Race 1: #8 Laope (ML 7-2)

Race 2: #2 Trick My Ride (ML 8-1)
Daughter of Kela finished a well-beaten second in her debut, but her fifth place finish over six and a half furlongs on the dirt at Churchill Downs was better than it appears on paper, as she broke slowly and closed well down the stretch.
*Others to consider: None

Race 3: #5 Super Star Darrell (ML 8-1)
Finished second and first in his last two races, both of which were at today's distance, albeit at Indiana Downs. In his most recent start, he engaged in a duel down the stretch, but was able to wear down his closest competitor.
*Others to consider: #7 Swaylon Braylon (ML 4-1)

Race 4: #1/1A Lonesome Street/Beer Garden (ML 5-2)
In his last outing, Lonesome Street displayed an good late kick en route to a fifth place finish at the same distance as today's contest.

*Others to consider: #8 Motor City (ML 8-1)
