Featured Track/Race:   Churchill Downs – Race 4 
Race overview:  A compact 50k claimer for older sprinting 6Fs on the main. 
Pace:  There’s not much here, which means from a perfect outside attack post, #6 DIVINE LEADER (5-2) should be primed the entire way. 
Trends:  The main track had a speed/inside feel to it early on Derby Day but it evened out late for sure. And as a whole, it’s been fair throughout the meet, though speed and being forward is always preferred.  
Best Play:  #6 DIVINE LEADER (5-2): Expected pace presser ran huge against better two-back at Kee then held his own turf sprinting there last time, so on the move back to dirt he looks too tough for these. 
Bet Types:    Aggressive WP bet and single in the early Pk5/Pk4 as well. 
Meet/POD Stats:  CD Meet: 67-9-5-6 ($1.06/$3.86 ROI through 5/6)
