Saturday Horse Racing: God's Tipster picks Stephen Foster Day at Churchill Downs, Ohio Derby at Thistledown
Friday’s Recap from Churchill Downs:
(All odds US)
Replays for Churchill Downs can be found here:
Race 1: 5th@ 9.50-1
Race 2: 5th@ 7.80-1
Race 3: 9th@ 3.00-1
Race 4: 7th@ 7.00-1
Race 6: 3rd@ 25.00-1
We started the day with our day’s BEST BET closing from the back as we had hiked but he had to alter course in the lane and finished a fast-closing 5th – beaten a head and a nose for third and beaten a fast-diminishing 2 lengths for all the marbles. Coinmaker offered no real excuse in Race 2 getting a perfect stalking trip off the speed. In Race 3, I wish Released had been released from the start as his stretch-out-sprint-speed was not used away from the gate and with that he had no chance. In Race 4, our first time starter - Ready for Charm never fired and our longshot bomb in Race 6, Surly Furious, gave us a thrill turning for home before getting run down by the odds-on favorite, Major Fed in the stretch.
