Bettors’ Edge

By Jeremy Plonk

Sporting Chance: Last year’s Grade 1 Hopeful winner has lost 4 straight since the summer at Saratoga, and much of his undoing has been self-inflicted. Sporting Chance has a bad habit of ducking out and getting into trouble, so watch where he’s drawn and don’t take your eyes off of him for a second during the running of the Preakness. His Blue Grass effort behind Good Magic was underscored positively in the Kentucky Derby result, and his fourth-place rally in the 1-turn Pat Day Mile on the Derby undercard gets him here with less wear on the tires. But the Pat Day Mile was won by a complete stunner and done so in a time that was slower than 3-year-old maidens went later on the same program.
