PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau                   
Date:  5/4/2023 
Featured Track/Race:   Churchill Downs – Race 7 
Race overview:  A deep 50k MCL with more than a few possibilities, though none have the upside of MSW dropper #8 KIKI KRAZY (7-2) 
Pace:  It’s a full field, so it should be hot and contested, which means a rating gear is preferred. 
Trends:  It’s still early in the meet, but the main track has tilted towards off-the-pace types, as speed has struggled to hold, for the most part. 
Best Play:  #8 KIKI KRAZY (7-2): MSW dropper has had three chances against tons better with middling form, so this makes sense, and it’s not by coincidence it happens Derby Week either. 
Bet Types:    Aggressive WP bet, while getting adding value by singling in the middle Pk5/Pk4, and to kick off the late Pk5 as well. 
Meet/POD Stats:  CD Meet: 10-4-1-2 ($1.87/$5.28 ROI through 5/1) 

CD POD: 1-0-1-0 (X ROI through 5/1)
