PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau                   
Date  6/5/24 
Featured track  Churchill Downs 
Race number  3 
Race overview  A modest 30k MCL for 3up going 6Fs on the main track. 
Pace  There appears to be enough inside speed to set this up for a stalker, especially since it could catch up the ML favorite, #2 Air Force Cruising (5-2) in the process. 
Trends  The main track 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  #8 GRAND SAM (7-2): Hartman charge ran well enough on debut for a barn that doesn’t always have them cranked, now drops, can settle off the pace, and meets a field there for the taking.  
Bet Types    Aggressive WP bet and single in the early Pk5/Pk4 as well. 
Play of the Day Winners  CD POD: 20-4-3-4 ($1.64/$4.65)
