PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau                   
Date:  9/16/2023 
Featured Track/Race:   Churchill Downs – Race 5 
Race overview:  A middling 75k N2L for 3up going 7Fs on the main track. 
Pace:  There’s very little here to keep #1 QUICK HAMMER (3-1) from making the front and controlling the early tempo. 
Trends:  N/A 
Best Play:  #1 Quick Hammer (3-1): Expected Lone F couldn’t make a dent against allowance runners at Ellis but meets some friends here, many of which are dead one-run closers, which gives him a huge tactical edge. 
Bet Types:    Aggressive WP bet and single to end the early Pk5/Pk4, and in the middle Pk5, and to kick off the middle Pk4 as well.
