Bettors’ Edge

By Jeremy Plonk

Runaway Ghost: The Sunland Derby winner caught some breaks as top-class trainers sent third-tier contenders to New Mexico this year, and local rival Reride was rerouted to the UAE Derby, where he was a distant third to Mendelssohn. That’s the most recent measuring stick we have for this class riser who was lambasted 36 lengths when last in the Grade 1 Los Alamitos Futurity. Derby successes via Sunland include Mine That Bird and Firing Line, and it’s a reach at this point to think he’s capable of the former’s shocker and even in the same zip code as the latter.
