CHURCHILL DOWNS Race #2
Thursday 09/03 01:30 PM Eastern
Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #4 (COULD YOU) (8-5) - She set a pressured pace while holding on to finish 2nd of eight, beaten by just over four lengths at this distance July 12 at Keeneland for a $50K price tag. It was her first start since Nov. 30, her first in a claimer, and she's working fast as she drops down to a $30K tag. The horse to beat.
2nd pick: #7 (Kisses for Heidi) (5-2) - This daughter of 'Sky Mesa' moves back to the dirt and drops back down after a wide and even effort sprinting on the grass at Ellis Park Aug. 22. She was just under a length behind 'Could You' in her previous attempt and is a contender in this spot.
3rd pick: #1 (Tale of Mona) (15-1) - She's dropping into a claimer for the first time while racing second back following a 5.5-month layoff. Even paced in her return July 27 in Indiana, she has the rail here, a fast work Aug. 18, and she's capable of getting a share at a big price.
