Bettors’ Edge

By Jeremy Plonk

Promises Fulfilled: Trainer Dale Romans has won more races at Churchill Downs than any conditioner in history, and the Louisville native was born with Derby Fever. That’s why when Promises Fulfilled cooked himself in a Florida Derby speed duel, Romans didn’t flinch to march onward to the Kentucky Derby. The Fountain of Youth front-end heist came after a dawdling opening half-mile, and that’s simply not likely to happen here. No horse has won the Derby after a final prep worse than 5th since Stone Street in 1908, a cheap claimer who was 12th before an about-face in the slowest Derby ever.
