Play of the Day
Race Date September 30, 2022
Track Churchill Downs
Race 2
Overview A decent 50k claimer for 3yos, though it looks like #5 BLUE KENTUCKY (5-1) has a distinctive class edge.
Pace There’s not a ton here, so expect a bunched field and a sprint at the end, which means tactical speed is a bonus.
Trends The main track really seemed to tilt towards stalker/closers over the weekend, which is worth keeping an eye on as they come back for another five-day race week.
Number 5
Morning Line (5-1)
Best Bet Overview #5 BLUE KENTUCKY (5-1): Class dropper and turf-to-dirt runner has been facing better, and his recent dirt races make him the one to beat, from a perfect outside attack post as well.
Picks & Plays WP bet at 3-1 or better while getting some added value by singling in the early Pk5, and to kick off the early Pk4 as well.
