Churchill Downs - Race 13: Post: 7:55 ET
4-Prime Factor (9/2)
Lightly-raced 3-year-old broke his maiden like a future star sprinting in his debut but then disappointed in a pair subsequent graded stakes races around two turns. Freshened, backing up in trip and adding Lasix for the first time, the son of Quality Road still has a chance to be a decent sort and this race may confirm out suspicion that he is best suited to sprint at this stage of his career. If so, the T. Pletcher-trained colt will be tough to beat at 9/2 on the morning line.

5-Happy Hepo (6-1)
Did not make it the races until June of his 3-year-old season, and after winding up a distant fourth in his debut the son of American Pharoah has taken almost a year to make it back to the post. In recent workouts he has displayed outstanding speed while proving best over some talented workmates, and F. Prat takes the call (38% when he hooks up with this barn). Since we highly doubt that the B. Baffert-trained colt was put on a plane to Kentucky to be given a race, we'll make him a strong win play and rolling exotic single while hoping to get close to his morning line of 6-1.
