Below is our FREE Late Pick 3 for Churchill Downs:

Race 7: Starter Allowance

#3 On a Spree dominated Oaklawn Park horses last time out while catching a fast track. #6 Hoodlum won 3 & placed in the other 2 of 5 Fair Grounds starts over the winter.

Race 8: Allowance Optional Claiming

#1 Howl looked ultra-sharp in her 1st 2 career starts but was a complete no-show in the La Brea Stakes (G1) last December. #3 Unsung Melody has a clear pace advantage on paper & should run an improved effort in her 2nd start after the layoff.

Race 9: Maiden Special Weight

#9 Deep Satin rallied from the back to just miss winning her debut & should be tough to hold off late. #3 Timeless Elegancy also loves to spot the field several lengths early & come running with a flourish. #1 Without Cause could get brave on the front end & take them gate to wire from this rail draw.


$1 Pick 3 (Races 7-9) 3,6 / 1,3 / 1,3,9 = $12
