PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau                   
Date  9/30/2022 
Featured track  Churchill Downs   
Race number  3 
Race overview  A strong 50k claimer for 3up going 1 1/16 miles on the main track. 
Pace  It doesn’t look overly heated, as there’s not a lot of true confirmed speed, so tactical speed, at the very least, should be preferred.  
Trends  The main track really seemed to tilt towards stalker/closers over the weekend, which is worth keeping an eye on as they come back for another five-day race week.  
Best Play  #3 ROYAL ACT (4-1): Class dropper has been freshened since wintering at Oaklawn by Diodoro, who has been hot to start the meet, and anything close to this 6yo’s best beats these. 
Bet Types    Aggressive WP bet at 2-1 or better, while getting some built-in value by singling in the early Pk5/Pk4 as well. 
Play of the Day Winners  CD POD (through 9/27): 10-1-2-1 ($0.57/$3.52) 

CD Overall (through 9/27): 96-21-15-17 ($1.35/$4.57)
