It’s a Wise Man Who Sticks with Dan
The race of the day clearly is the Grade 1 Stephen Foster Handicap from Churchill Downs with a scheduled post time of 9:39 p.m.
Try as we might we can't go beyond early line favorite Wise Dan (8-5) who ran off the screen at Keeneland, earning a layover Equiform figure, and given two months recovery time for return. He's won half he's six starts at Churchill, is working bullets, attracts Johnny V., a his next defeat in four starts at 9 furlongs will be his first.
Taking Wise Dan to win, no price restrictions, and key boxing him in the exacta with the much improved Fort Larned (5-1) and the #1 ranked horse in America, Alternation (4-1).
