Published: May 12, 2016 08:39 am EDT

Who would harness racing's sharpest minds select in the 2016 Trot Magazine Fantasy Stable? Trot Insider will feature 'expert picks' in advance of the May 20 deadline.

Announcer for the Woodbine Entertainment Group's Standardbred tracks, Ken Middleton has offered his picks for the 2016 Fantasy Stable. Middleton offered up his rationale for selecting pacing mare Sandbetweenurtoes in the very evenly-matched Group H.

"One of the toughest categories in the Fantasy Stable was Group H, and I decided to zero in on Sandbetweenurtoes. She was a big player last season after enduring a mini slump in the middle of the season. I really admire her versatility, her overall talent and her ability to race well on any size track."

Group D:
