Churchill Downs Picks 5-22-20 – Race 3 Post Time 2:00 – Place Bet on Spokane Eagle (6) 3/1 ML – Spokane has speed, speed, and more speed! This horse will be going right to the front when the gates open up, and we see him being able to control the pace and winning gate to wire. With that being said, the majority of the top horses in this race are closers. With the larger field, there is a good chance we can get 1/1 odds on Spokane to place, which we think is the safer play here. He has won 2 out of his last 3 races, and should be very sharp in this position. We recommend doing a good size bet on him to place, and a smaller bet on him to win. With Joel Rosario riding this horse, he should be able to control him very nicely.
We played this one a little safer by taking Spokane Eagle to place rather than win outright and it paid off. He was out front but ran out of gas in the final 1/8th to finish in second place. We knew the majority of the horses in this race were closers and that’s why we made the decision to play this one a little safer with the place bet. We played a small play on him to win and a bigger one on him to place so it was a profitable race for us.
