Who would harness racing's sharpest minds select in the 2020 Trot Magazine Fantasy Stable? Trot Insider will feature 'expert picks' in advance of the deadline for this year's contest.

Announcer for Woodbine Mohawk Park, Ken Middleton has once again offered his picks for the 2020 Fantasy Stable. Middleton has targeted 2019 Battle of Lake Erie winner None Bettor A from a deep group of competitors featured in Group F.

"He was a very steady performer when he made the move to North America last season, and what I loved about him was his versatility. He could race any way and track size didn't seem to matter. He butted heads with the top dogs on occasion last year and put away some serious dough. I think he has the speed and skill be a dangerous horse in the heavyweight division in 2020."

None Bettor A (Bettors Delight - Limerick Star) made 18 starts as a six-year-old in his first season of racing in North America. As a six-year-old, he only missed the board on one occasion by virtue of a 12-2-3 record with a mark of 1:48.4 taken at The Meadowlands. He was never more than two lengths off the leader in races he didn't win, posting earnings of $375,970 in 2019. He won his first start of 2020 for trainer Andrew Harris in March at The Meadowlands against Preferred company.
