PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau

Featured Track/Race:   Pimlico – Race 9 
Race overview:  A competitive renewal of the 100k Very One fir fillies & mares sprinting on the turf. 
Pace:  It looks supersonic, as there are several—including all the ML favorites—that want to fly early, which means something almost has to give late. 
Trends:  With the meet just four days in, and very few turf races run so far, it’s tough to get a true feel, though this is a course that can be a little more forgiving to stalker/closers. 
Best Play:  #5 THUNDERING CREED (6-1) (turf only): Stretch runner has two big turf figures in her last two on the turf, likely was pointed to this all along off the December layoff, and will love the hot and contested pace she’s going to be able to run into. 
Bet Types:    Aggressive WPS bet and get some real leverage on the rest of the betting public by singling in all the horizontal exotics.
