The Green Sheet for Sunday, October 9th rebounded from a poor performance the previous day and posted four winners from a 10-race card, including the $10 winner FAVORITE COACH in the day’s opener and EVERY MOMENT, who paid $18.60 in the day’s finale.

The Sheet also gave out a $46 cold exacta in Sunday’s first race, and a $893.60 superfecta—if the top four selections where boxed—in the Bourbon Stakes (G3).

Wednesday’s eight-race card is highlighted by the J.P. Morgan Chase Jessamine (G3), to be run at a mile and a sixteenth on the grass. Claiborne Farm’s homebred filly LULL is the 3-1 morning line favorite and is the one to fear coming off a nice stakes score at Kentucky Downs.
