PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau                   
Date  6/19/24 
Featured track  Churchill Downs 
Race number  1 
Race overview  A modest 10k MCL for 3up going 1 1/16 miles on the main track. 
Pace  There’s very little here, which means tactical speed is a big asset. 
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  #6 AMERICAN RAIDER (7-2): Stalker was just a good 2nd going 1 1/8 miles, in what was a very fast race for this level, and this post, coupled with his tactical speed, should put him in the perfect spot off the far turn. 
Bet Types    Aggressive WP bet and single to kick off the Early Pk5 as well. 
Play of the Day Winners  CD POD: 25-7-3-4 ($1.94/$5.05)
