Churchill Downs Saturday May 23, 2020 Horse Racing Selections:
RACE 1: #9 GOLDEN NOTION - Brad Cox drops this horse in for a tag for the first time and gets big time class relief. #10 POW WOW PRINCE also gets a drop in class and must be respected. First time starter #3 STEP TEN is coming in for hot connections and has been training well.
RACE 3: #11 RUNYON - is 8/1 morning line for Wohlers and has been leading up to this race in style. The outside post position will be used to his advantage. Can shock this field at a big price for a trainer who has a huge ROI with first time starters and in maiden races!
RACE 4: #12 ITHACA FALLS - Drury trained horse was wiped out at the start in debut race. Now 15/1 morning line and has a shot to rebound in a big way at huge odds! Sharp workouts leading up to this.
RACE 7: #4 DUNBAR ROAD - this should be the start of a big 4 year old campaign for this Chad Brown horse. Much anticipated debut in a winning effort. #8 SHE'S A JULIE has over $1 million in earnings and will put up a fight.
RACE 8: #9 SHARING - making first start of 3 year old campaign after winning Breeders Cup. Motion is money with layoffs and Franco should have this one in winning position from the start. #14 ALMS an undefeated horse from Godolphin must be used and respected.
RACE 9: #3 GLOBAL CAMPAIGN - this 4 year old by Curlin is starting to finally put everything together. Coming off a nice effort at Gulfstream and ready to make noise in this stakes race for Hough/Ortiz.
RACE 10: #2 PNEUMATIC - just keeps finding ways to win and Asmussen has been very confident leading up to this race. #1 MYSTIC GUIDE maybe the forgotten Godolphin horse in this race, but can be something special. #6 NY TRAFFIC will take them as far as he can go at big odds. #10 MAXFIELD has to be respected but will be heavy favorite and others in here present better value.
