Race Date May 14, 2022
Track Churchill Downs
Race 7
Overview A modest AOC with several unproven on the turf, which means #1 WALKATHON (3-1) should be mighty tough off a sharp turf debut.
Pace Things should be honest up front, as there a few stretch out sprinters who want to go early, along with a few routers too.
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 1
Morning Line (3-1)
Best Bet Overview #1 WALKATHON (3-1) (turf only): Taking on winners is never east but this filly’s MSW win—in her turf debut—was really sharp, she drew perfectly, and just doesn’t meet much on the rise.
Picks & Plays Aggressive WP bet and a must-use/potential single to kick off the late Pk5.
