selected for them by drawing a number from a drum. The number will represent
the post position of the horse. The horse selection will be witnessed by a
Lobster Carnival representative.

horse is first to cross the finish line will win $2,000, the winner whose horse
finishes second will win $500 and the winner whose horse finishes third wins 50
pounds of lobster. If there is a tie between any of the horses, there will be a
draw to decide the placement of the winners.
