Play of the Day
Race Date May 22, 2022
Track Churchill Downs
Race 9
Overview A wide, wide open 75k MCL’er with several who come out of the MSW ranks.
Pace There looks to be plenty here, as several have shown speed in the past, so expect a contested pace.
Trends The main track tilted towards speed over the past week, though nothing too out of the norm.
Number 5
Morning Line (5-1)
Best Bet Overview #5 SMARTY JOHN (5-1): Foley claim actually rises in class, which is a confident sign, especially since several here are dropping from the MSW ranks, and this is not a barn that claims many (2-9), which is another added appeal.
Picks & Plays WPS bet and a must-use/potential bold single to end the late Pk5/Pk4 as well.
