Featured Track/Race:   Churchill Downs – Race 11 
Race overview:  A solid field for the G3 Cardinal going 1 1/8 miles on the turf, with G1 winner #5 Dalika (2-1) leading the way over several graded stakes quality runners. 
Pace:  It looks hot and contested between the two favorites, as both #5 Dalika (2-1) and #6 Adventuring (9-5) want to be involved early and often, and could tangle, being drawn next to each other. 
Trends:  N/A 
Best Play:  #7 SUNNY ONE (8-1) (turf only): Stalker/closer has run well of late, with fast figures too, and wasn’t far behind Dalika at KD, and today she’ll get a much better pace scenario to rally into. 
Bet Types:    WPS bet and a must-use in the late Pk5/Pk4 as well.
