PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau                   
Date  6/22/24 
Featured track  Churchill Downs 
Race number  4 
Race overview  A solid 30k starter-allowance for 3upfm going 1-mile on the main. 
Pace  It looks hot and contested, with several who want to be involved early and often, which could/should tilt this to an off-the-pace type. 
Trends  The main track sped up a bit last week, playing a bit more to speed types, but overall is has been remarkably consistent all meet, with few, if any path biases, and all running styles having a fair go of it more often than not. 
Best Play  #5 WINDY BAY (3-1): Stalker will love all the pace she can settle off of, enters in fine form, and should appreciate the cutback to a one-turn mile after all the foundation from the two-turn races. 
Bet Types    Aggressive WP bet and single in the early Pk5/Pk4, and to kick off the middle Pk5 as well.
