Play of the Day
Race Date April 30, 2021
Track Churchill Downs
Race 9
Overview A deep renewal of the G2 Eight Belles, with plenty of speed, and a potentially vulnerable favorite (#10 Dayoutoftheoffice) who hasn’t been out since November.
Pace It looks extremely fast, as several want to be involved early, which could tilt this to a stalker/closer.
Trends The main track has been VERY speedy during the week, regardless of the surface condition, and it’s been very tough to pass, so make sure to keep that in mind, especially since it could be souped up and fast and speedy on a big race day.
Number 7
Morning Line (10-1)
Best Bet Overview #7 OBLIGATORY (10-1): Lightly raced filly endured a tough trip at FG behind two stars and now cuts back to one-turn, has the speed to be in midpack, and should be primed off the far turn when the early pace begins to take its toll.
Picks & Plays WPS bet and a must-use in all horizontal exotics.
