Pass the drumstick and I’ll have some more stuffing. – Oh, and while you’re at it, how about some free selections to cap off a great day watching horse racing on Thanksgiving? – You got it. – Best of luck, and Happy Turkey Day from your friends at Winning Ponies!


Churchill Downs


Race #2 – #5 – Reason to Soar = He looks for 3 in a row for Robertino Diodoro. – The barn is winning 22% on the year and 4 for 6 ITM at CD. David Cohen in the irons and fits well winning 18% for Diodoro.

Race#4 – #6 – Hardly a Secret = hails from the Diodoro barn fresh off the claim where he wins 24%. He just missed last and switches riders to Cohen. He is 7 for 11 ITM on off tracks.

Race#5 – #11 – Pappy’s Best Girl = a daughter of Constitution who wins 20% with his first-timers. She was off slow, adds blinkers this outing, and I’m tossing out her first effort to bad luck. Maybe this filly will light up the tote board (20-1) on the morning line.

Race #10 – The G2 Falls City – #3 – Bonny South = She was a beaten favorite in the G2 Black Eyed Susan for the Brad Cox barn. Churchill is home base and will come rolling late in the lane.


Fair Grounds


Race #3 – #1 – Foldover = Speedy gelding under Angel Suarez who has been off 56 days. Ships back to FG and is 3/6 ITM over the course. Catch him if you can.

Race#6 – #2 -Proxy = Draws the golden rail where it’s won 21% in the past. Son of Tapit adds Lasix and just missed last out with respect at the windows. Angel Suarez in the saddle for Mike Stidham and Godolphin LLC. – Look for a solid closing effort.

Race #8 – #2 – Nitrous = Hails from the Asmussen barn and been off 56 days with a drop down the class ladder. This son of Tapit is a closer and there is plenty of speed to keep the pace honest. He will kick in for the long stretch run.
