Here are our best bets for today’s action at Churchill Downs race track.

2:00pm (Race 1) Churchill Downs – What A Country (2-star play)

The winner of each of his last two starts, the son of Verrazano delivered a three-quarters-of-a-length victory in a $16,000 claimer over a mile-and-one-sixteenth on a good main track here in September. Joined the William Walden barn after that contest and the five-year-old, who has delivered a couple of time works over four furlong works at Keeneland since that latest victory is selected to complete a hat-trick down in grade with Jack Gilligan booked for the ride.   

4:06pm (Race 7) Churchill Downs – Pledge of Allegiance (2-star play)

Ended his time with his previous trainer with a four-and-a-half-length victory in a $50,000 claiming contest over this course and distance last week. Had been in good form at this level prior including when four-and-a-quarter-lengths fourth over six furlongs at Keeneland on her penultimate start and she is taken to reverse form with Cold As Hell and Spend Benjamins from that Keeneland event with Keith J Asmussen in the saddle on his first start since joining the Steve Asmussen barn.   

5:06pm (Race 9) Churchill Downs – Casa de Goat (2-star play)

Made an impressive debut when delivering a twelve-and-three-quarter-length victory in a seven furlong maiden special eight at Keeneland in April. Below that form when fading upped to a mile-and-one-sixteenth in finishing thirteen lengths fourth in an allowance here the following month. Off the track since that effort she has been in good form in the mornings of late including when delivering a 1:01.20 breeze over five furlongs here last Friday and she is selected to return with a victory.
