PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau                   
Date:  9/7/2023 
Featured Track/Race:   Kentucky Downs – Race 7 
Race overview:  A seemingly iffy MSW for f/m’s going a marathon 1 5/16ths miles. 
Pace:  Expect a crawl early and a sprint late, as this looks like a trip that will stretch a lot of rubber bands mighty thin. 
Trends:  N/A 
Best Play:  #4 Lady Claypoole (3-1): Irish-bred ran well in her U.S. debut and first for Maker at Colonial when 3rd, now gets Lasix and blinkers, is bred to love the trip, and goes second-off the break for a barn that always points to this meet—which means this was the spot they had in mind all along. 
Bet Types:    Aggressive WP bet and single in in the middle Pk4, late Pk5, and to kick off the late Pk4 as well. 
POD/Meet Stats:  Sar Meet Overall (through 8/27): 344-83-71-56 ($1.71/$5.17) 

Sar POD (through 8/27): 28-5-6-4 ($1.78/$4.86)
