Bettors’ Edge

By Jeremy Plonk

Quip: Trainer Rodolphe Brisset makes his Triple Crown series debut with the Tampa Bay Derby winner and Arkansas Derby runner-up, just 13 months after going out on his own last April. Apprenticed under Hall of Famer Bill Mott for six years, he’s not cut from a Derby Fever-type outfit, so when his owner WinStar Farm opted to bypass the Kentucky Derby for the Preakness, it likely wasn’t the end of the world for Brisset. He’s prepared him squarely for this race and now will take on WinStar barnmate Justify. Horses who excelled in Arkansas have done big things in the Preakness over the past decade and a half, so take him seriously as a major exotics threat and an upset candidate if Justify regresses off his best.
