Bettor's Edge

By Jeremy Plonk

A potential Kentucky Derby favorite, the wire-to-wire winner of the Xpressbet Florida Derby doesn’t appear to need the lead, but may assume that role in a Derby short on early heat. Maximum Security also could sit just off a front-runner such as Gray Magician. His final come-home splits at Gulfstream Park were historically impressive and absolutely stand out in this crop. That he debuted for a $16,000 maiden claiming tag in December seems a career ago now. Only 3 horses in the last century have won the Kentucky Derby with 4 or fewer career starts (Justify, Animal Kingdom and Big Brown). The Xpressbet Florida Derby has produced a record 24 winners of the Kentucky Derby, including Always Dreaming 2 years ago among 6 history-makers since just 2001. Unbeaten in 3 starts this year, something that’s been a hallmark of the last 6 Kentucky Derby winners. Trainer Jason Servis made his Derby debut last year (Firenze Fire, 11th) and looks to join his brother John (Smarty Jones, 2004) in the history books. Jockey Luis Saez’s best Derby finish was seventh in 6 prior mounts.
