CHURCHILL DOWNS Race #6
Saturday 05/16 03:40 PM Eastern
Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #5 (IRRITATOR) (3-1) - This Oaklawn shipper drops in class for trainer Tom Amoss. The veteran gelding has a stalking style, has won at this level in the past, and enters this off a pair of above-average half-mile works this month at the Fair Grounds. He gets a slight edge.
2nd pick: #9 (Floroplus) (4-1) - A very consistent 6yo by 'City Zip,' he moves back to conventional dirt after going 4-2-2-0 on the all-weather surface at Turfway Park. He won three of five on the dirt in the past with one of those coming here. One run type is dangerous in his current form.
3rd pick: #8 (Strong Yen) (6-1) - Another who comes from Turfway Park, he's been sharp in five straight there with the latest three coming against tougher. Speed/stalker is working fast for his first since March 21 and is in the mix at a square price.
