Bettors’ Edge

By Jeremy Plonk

Lone Sailor: Five straight Preakness editions have seen a horse rally from last in the field to finish second or third, including 31-1 Senior Investment in the show spot a year ago. That’s good news for this deep closer who figures to get plenty of pace to run into if trainer Tom Amoss elects to run. But he’s lost 7 straight and hasn’t registered a stakes victory in 6 tries, so the middle jewel of the Triple Crown would be an unabashed success if he could merely light the board. He had a clear rail run for the most part in Louisville with little excuse, but ran on well enough to gain some measure of respect. His pedigree leans shorter – even if he’s a deep closer – so this 1-3/16 miles distance in Baltimore would suit him better than the Belmont Stakes. If he’s to get some classics black-type, May 19 rates his best chance. Consider for exactas and trifectas.
