It’s A “Go” For The Kentucky Oaks At Churchill (5/6/16)

May 6th, 2016 | By | Category: Churchill, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for the Friday card at Churchill — the weekend of racing looks as incredible as the weather forecast, so let’s see how I do today with a very difficult handicapping challenge ahead of me!

In race 11, The Grade 1 Kentucky Oaks, Go Maggie Go (#4) is lightly raced and although 2 for 2, gets the acid test for class today — may be this good,  should get a perfect stalking trip and the price will be right.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 11 and 2.

In race 10, The Grade 3 Edgewood, Outsider Art (#7) was closing fast in last against her top rivals and gets a fast pace and an extra 1/16th to turn the tables at a big price — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 1 and 10.

In race 8, The Grade 3 Turf Sprint, Summation Time (#2) was hard luck 4th in last against Something Extra (#11) – cut back to 5 furlongs and inside post don’t help, but the pace will be brutal and a clean trip could lead to a last second victory at a decent price.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 11 and 7.  Here’s the entire card and good luck today and with the Derby tomorrow!
