Important Update: With the defection of Omaha Beach, please edit your Pool A selection if you previously picked him. Pool A will now contain three horses, while Bodexpress will be added to Pool E. Feel free to edit your selections accordingly, up to five minutes before post time.

Important Update #2: Haikal is also out. The pools will remain unchanged, please edit your selection if you picked him!

It's that time of year again! The TBC Derby Pool Contest was originally founded by The Shadow, and the rules are simple:

1. Select one horse from each of the pools listed below.
2. Note your predicted margin of victory and final time, which will be used as tiebreakers
3. Feel free to edit selections up until five minutes before post time, but please do make a post noting any changes so that I don't miss them.
4. Points will be awarded if any of your choices finish in the top 6, on a scale of 30-20-15-10-5-1
5. Winner gets the title of Greatest Handicapper of All Time for exactly one year (so last year's winner, Insane Crazy, has another few days of bragging rights)
