Thursday night plays at Churchill Downs

June 16th, 2016

It's a hot night in Louisville, but not as hot as these picks for the eight-race Thursday night card at Churchill Downs featuring a $560,991 carryover in the Single^6 jackpot carryover.

I'll stop short of calling my top pick, #1 Golden Point, my best bet of the night, but I do think that race--the 7th--provides the best opportunity on the card, as I don't expect both #5 Scissors and Tape or #6 Gustnado to run to their odds (3-to-1 and 5-to-2 as the 2nd and top choices on the morning line, respectively). So the opportunity will be to be one of them out of the money and hope to get either Golden Point or #2 Silver Dagger in the number.
