Churchill Downs Race 8 – Post time: 4:22 ET

1-Wicked Halo (4-1)

From the first crop of the Horse of the Year Gun Runner, this precocious filly provided strong evidence of future stardom when breaking her maiden at first asking at Lone Stone Park earlier this month while earning a huge speed figure. In winning with authority and with plenty left in the tank, the S. Asmussen-trained 2-year-old displayed the tools that should allow her to return off relatively short rest and capture this year’s edition of the Debutante S. Today’s extra furlong should be no problem and because she just won from the rail, in her inside post is of little concern. At 4-1 on the morning line, she’s an aggressive play as a win play and in the various rolling exotics.

Belmont Park Race 9 – Post Time: 5:12 ET

2-Minaun (5/2)

Irish-bred filly was a breathtaking winner in her U.S. debut in late April when producing an electric late turn of foot to dismantle a first-level allowance field with distain. A Group-3 stakes winner overseas during in a two-race campaign as a 2-year-old, the daughter of Zoffany appears to have exceptional talent and can be expected to score again in this year’s renewal of the listed Wild Applause Stakes for 3-year-old fillies. This stretch out to a mile shouldn’t be any issue at all, so at 5/2 on the morning line the C. Brown-trained import offers excellent wagering value both as a win play and as a rolling exotic single.
