Winners will be selected at random.Good luck…Here’s the first puzzler:

You own a farm and have raised 25 racehorses. Each horse runs at a different constant pace. When the horses race they will always run at the same pace no matter how many times they race. You are trying to find your three fastest horses. You do not have a clock of any kind to time the horses, and you can only race five horses against each other at a time. What is the minimum number of races you need to conduct in order to find your three fastest racehorses.
