PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau                   
Date  5/23/24 
Featured track  Churchill Downs 
Race number  1 
Race overview  A competitive 50k N2L for 3upfm going 1-mile on the main track. 
Pace  There’s not a lot here, and these one-turn mile races can get strung out a bit, so they usually play to speed, as it’s tough to make up ground when you get to the far turn. 
Trends  The main track seemed to play a bit forward last week, though nothing too out of the ordinary. 
Best Play  #3 MITOLE’S LEGACY (4-1): Pace player should be on or just off the early lead, which will flatter her chances, for a Bush barn that has a win off the claim, and that 2nd last time was a solid first start against winners as well. 
Bet Types    Aggressive WP bet and single to kick off the early Pk5 as well. 
Play of the Day Winners  CD POD: 11-2-2-1 ($1.61/$4.43)
