Bettors’ Edge

By Jeremy Plonk

Firenze Fire: Blitzed in his only true long-distance road trip in last year’s Breeders’ Cup Juvenile at Del Mar, this early developing 2-year-old hasn’t advanced his cause at 3. Maybe that’s a stunt in progression; or maybe it’s tied to distance, which appears limited even if he’s not an early speed performer. Nonetheless, he’ll be one of the Kentucky Derby’s longest shots. You respect his durability with 9 starts, essentially in succession without a break in his form cycle since his debut last June.
