I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

Faversham will be my sentimental pick but Heck Yeah has looked exceptional so far (for a Cal-bred).
I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.

I agree that it would be cool to see 'Chrome's little bro do well, but I'm pulling for Heck Yeah. He's by Acclamation, probably the late, great Unusual Heat's best son. And I really want to see him excel as a stallion, although it won't be easy filling his sire's shoes..

Two turns is the big question mark for most in here, so I'm looking for a horse that I'm confident will still be running at the end.
