The Mother’s Day program at Churchill Downs on Sunday, May 14th offers a 10-race card with the ninth race–an $80,000 optional claiming/”three other than” allowance affair to be contested at a mile and a sixteenth trip on the Matt Winn Turf Course–slated as the day’s featured event.
The field drew a well-matched field of seven fillies and mares headlined by the 5-2 morning line favorite Sky My Sky, a Bernardini filly trained by Mark Casse that split a field of 10 in a minor stakes at Laurel Park on “yielding” turf in her last start on April 22nd. The consistent Queenofthepalace (NZ) and a pair of uncoupled entrants trained by Wesley Ward–Mo Knows and Celestial Insight–are others in with a chance.
The Green Sheet had one winner, a second and five thirds with its’ top selections on Saturday’s program in Louisville. Additionally, The Sheet gave out a $104 trifecta in the seventh race on the card. Nine days into the meet, The Sheet is giving out FREE winners at a 21 percent clip with its’ top selection in each race finishing in the money 54 percent of time.
