Closest time

Toby Atencio, 95, is the lucky winner of $800 for making the closest guess to the winning time in the burro race. He lives in Leadville during the summer with his daughter Loretta Vigil. He remembers the burro races from way back, when they started in Leadville and finished in Fairplay and visa versa. He has been buying raffle tickets for as long as they have been sold. He plans to use the prize money to help his daughters, and may go gambling with the Senior Center group next time. The actual winning time of Marvin Sandoval and Buttercup was 3:45:37.7. Atencio guessed 3:45:38.2, only half a second away.
