Jeremy Plonk's Horse Racing picks for 9/18

By Jeremy Plonk  (Xpressbet Editor-in-chief) 

XpressBet editor-in-chief Jeremy Plonk offers his best bets for Sunday.

Churchill Downs Race No. 4 (2:13 p.m. ET/11 a.m. PT)

#8 Bread Winner (8-1 ML)

Trainer Tom Amoss' 2-year-olds at Churchill have been incredibly successful this year at 7-for-17, including a big stakes win Saturday. He makes a subtle, but important move to easier competition with this colt, who ran into traffic issues in his only prior start. Win-Place bet.

Churchill Downs Race No. 10 (5:26 p.m. ET/2:26 p.m. PT)

#11 Higginson (4-1 ML)

Another live first-time starter for the Brad Cox barn, which easily outpaces all others in Churchill September meets with debut runners the past 5 years. Outstanding pedigree with late-developing tendencies on the sire and dam sides, which explains the late 3-year-old debut. Win bet.
