2017 TBC Breeders' Cup Pool Contest

Postby Insane Crazy » Mon Oct 30, 2017 11:06 pm

Welcome back, folks, to the Third Annual TBC Breeders' Cup Pool Contest! This has been so much fun in years past, so I hope you'll join us again for 2017's rendition!

Make your picks and see who will be this year'schampion. The winner gets bragging rights and will be required compete in a cage match with the 2017 Derby Pool Contest winner. Start warming up now!

Rules:
1. From EACH BC race field, pick a horse from every available pool. All races have three except the Sprint, which only has two.
2. Points will be awarded per horse in each pool for performances to fifth place, with a point distribution of 25-15-10-5-1.
3. As a tie breaker, include your estimated time (to the 1/100th of a second) and margin of victory for the Breeders Cup Classic. E.g., 2 lengths, 2:01.16
4. You can change your selections for each race until the post time for said race. There will be no substitutions for scratches unless you do it yourself. If an AE enters the field after the scratch, we will swap 'em out.
5. As always, feel free to include commentary or analysis on your choices!

Post below will include the pools. The illustrious Tessablue and I will sort out winners later in the weekend once all of the races have been run. Happy picking!
Not a wholesome trottin' race, no, but a race where they sit down right on the horse!
Like to see some stuck-up jockey boy sittin' on Dan Patch? Make your blood boil? Well, I should say!

Is there a pool for finishing last in the contest? :oops: I'll try to put together some contenders in a day or so. (Contenders to put me last. . . I hope not!)
I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.
