Churchill Downs Race 6 for Saturday, June 24, 2017
Handicapped by The Turf Club Analysts
Churchill Downs - Race #6 - Post: 3:15pm - Maiden Special - 5.0 furlongs on the Turf. Purse: $53,300 Class Rating: 82
#10 STETSON GOLD (ML=4/1)
STETSON GOLD - The jockey and handler combination have a favorable return on investment when they join forces. This filly has been posting some excellent workout times. In her maiden race, this horse was clobbered badly. She should improve in the race today. Expect better today as this filly gets Lasix for the second time.
Vulnerable Contenders: #3 SWEET INVENTION (ML=2/1), #5 ZIPPERINI (ML=3/1), #7 DISTORTRESS (ML=4/1),
SWEET INVENTION - Tough to put your cash on this oft beaten chalk. Not much value. This questionable contender has been a disappointment to the horseplayers as the favorite time and time again. This filly recorded a speed fig in her last race which likely isn't good enough in today's event. ZIPPERINI - I can't play this perpetual non-winner. Gets the assignment executed once in a while. DISTORTRESS - When examining today's class rating, she will have to earn a better speed rating than in the last race to battle in this turf sprint.
GUEST COMMENTARY: Hal - STETSON GOLD - This filly is coming off a race on Aug 26th where she received some betting action. Should be live again today.
Putting our cash on #10 STETSON GOLD to win. Have to have odds of at least 1/1 or better though
