Friday at Churchill

Kentucky Derby 141 is tomorrow.  Today we take a look at a terrific Turf contest.

Churchill Downs Race 6 {Edgewood~G3~1 1/16 mile~TURF~3 year-old~Fillies~Graded Stakes}
A talented group of seven fillies will hit the green in this mid-card feature. It comes a little light on speed, though there are three forwardly placed types that could keep the pace rolling forward.  The speed figs are relatively close. It should be a good Turf race.

#1 Quality Rocks (Lezcano / Mott) appears to have the edge with the highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and four solid workouts. She is coming off a brief freshening and should be ready to roll. This gal will be forwardly placed seeking to strike in the stretch.
$2 SHOW.

Other Wagering Interests

#4 My Year Is A Day [FR] (J. Velazquez / Motion) will present a mighty challenge in her first North American start.  She raced well in her native France securing an 83% in the money record from six starts. This gal has the potential to achieve the victory after a lengthy layoff.

#6 Feathered (Castellano / Pletcher) will hitting the grass for the first time, but should acquit herself nicely. She has a couple of decent last out speed numbers over the dirt and has put in one robust workout. This gal does own the highest speed number at the distance, albeit over the dirt. She should be a factor with her tracking style.

#5 Lady Zuzu (L. Saez / Lukas) should contend with the second highest last out speed number at a longer route, a two race progression, and two hearty workouts. She should be close to the pace ready to pounce.

During the next two days the Superfecta wager is a minimum of $1.00. We will give it a run.

#1 Quality Rocks  /  #4 My Year Is A Day [FR]  /  #6 Feathered  /  #5 Lady Zuzu.
