FREE CHURCHILL PICKS for Sunday

We highly recommend playing exacta boxes in each race. They have consistently been our best return on investment and it’s how we count our winners!

If you have any questions just let us know- support@battagliaspicks.com

The win candidates in each race are in order from our top pick to our fourth. 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 us if its our top pick or fourth!

Rating Key:

3 stars – Great Race
2 stars- Good Race
1 star- Good Race to Pass

Win Candidates 8-4-7-3 Rating 2 stars

#8 Urbanite-has really improved since adding blinkers 5 starts back. He was claimed for 20k while finishing third beaten only 4 lengths over this track. He then moved up to 30k at Keeneland and missed by only 4 lengths again. He drew off to get the score at Thistle Downs in an allowance race and missed the repeat by only a length last out. This 230k colt is cut out to be a runner and should give the favorite a run for his money.

#4 Pickford-likes this track with a win and a second from his three starts here. He has been taking on tougher and is the one to beat.

#7 Social Afleet-has some back class and the only time he ran for this cheap he finished second over this track.

#3 Majors Vindication-has been right there in his last four of six missing by less than a length twice, with a win and a three length loss. He should be in the gimmicks again today.
