As we gather and give thanks for the sacrifices of so many that we may enjoy our freedom; reflect on those who gave the ultimate sacrifice. This is a day to gather and celebrate together. So, let’s kick off the day with some free selections on the races where many will gather and enjoy the day.


Churchill Downs


Race#5 – #6- Jazzy Lady = 3rd off the layoff for Greg Foley and Tyler Gaffalione. She takes a huge plunge in class and cuts back in distance. Tyler G wins 20% with late-running grass horses and teams up well with Greg Foley.

Race#6 – #6 – In Sky We Trust = This son of Sky Kingdom drops down in class and rider Gabe Saez has been hot going 4/8 ITM the past week. The drop-in class looks good for trainer Michelle Lovell.

Race#7 – #3 – First Premio = is 3/6 ITM at CD and goes to post for Mark Casse and B.J. Hernandez. – He exits off a strong win and owns a solid late kick turning for home.

Race#9 – #7- Bakwana = A strong late runner for Darrin Miller and Tyler Gaffalione. – His dam Occuluna has 5 starters, 4 winners, and 2 turf winners. Look for a late effort picking up the pieces turning for home.
