CHURCHILL DOWNS – SETH MERROW

RACE 1 RACE 2 RACE 3 RACE 4 RACE 5 RACE 6 RACE 7 RACE 8 RACE 9
5-4-2-6 3-1-6-7 3-6-2-6 2-6-7-3 6-5-4-3 8-12-10-7 4-9-8-7 8-6-1-2 8-2-10-4
    2-7-8-5     5-7-14-1   16-15-3-13  

Play of the Day: R4 exacta box … 2-6-7-3 … Sure, #2Ntestinalfortitude looks to be the one to beat at 4-5 on the ML. But with only the one start it’s hard to know if he’ll fire another one like we saw in the debut. He’ll take plenty of money – lending value to our other options. Perhaps back up keying the 2 over 3-6-7 — but we’re mainly looking to upset with our others.

 

    GULFSTREAM PARK – DICK POWELL

RACE 1 RACE 2 RACE 3 RACE 4 RACE 5 RACE 6 RACE 7 RACE 8 RACE 9
4-5-1 2-7-4 5-2-8 4-3-8 5-8-3 1-2-9 8-3-2 10-3-1 7-4-11

Play of the Day: Race 1 #4 drops down to maiden claimers and stretches out in distance while drawing well.

  

 SANTA ANITA – SCOTT BENJAMIN

RACE 1 RACE 2 RACE 3 RACE 4 RACE 5 RACE 6 RACE 7 RACE 8
3-2-6 6-3-5 5-6-3 5-2-4 4-3-13 2-6-9 2-5-3 4-2-9
7-5-1   11-4-1     14-9-8   4-1-9

Play of the Day: 5 in 3rd. This field lacks a true pacesetter and I’m hoping he goes to the lead. He was up on the pace through a 45 second half down the hill and while I realize that isn’t fast for the hill it is still a full second faster than they will likely be going today. Hopefully he gets the lead and gets brave..
 

BELMONT – MATT GRAVES

RACE 1 RACE 2 RACE 3 RACE 4 RACE 5 RACE 6 RACE 7 RACE 8 RACE 9
6-7-4-5 3-2-4-5 7-5-1a-3 2-5-8-9 5-3-2-6 3-11-10-12 4-2-3-6 2-11-10-9 7-6-1-2
  1-7-4 5-1e-8     6-1-9   9-8-3 14-13-12

Play of the Day: Race 2: #3 Wakeela is a Grade 1 turfer facing softer here for Chad, looks like a confidence building spot for stakes return later.
