Bettors’ Edge

By Jeremy Plonk

Blended Citizen: Excluded from the Kentucky Derby based on points, his springboard win in the Peter Pan Stakes sets him up for his first foray in the Triple Crown series. He has been a solid finisher over shorter trips, but now the mile and one-half will put that perceived stamina to the test. Blended Citizen didn’t have much shot in the Blue Grass behind a modest pace, but has sandwiched that loss with wins in the Jeff Ruby and Peter Pan – races on Polytrack and dirt, around 2 turns and 1. Versatility won’t be questioned with him. Trainer Doug O’Neill probably has a Belmont Stakes owed to him after Triple Crown hope I’ll Have Another was injured race week in 2012 with history on the line. This one is not impossible, and follows the same pattern as 2011 Belmont shocker Ruler On Ice in being excluded from the Derby, as well as Tonalist, who upended California Chrome’s 2014 Crown bid via the Peter Pan.
