Have a Safe Trip


Interesting sprint feature at Churchill Downs, today’s 10th, a non-winners of 3 allowances/optional claiming featuring a very sharp and fast favorite in Riley Tucker (5-2), a hard-hitting old pro that owns a pair of victories over the surface for trainer Steve Asmussen.

What makes him so tough is the fact he can win with the lead or without it, giving his rider lots of options.

But it’s Safe Trip (3-1) that intrigues us more. He comes off an excellent comeback effort in his first start off a very lengthy layoff—fast, but not too fast, and a good race to build on.

Not only does he also own two victories on this surface but has earned some of his best performance figures here.

The 5-year-old gelding makes his second start for trainer Bret Calhoun, Miguel Mena takes a return call and returns to his favorite venue seven weeks fresh.

Taking Safe Trip to win at 5-2 or greater and an exacta box with the favorite.
