Featured Track/Race:   Churchill Downs – Race 8 
Race overview:  A pretty modest 50k claimer for the level, with several who enter with suspect form, which is not a worry for #2 HONEY RUN (5-2). 
Pace:  There looks to be more than enough here, as several want to be involved early, which means no one should be able to clear. 
Trends:  Winners are continuing to come from everywhere, with no noticeable biases, both in terms of path and running style. 
Best Play:  #2 HONEY RUN (5-2): Dominant winner at the level wheels right back for the potent Hartman-Murrill team (28%), while seemingly looking to strike while the iron is hot for a big purse. 
Bet Types:    Aggressive WP bet and single in the middle Pk5/Pk4, and to kick off the late Pk5 as well.
