PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau                   
Date:  6/3/2023 
Featured Track/Race:   Churchill Downs – Race 10 
Race overview:  A solid renewal of the G3 Blame going 1 1/8 miles on the main for older handicap division runners. 
Pace:  There’s not much here, so expect a bunched group early and a sprint late. 
Trends:  The main track played a bit more on the fair side last week, as winners were coming from everywhere, though tactical speed (at the very least) is always preferred.  
Best Play:  #1 MASQUEPARADE (5-1): Router needed his comeback going a one-turn mile, will be closer early on the stretchout, and catches the favorite (#1 Rattle N Roll) on a quick turnaround. 
Bet Types:    Aggressive WP bet and single in the late Pk5/Pk4 as well.
