PLAY of the DAY” by Brian Nadeau                   
Date:  11/12/2022 
Featured Track/Race:   Churchill Downs – Race 8 
Race overview:  A full field in the Claiming Crown sprint that is loaded with contenders—and early speed. 
Pace:  As hinted at, it looks suicidal, as countless runners want to mix it up early and often. 
Trends:  N/A – Note that this week we will finally have a full week of racing to measure the main track by, as it’s been too hit-or-miss so far, with the BC at Keeneland in the middle. 
Best Play:  #2 THE WOFLMAN (6-1): Versatile sort invades off three straight and has shown a stalking gear, so expect him to get run off his feet a bit—which will be perfect.  
Bet Types:    Aggressive WPS bet and a must-use in all the horizontal exotics.
