Triple Crown Suggested League Guidelines and Draft Board

First, here's our suggested league guidelines: utilize a system with 4 owners, drafting 3 rounds in a standard serpentine fashion. In each race, points are allocated as follows: 15 points for win, 10 points for show and 5 points for place. Additionally, a horse gains an additional 5 points for winning a second Triple Crown race and an additional 10 points for winning the Triple Crown. If a tiebreaker is needed, it will go by tallying the best collective finishes by all horses in all races.

Courtesy of the Daily Racing Form, here are the past performance charts.

With the last-minute dropout of I Want Revenge because of leg issues, everything is thrown into flux. But on a supremely muddy track at Churchill Downs, you have to like Friesan Fire's aptitude in that regard.

Now, here's our draft board:

1 Friesan Fire
2 Dunkirk
3 Pioneerof the Nile
4 Papa Clem
5 Desert Party
6 Chocolate Candy
7 Hold Me Back
8 Regal Ransom
9 Mr. Hot Stuff
10 Flying Private
11 Mine That Bird
12 Musket Man
