CHURCHILL DOWNS BARN NOTES Friday, June 8, 2012
SCOTUS TO TRY TURF FOR FIRST TIME IN SATURDAY’S OPENING VERSE – Peter Callahan’s Scotus will make his fifth career start beneath the Twin Spires in Saturday’s $73,600 Opening Verse at Churchill Downs, but it will be his first visit to the Matt Winn Turf Course. In fact, it will be his first race on the turf anywhere.
