Luck of the Livinhopes

Submitted By: geecee

Difficulty: medium

The Livinhopes - dad Tom, mum Millie, sons Dick and Harry, and daughter Sally - were enjoying their holiday on the
beautiful island of Trop Icana and their outing today was at the Happy Valley race-meeting where each placed a
different bet to win on the Golden Cup feature race, and their thoroughbreds - in no particular order: Abiella's Ace,
Rory's Gold, Beau Royale, Artie's Son, and Big Ben Chimes - were the first five to pass the winning post.

Unfortunately, the bookmakers paid out on the first three only. One of the family had bet on the basis of a possibly clairvoyant dream, another selected the horse that turned and gave a wink while strolling out to the gate. One of the family had simply bought a tip sheet and backed the recommendation du jour, and one had eavesdropped on a tip passed between a couple of stable insiders and bet accordingly. Finally, one of them simply bet on the red silks on the basis of it being a favourite colour.

From this information and the following clues, for each Livinhope, can you
determine which horse they backed, on which basis and the position in which the horse finished?
