The Derby Dog
“The Horseplayers Best Friend”
Churchill Downs---Saturday 6/23/2018

$Best Bet$: Race 6 #4 Pinch Hit (ML 5/2)---Difficult comeback spot in the Winning Colors Stakes (Gr. 2) for this daughter of Harlan’s Holiday, a race which included traffic issues and a finish near the rear. Sharp players pay attention to blazing morning workouts immediately following troubled trips, sending Derby Dog to the window for a Pinch Hit.

$$Long Shot$$: Race 9 #8 Bordini (ML 12-1) ---Off the claim for T. Amoss this Bernardini gelding has a nice LATE KICK that can prevail against a SOFT pace, BULLET 4f work (48.4), Slight hop last time out at the OCL 34k level yet swung five wide and won by 2 ¾. Let’s ride him again today for his second consecutive win.

The Derby Dog
“The Horseplayers Best Friend”
Churchill Downs---Sunday 6/24/2018

$Best Bet$:  Race 8  #6 Compose (ML 2-1)---Virginia bred mare certainly has improved in form since three Oaklawn starts without an on the board finish.  Rolling in on a two race Churchill Downs win streak we aren’t about to bet against Compose who is looking for career victory number 16.
 
$$Long Shot$$: Race 10  #2 J.A. Curlin (ML 10-1) ---LONE SPEED will be the #12 who will look strong early, Our LATE closer will pounce on his pace at just the right time, In good form and a strong recent work, Hung LTO to finish 3rd but by only 1 ¾. Catalano/Hill.
