PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau

Featured Track/Race:   Churchill Downs – Race 7 
Race overview:  A relatively modest MSW with several firsters and two proven runners, #2 WILD THINKER (5-2) AND #5 Briterdayzahead (3-1) who look much the best. 
Pace:  It figures quick, as more than a few have shown speed, and there are several firsters as well. 
Trends:  With a few exceptions, the main track was very speedy last week when fast (it was an off-track Sunday), so leaning towards horses with tactical speed, at the very least, seems the play. 
Best Play:  #2 WILD THINKER (5-2): Improving runner caught two buzzsaws in his first two starts and meets no one like that here, plus he just beat his main rival #5 Briterdayzahead comfortably last time. 
Bet Types:    Aggressive WP bet and single in the late Pk5/Pk4 as well.
