Bettor's Edge

By Jeremy Plonk

Handicappers appreciate his change-of-style victory in the Santa Anita Derby, something lightly raced horses often are unable to do. That win over Game Winner earns class plaudits, but it’s a difficult read on time based on a slower main track at Santa Anita this year. Roadster could be the Derby favorite, but will be a lukewarm one if that. For all his successes, Bob Baffert’s only horse to win both the Santa Anita Derby and Kentucky Derby was Justify a year ago. Unbeaten in both starts this year, something that’s been a hallmark of the last 6 Kentucky Derby winners. 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 Santa Anita Derby has catapulted 18 eventual winners of the Kentucky Derby, 3 in the last 7 years (I’ll Have Another, California Chrome, Justify). Bob Baffert’s 5 Kentucky Derby wins are just 1 off the all-time record set by Ben Jones from 1938-’52. Jockey Mike Smith jumped off to ride Arkansas Derby winner Improbable, so Baffert turns to Florent Geroux, making his fourth Derby appearance (third-place finish on Gun Runner in ’16).
