Bettor's Edge

By Jeremy Plonk

The Gotham winner got in great race shape to capitalize, and then came with a modest run when third in the Wood Memorial. There’s still question how far he wants to go. It’s been since 2003 that a Wood Memorial alumnus has landed in the Kentucky Derby trifecta. That year Funny Cide and Empire Maker ran 1-2. Trainer Kiaran McLaughlin was second in his Derby debut in 2005 with longshot Closing Argument and since has added a trio of fourth-place finishes. Rajiv Maragh rides his sixth Derby with only a 2011 third aboard Mucho Macho Man to show for it so far.
