  1. I would have thought the only 2 that could possibly line-up in all three legs would be JANOOBI & AL SAHEM.

    I did it , I did it , I did it . One of the sweetest and cheapest wins I ever had in 36 years.

    2 x Pick6 perm winners — One banker Smiley Blues Eyes , one banker Janoobi

    I’m as high as a kite.
