“PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau


Featured track Churchill Downs

Race number 6


Race overview A deep and competitive 10k claimer going 1-mile on the main track.


Pace It looks a bit on the tepid side, as there’s not a lot of burners in here, though at this trip, things can still get heated up front.

Trends The main track was fair and consistent throughout Derby Week, regardless of the surface condition, so you should not be deterred from playing anyone with a contrasting running style.

Best Play #9 ALL WEST (4-1): Two-turn runner cuts back and goes off the Atras claim for a barn that is having a banner season, and has long had a penchant for moving up new horse’s form, which would make this one mighty tough to deny.

Bet Types Aggressive WP bet, and single in Late Pk5, and to kick off the late Pk4 as well.
