PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau                   
Date  10/1/2022 
Featured track  Churchill Downs   
Race number  7 
Race overview  A seemingly solid MSW for 2yos going 1-mile on the main. 
Pace  It should be honest, as there are a few first-time starters from ace connections that figure to show speed, and some experienced runners who will as well. 
Trends  The main track really seemed to tilt towards stalker/closers over the weekend, which is worth keeping an eye on as they come back for another five-day race week.  
Best Play  #5 STRONGHOLD (4-1): Impressive runner was 2nd on debut in a fast race for the level while finishing 10 lengths clear of 3rd, has a big experience edge on the firsters, and should love the added ground he gets here. 
Bet Types    Aggressive WP bet at 2-1 or better, while getting some built-in value by singling in the middle Pk4, late Pk5, and to kick off the late Pk4 as well.
