Will Drosselmeyer Step Forward?

  • Who: Thoroughbreds – Drosselmeyer, Crider
  • What: Horse Racing Betting Tips – The Dwyer, The Lone Star Derby
  • Where: Belmont Park, Lone Star Park
  • When: Saturday, May 8th

Drosselmeyer got his fair share of press on the Kentucky Derby trail, but was unable to crack the Derby lineup due to insufficient graded earnings. He’ll go favored in The Dwyer on Saturday at Belmont Park, and a winning effort could make him a serious player in The Belmont Stakes. Let’s take a look at The Dwyer, and a brief glance at The Lone Star Derby as well.
There’s a good chance of an off track at Belmont Park on Saturday, and Drosselmeyer has already shown that he can handle a track with some moisture in it, having broken his maiden by six lengths at Churchill Downs on a track labeled “good”. His Beyer Speed Figures have been inching upward in three starts as a 3YO, and another forward move seems likely, given his relatively light 116-pound impost. There’s very little pace in this race, but Drosselmeyer demonstrated in his maiden breaker that he can be effective from close range. I’ll bet him to get over the hump with a win at odds of 3-2 or better. Soaring Empire’s Florida Derby was a toss out…I’m expecting him to rebound and hit the board at a square price of 9-2 or higher.
The Lone Star Derby is unlikely to produce a Belmont Stakes participant, but if one does emerge, it’s likely to be the Bob Baffert trainee Game On Dude. By Awesome Again out of a Devil His Due mare, this lightly-raced gelding should handle the 1 ½-mile distance of The Belmont Stakes. As for Saturday, Game On Dude figures to get a hot pace up front, which should set up his late run. His Derby Trial wasn’t much, but he may not have cared for the muddy track, and note the addition of blinkers for this engagement. The Baffert/Garcia combo has been quite potent on the West Coast, so perhaps they can work their magic with “The Dude”. Crider should get up for a share in what appears to be a chalky affair.
Those are my horse racing betting tips for the weekend. Best of luck and happy gambling.
