Fast and firm for the Saturday card at Churchill — decided to do handicap here on closing day with a great Stephen Foster card on tap, so let’s see how we do!

In race 10, The Grade 2 Wise Dan, Ride A Comet (#7) has faced some good ones in last few and gets a better pace scenario to enhance late kick at a decent price — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 1.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

In race 11, The Grade 1 Turf Classic, Ivar (#4) comes back off the layoff for trainer who has done well here with limited starters and best race wins this — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 6 and 7.

In race 10, The Grade 1 Churchill Downs Sprint, Flagstaff (#4) always has good positional speed to put himself in a good spot and 7 furlongs is perfect — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 1 and 9.

In race 12, The Grade 1 Kentucky Derby, O Besos (#6) should benefit from fast early pace and pick up some major pieces late at a big price — I’m playing him and Rock Your World (#15) on top with #’s 9, 14, and 17 in exotics to try and beat Essential Quality at even money or so!  Here’s the entire card and good luck!
