Bettors’ Edge

By Jeremy Plonk

Bravazo:All season the Preakness appeared to be his best chance to make a major splash, following in the footsteps of similarly bred and campaigned stable predecessor Oxbow. He nearly turned the trick with a late surge through the fog at Pimlico, but came up a half-length short. His pound-it-out tempo, however, may actually play better over the distance at Belmont. While nowhere near as brilliant as Justify, nor as strong a finisher as Hofburg, his steadiness each quarter of a mile marks the kind of style that wins this race many years. The last horse to win the Belmont after losing the Derby and Preakness was Victory Gallop in 1998, who stopped Bob Baffert’s bid for the Triple Crown when nosing out Real Quiet. Baffert just got his 14th Triple Crown win at Pimlico to tie D. Wayne Lukas’ all-time record. Don’t be shocked if Lukas protects his place in history with an upset.
