PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau                   
Date  6/29/24 
Featured track  Churchill Downs 
Race number  9 
Race overview  A relatively modest renewal of the 250k American Derby for 3yos going 1 1/16 miles on the turf. 
Pace  There’s really none here at all, and the best horse – #1 GREEN LIGHT (3-1) – has a hint of it, so expect him to be sent along. 
Trends  N/A 
Best Play  #1 GREEN LIGHT (3-1) (turf only): Expected Lone F dazzled in his MSW win, and while this is a big rise in class, he looked like a superstar winning by 10 ½ lengths, meets a meek field, and has a decided flow edge here as well. 
Bet Types    You may not see a worse ML all year, but even in the 8-5 range he’s playable in the win pool, though the real value comes in the horizontal exotics, where he can be singled in all pools/
