BETTING OVERVIEW: One of the biggest reasons not to sleep on Tom's Ready is Stewart, who has trained three different runner-ups in Triple Crown races over the last three seasons. Under Stewart's watch, Golden Soul placed second in the 2013 Kentucky Derby while Commanding Curve took second in 2014 Kentucky Derby and Tale of Verve was a runner-up in the 2015 Preakness. A true sleeper because of his ability to close late, as long as Tom Ready can sift through the traffic on Saturday he could be an option for exacta and trifecta bettors.
