BrainBashers Derby - Logic Puzzles

After the local BrainBashers Horse Show, some friends were telling everyone who had won.

Unfortunately, the friends were having trouble remembering, and in the course of the afternoon, they changed their minds a number of times.

In summary, they made the following statements:
Andy said:
Taylor Tripton won with Evening Sunrise.
Alex Ambleton won with Morning Sunset.
Frankie Flanton won with Evening Sunrise.

Billie said:
Sam Spinton won with Midday Night.
Frankie Flanton won with Evening Sunrise.
Taylor Tripton won with Morning Sunset.

Chris said:
Alex Ambleton won with Midday Night.
Sam Spinton won with Midday Night.
Sam Spinton won with Morning Sunset.

Dale said:
Alex Ambleton won with Evening Sunrise.
Frankie Flanton won with Morning Sunset.
Sam Spinton won with Midday Night.

However, none of the statements were fully true.

In fact, just six of the statements were exactly half true (i.e. either the person won, or the horse did), the rest were false.

Can you determine who won and which horse they were showing?

## Puzzle 8

My local library decided to hand out some of its old books to the 1,400 people who lived in the town.

To each library member, they offered 6 books, and to each non-member, they offered 4 books.

If only half of the members, and three-quarters of the non-members, accepted the books, how many books were given away?
