Play of the Day
Race Date May 13, 2022
Track Churchill Downs
Race 7
Overview A big field of MSW runners on the turf, though no one has the upside of #7 MCGOLDEN (7-2), who has run just twice and is on the improve.
Pace There’s not much signed on here, so expect a compact field and a sprint to the line.
Trends With so few turf races run on the new course it’s a bit tough to gauge, though the middle paths down the crown of the course did seem best over the weekend.
Number 7
Morning Line (7-2)
Best Bet Overview #7 MCGOLDEN (7-2) (turf only): Walsh charge goes for a hot barn and has plenty of upside off just two starts, which is more than most here can say, and that big move forward last time says another is in the cards, which would be too much for these.
Picks & Plays Aggressive WP bet and a must-use/potential single in the late Pk5/Pk4 as well.
