PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadea u                   
Date:  9/27/2023 
Featured Track/Race:   Churchill Downs – Race 5 
Race overview:  A predictably deep and competitive 10k starter-allowance for 3up going 1 1/16 miles on the main. 
Pace:  It looks hot and contested, as there are several here who want to be involved early and often, which says this could fall apart late. 
Trends:  The main track has predominantly fair for the meet, though over the weekend it did tilt slightly towards off-the-pace runners. 
Best Play:  #4 Tiger Moon (3-1): Del Park invader stalked and aired for fun in his return and has several races that win this, and the flow of the race should be ideal, as he can sit early and pounce late. 
Bet Types:    Aggressive WP bet and single to end the early Pk5/Pk4, in the middle Pk4, and to kick off the late Pk5 as well.
