PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau                   
Date  6/20/24 
Featured track  Churchill Downs 
Race number  8 
Race overview  An extremely weak MSW for 3upfm going 7Fs on the main track. 
Pace  It’s a full field, with several first-time starters as well, so things should be honest, and potentially even hot and contested early. 
Trends  The main track sped up a bit last week, playing a bit more to speed types, but overall is 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  #7 ISLANDER (7-2): Gun Runner filly cost $1.5 million so there are expectations here for her debut, and she hasn’t missed a beat in the AM since late April, should love the 7Fs, and could not possibly find a better crew to run against at first asking. 
Bet Types    Aggressive WP bet and single to end the Lae Pk5/Pk4 as well. 
Play of the Day Winners  CD POD: 25-7-3-4 ($1.94/$5.05)
