PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau                   
Date  6/27/24 
Featured track  Churchill Downs 
Race number  8 
Race overview  A full field of bottom-level 3upfm 10k MCLs going 7Fs on the main.  
Pace  It’s a field of 12, several of which are lightly-raced and/or firsters, so things should be honest up front. 
Trends  The main track 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  #11 TALAVERA (8-1): Class dropper likely needed her last, which came off an 11-month layoff and a barn switch, and she showed a lot of speed going longer as well, so with all that behind her, on the cutback, wit blinkers-off, she may be primed. 
Bet Types    WPS bet and a must-use or aggressive single to end the late Pk5/Pk4 as well. 
Play of the Day Winners  CD POD: 30-9-3-6 ($2.68/$6.28)
