Play of the Day
Race Date May 15, 2022
Track Churchill Downs
Race 7
Overview A strong AOC for 3yos on the turf with several different ways to go, though none seem to have the upside of #8 DOUBLE CATCH (7-2).
Pace There doesn’t appear to be much here, so tactical speed is at a premium, as a sprint off the far turn seems likely.
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 8
Morning Line (7-2)
Best Bet Overview #8 DOUBLE CLUTCH (7-2) (turf only): Backed up the 58-1 3rd on debut with a polished Kee MSW win, and while facing winners is never easy, this looks like a colt that could be going places, while only scratching the surface of his ability so far.
Picks & Plays Aggressive WP bet and a must-use/potential single in the late Pk5/Pk4 as well.
Stats CD Meet (POD): 6-2-1-1 ($3.40/$7.77 through 5/7) CD Meet (overall): 67-24-13-8 ($$2.14/$6.40 through 5/7)
