Breeder: Juvenal Diaz (Fla.)
Sire: Half Ours
Dam: Lady of Sun, by Gentlemen
Gentlemen's Bet won five of his first six starts and earned his first career stakes win in the Iowa Sprint Handicap at Prairie Meadows. He then was challenged in graded stakes competition and handled himself capably, finishing third in the Grade 1 Alfred G. Vanderbilt Handicap and fourth in the Grade 3 Phoenix Stakes to set him up for the 2013 Breeders' Cup Sprint, where he finished third.
Gentlemen's Bet did not race in 2014 but in 2015 won the Hot Springs Stakes to kick off his season. He finished fourth and fifth in a pair of graded stakes in the spring before taking the summer off, returning with a fifth-place finish in the Grade 3 Phoenix Stakes at Keeneland ahead of a possible run in the 2015 Breeders' Cup Sprint.
From the first crop of sprinter Half Ours, Gentlemen's Bet is from the family of Grade 1 winner and sire Consolidator.
