Blue wins a brilliant race. Out of 48 dice throws, he got 12 sixes. (Not bad!)

Green was a close second, just a square behind, with 10 sixes in 39 throws (even a higher average).

Purple was third with 9 sixes in 65 throws (below expected average).

Red had a disappointing performance. He had only 10 sixes in 78 throws (while he had 14 ones).

However, the poorest performance was Yellow's (3 sixes in 26 dice throws).

As for grey he was not neither briliant not too bad (2 sixes in 13 throws).

(*) You may have noticed that Yellow only advanced two squares (instead of three) in the third turn. That is a mistake on my part.
