Joanna Batkins submitted a magnificent small black item for 2003 . Initially, knowing her expert knowledge of horses, doubts were cast as to whether it could possibly be a stone. It was agreed that if it did originate from a horse, at least it was fossilized.

However it transpired that she had been so keen to win the vast 2003p fortune that she had flown to India and, enduring great hardships and privations, had traveled on into the foothills of the Himalayas to meet with a wise Guru who had sold her this rare stone.


She wins the 2003 prize.
