CHURCHILL DOWNS Race #10
Saturday 05/16 05:40 PM Eastern
Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #2 (PORTRAIT) (7-2) - This talented filly has been freshened up since missing by a 'head' going two-turns against similar types Feb. 14 at the Fair Grounds. Competitive in all five appearances, the stalker is working fast at Keeneland and broke her maiden at this distance by 12.5 lengths in late August at Ellis Park.
2nd pick: #5 (Miss T Too) (4-1) - A lightly raced home-bred by 'Into Mischief,' she's been working fast at Payson Park since breaking her maiden when going a mile at Gulfstream March 8. She has plenty of room for upside, and it's a plus that John Velazquez stays aboard.
3rd pick: #4 (Joysome) (5-1) - Competitive in three of four last Summer/Fall, she's working fast at Keeneland for her first since Oct. 16. A Godolphin home-bred by 'Cairo Prince,' she's speedy and is very dangerous if ready.
4th pick: #9 (French Rose) (30-1) - This longshot drops in class after tiring badly in the Fair Grounds Oaks (G2) March 21. The field's lone two-time winner, her maiden came at today's seven-furlong trip Feb. 8 at Santa Anita. Calumet owned and bred, she's capable of getting a share at a big price.
