Bettor's Edge

By Jeremy Plonk

A devout closer among this year’s sophomore class, he’s been second in the Risen Star, fourth in the Louisiana Derby and third in the Arkansas Derby all while shipping out of his Florida base. He’s done enough to make the Kentucky Derby, but not enough to keep his jockey. Riders Luis Saez (Maximum Security) and Joel Rosario (Game Winner) have found more confidence in others. The Arkansas Derby has produced 6 Kentucky Derby winners in its history, but never from a horse who did not finish first or second at Oaklawn. Trainer Bill Mott, despite more than 700 wins at Churchill Downs (#2 there all-time), has never finished better than seventh in 8 Kentucky Derby attempts.
