CHURCHILL DOWNS Race #9 (THE EDGEWOOD STAKES (G2))
Friday 09/04 03:35 PM Eastern
Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #3 (SHARING) (6-5) - She makes her first start since finishing a solid 2nd in a $300,000 Group 1 stakes going a mile at Royal Ascot in England, June 20. A winner of four straight prior to that, she won the Eclipse Award as the top 2yo filly on the grass last year. A $350,000 daughter of 'Speightstown,' she's been working fast at the Fair Hill Center and gets top billing.
2nd pick: #1 (In Good Spirits) (5-1) - A lightly raced daughter of 'Ghostzapper,' she's gone 4-2-0-1 since switching to the grass and was only a bit over a length behind 'Sharing' here at this distance in the Tepin Stakes May 23. She has the rail, a speed/stalking style, and is a serious player.
3rd pick: #8 (Walk in Marrakesh) (6-1) - Irish import hasn't won in six starts since coming to North America last September, but has finished 2nd in three stakes losing by a 'head' or a 'nose' in each of those fine efforts. She's in the mix at a square price.
