Featured Track/Race:   Churchill Downs – Race 10 
Race overview:  As good a renewal of the G2 Edgewood for 3yo fillies going 1 1/16 miles on the turf as you’ll ever see, as there are upwards of 10 potential winners in the field-of-11, which means taking a stand gives you a huge leg up on the rest of the betting public. 
Pace:  There’s not much here, so they’ll be bunched early and sprint off the far turn, where acceleration and racing luck will both come into play. 
Trends:  They just haven’t run enough races over the new turf to get a true feel, though it undoubtedly should be a fairer course than the speedier ones in Florida and California. 
Best Play:  #5 PRELIMINARY (5-1): Awesome debut winner broke a three-year GP winless streak with firsters on turf for Brown and she did it in breathtaking fashion too, so while this is a big class rise, her upside is unlimited, her turn of foot was devastating, and she gives the feel of a filly who is just getting started. 
Bet Types:    Aggressive WPS bet, while getting adding value by singling in all the expansive horizontal exotics as well.
