Bettor's Edge

By Jeremy Plonk

A good second in the Louisiana Derby from a tough post draw, Spinoff matches Tacitus as members of this crop with perhaps the most impressive pedigrees. He’s by Kentucky Derby runner-up Hard Spun and out of the super-sharp Zaftig, winner of the Acorn at 3. But that pedigree, and a light foundation, will be tested over 10 furlongs. Only 3 horses in the last century have won the Kentucky Derby with 4 or fewer career starts (Justify, Animal Kingdom and Big Brown). Only 3 Louisiana Derby alumni have won the Kentucky Derby, most recently Funny Cide in 2003. But the Louisiana Derby has put horses on the board in the Kentucky Derby in recent years like Revolutionary (also trained by Pletcher), Commanding Curve and Golden Soul. Trainer Todd Pletcher may be 2-for-52 in his Derby career, but he’s got a win (Always Dreaming) and third (Audible) in the past 2 years. Manny Franco takes the mount as John Velazquez opts to ride Code of Honor.
