CHURCHILL DOWNS Race #6
Thursday 09/03 03:40 PM Eastern
Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #10 (OXIDE) (3-1) - He's moving from grass to dirt while dropping in class for this attempt. The $120K purchase raced both wide and evenly going a mile on the Indian Grand grass July 29 facing 2l allowance foes. A maiden winner here May 16, he's working fast, draws a fine outside post, and gets a slight edge.
2nd pick: #3 (Eight Ain't Enough) (4-1) - One of three 4yos entered, he's been freshened up since an easy gate-to-wire maiden win on the Gulfstream turf Feb. 8. Competitive on a wet track there in his previous start, he worked fast here Aug. 13 and is dangerous today.
3rd pick: #8 (Sea of Hope) (7-2) - Nicely bred 4yo tired while wide going seven furlongs Aug. 14 at Ellis Park facing tougher. He fits well with these and is a win candidate as he drops into a claimer for the first time.
