 9, even though I immediately knew only 4. Them educated guesses sure come in handy, sometimes.

    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.

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