The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


The strength of Wednesday’s 9th race at Churchill Downs is drawn toward the outside, principally early line favorite Confessing (5-2) and the first also-eligible, Zuzanna (6-1).

If the AE draws in, I’m all in. In her most start, she angled out 7-wide entering the stretch and closed strongly through the lane. Third, beaten two lengths, are argument can be made that she was the best filly that day.

The post will be tough and the competition could be tougher than she met at Keeneland. But given value, I’ll take my chances. Should she not draw in, we’ll take the early favorite, an impressive 5-length maiden winner at Kentucky Downs last out, returning with good spacing and white-hot Julien.

Taking Zuzanna to win at 4-1 or greater and an exacta box. If she does not draw in, we’ll take Confessing to win, no price restrictions.

YESTERDAY: Sunday’s feature horse did not race as the Belmont Park card was canceled following the first race.
