For the breeding tie-breaker I'll take the mating of Bill and Ellie.
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

The older I get, the more I feel like picking horses in the Derby is like picking the favorites of my 20 children. There isn't a single horse this year I'd be disappointed with in a win. They're all really, really nice horses and I like something about each one of them. I'm going to leave out all of the Todd Squad and probably regret it (Vino Rosso looks an absolute picture in his gallops)

Pool B

Pool C
My Boy Jack

Pool D
Free Drop Billy

Pool E
Bravazo

Margin: half length

Not a wholesome trottin' race, no, but a race where they sit down right on the horse!
