Today is Thurby – the locals rendition of Derby Day because we all know what a mess Churchill is on Oaks and Derby days.
Two Of A Kind won yesterday's two year old race after a :48bg work. That makes it now 10/12 winners at two years old debuting with a :48 or below work.
Churchill Downs Race 2 - $120K Maiden Special
2yo fillies going five furlongs
Going with the $110K KEE SEP YRLG 2021 sale filly 1-Empire Of My Own (2/1), who just clocked a :47.8 work from the gate on April 28. Her sire, Classic Empire, is 15% with first time 2yo fillies and her dam, In A Jif won her bow. Steve Asmussen looking for his first 2yo win has found a soft crowd today and should get the job done. Rosario/Asmussen 25% together.
Churchill Downs Race 9 – The $200K Kentucky Juvenile Stakes
2yo’s going five furlongs
Again. Wesley Ward's Hurricane Debbie faces the boys and Santa Anita shipper Tom’s Regret, a maiden winner by 11 lengths, go in this. I am betting 3-King Adrock (6/1) with Flavien Prat’s 38% dirt sprint record and his sire, Uncaptured’s record of 42% with 2yo second time starters. That recent :35 zinger from the gate on May 1 speaks to his form.
