PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau                   
Date:  6/01/2023 
Featured Track/Race:   Churchill Downs – Race 7 
Race overview:  A stakes-caliber AOC sprinting on the main, with several who start with winning credentials. 
Pace:  There’s no confirmed front runners enters, so expect a bunched group, which gives those with tactical speed a big edge. 
Trends:  The main track played a bit more on the fair side last week, as winners were coming from everywhere, though tactical speed (at the very least) is always preferred.  
Best Play:  #2 BAGBOSS (3-1): Lightly-raced runner had a bit of a trip in his return last time when in a restricted stakes behind a CD legend, should be much tighter second-off the long layoff, and goes for a Walsh barn that can do no wrong in Louisville. 
Bet Types:    Aggressive WP bet and single in the late Pk5/Pk4 as well.
