Preakness gambling will have that, and more, as Mine That Bird will headline Preakness betting as the Kentucky Derby winner. But there will be additional Preakness gambling drama, Big Drama in fact, as the horse has been confirmed for Preakness betting action for the May 16 race from Pimlico race track in Baltimore.
Big Drama was confirmed by trainer David Fawkes as a Preakness gambling shooter. Big Drama’s claim to fame for Preakness gambling action is that he was the Delta Jackpot winner. He’ll be arriving this week at Pimlico for Preakness gambling training from South Florida.
Fawkes projected a most optimistic tone for Preakness gambling and said that Big Drama is “ready to roll”. Fawkes maintained that Big Drama should actually be undefeated heading into Preakness gambling but that rider error cost him that perfect mark.
Fawkes says that Big Drama is the type of horse that run from anywhere and can fly if asked too. Big Drama should be mounted for Preakness gambling by Eibar Coa and is owned by Harold L. Queen. Big Drama’s last race was on March 28 when he finished second in the Swale S. (grade II) from Gulfstream Park at Hallandale, FL.
Big Drama was the original winner, one half of a length ahead of This Ones for Phil, but was disqualified, making for additional “big drama”. The stewards ruled that Big Drama was disqualified for interference in the stretch run and bumping This Ones for Phil twice.
The decision also ended a five race winning streak for Big Drama and also ruined his 3-year old seasonal debut. It was Big Drama’s first race after fracturing a leg bone in a January stall accident, which required surgery. The Swale S. run would have been a track record had there not been disqualification.
Prior to the Swale S. Big Drama had wins in Boyd Gaming’s Delta Jackpot S. (grade III) on December 5 and the Florida Stallion in Reality S. on October 18.
