BETTING OVERVIEW: There are a couple of reasons to consider Suddenbreakingnews at the betting window, none bigger than he's finished in the top two in seven of his eight races. He's also performed well on muddy tracks and posted a 108 Equibase Speed Figure that he earned while winning the Southwest. That number puts him among the top contenders and he also had a solid performance in his final prep for the Kentucky Derby, placing second behind Creator in the Arkansas Derby. Don't be surprised if Suddenbreakingnews emerges down the stretch to finish in the money after closing late.
