PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau                   
Date  5/3/24 
Featured track  Churchill Downs   
Race number  11 
Race overview  A deep and contentious renewal of the G1 Kentucky Oaks for 3yo fillies going 1 1/8 miles on the main track. 
Pace  It looks potentially hot and contested, and at tis demanding trip, with a long stretch, this will likely stretch the rubber band of several of these mighty thin, and play more towards a stalker with stamina. 
Trends  It was just a few days early in the week, but the main track played fair, which is noteworthy, as it can tend to be very fast and potentially speed-favoring as Derby Week, and especially Friday and Saturday, draw in. 
Best Play  #5 THORPEDO ANNA (5-1): Stalker was awesome winning her seasonal bow in the G2 Fantasy at OP, while running as fast as most of these with a recency edge, and with her running style, off that return, she looks poised to dominate this group. 
Bet Types    Aggressive WP bet, strong EX over #13, and single in ALL horizontal exotics as well.
