Bettor's Edge

By Jeremy Plonk

Well-backed at 5-1 in the Preakness, a blinkers-on experiment backfired on trainer Mark Hennig as Bourbon War went quicker than normal early and was without his customary finishing kick. Hennig will remove the blinkers for the Belmont Stakes in hopes of getting the Xpressbet Florida Derby fourth-place finisher back on track. He’ll also team with Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith, a 3-time winner of this race aboard Drosselmeyer, Palace Malice and last year with Triple Crown champ Justify. Bourbon War is 0-for-4 in stakes races and has missed the trifecta in 3 of those, but his Florida Derby form was flattered in Louisville given the performances of Maximum Security and Code of Honor. Sire Tapit has been responsible for 3 Belmont winners in recent years and also has Tacitus and Intrepid Heart in this year’s race.
