Churchill Downs Race 1 - Post time: 6:00 ET

7-Roger McQueen (3-1)

This promising first-timer breezed the fastest time for the distance at the OBS March Sale when he sizzled a quarter mile in 20 2/5 seconds and then brought $530,000 through the ring.  From the first crop of the multiple graded stakes winning Unified out of a stakes winning mare, the L. Rivelli trained colt is bred for speed top and bottom and has done everything asked of him while preparing for this race in a series of recent sharp drills over the all-weather track at Arlington Park.  We’ll make him a win play and rolling exotic single and hope to get close to his morning line of 3-1. 

Churchill Downs Race 9 – Post time: 10:11 ET

4-Temple City Terror (5-1)

This daughter of Temple City is bred to run all day and gets her first crack at a marathon distance in the Keertana Overnight Stakes at a mile and one-half for older fillies and mares.  A one-paced grinder with an affection for the Churchill Downs grass course (two wins, one second, in three career starts), the B. Walsh-trained mare should have enough tactical speed to settle somewhere in mid-pack and then have every chance to out stay her rivals with her steady but relentless late kick.  She’s listed at 5-1 on the morning line and given today’s elongated trip she’s worth a play at or near that price.
