Churchill Downs

I Play Exacta Boxes

In races with 3 Churchill Downs Selections the total cost will be $6 for a $1 bet In races with 4 Churchill Downs Selections the total cost will be $12 for a $1 bet

The Win Candidates are in order from our top pick to our fourth (or third).

However, we root for the two biggest prices to run 1st and 2nd as it helps our payoffs in our exacta boxes. It does not matter to me if it is our top pick or our fourth- I am trying to make money!

If you have any questions just let me know,

Churchill Downs Selections 1-2-5-7 Star Rating ⭐⭐

#1 Major General-420k gelding started his career with two straight wins including winning a grade 3 in his first start here. He took on graded stakes company in four straight then tried the turf in a 200k stake and missed by 7 before not firing last out in a 300k stake. He drops in class today, likes this track and should be a good price for 25% winning trainer.

#2 Digital-got the score over this track two back then closed to miss by only 5 at this same level last out going a mile. He gets more ground today and is the one to beat.

#5 Roderick-fast 550k gelding is coming off a win at Saratoga while being claimed for 50k. He shows a bullet work since and steps up in class- a positive sign.

#7 Eleven Central-has been in the money in 4 of his 5 career starts and should be close from the start.
