Jill Byrne's Handicapping

  • Race 1 6-1-3

    Denali Holy Bull (6) drops in class after facing a strong group last out. Fast and Frugal (1) is in good form and can handle the move up today. El Diablo (3) will benefit from a strong pace. JILL’S SELECTIONS – 6-1-3

  • Race 2 3-6-2

    Sister Genevra (3) has been running well versus stronger fields and has a local win. Quite Explosive (6) fits well at this level and has the running style for the added distance. All That Glimmers (2) steps up off a blow out victory and should be close throughout. JILL’S SELECTIONS – 3-6-2

  • Race 3 4-3-1

    Affair (4) was an easy winner first off the claim and is well spotted to repeat today. Billybillwillywill (3) returns to the races for a sharp barn and is a top threat here. Shut Down Corner (1) was overmatched last out and looks capable of better with these. JILL’S SELECTIONS – 4-3-1

  • Race 4 8-1-7

    Pure Rush (8) is in excellent form versus lesser company and may take this field gate to wire. Future Prospect (1) exits a tough race off the layoff and now drops to a low level looking for a rebound. Voodoo Doctor (7) is another big class dropper who should be finishing strong. JILL’S SELECTIONS – 8-1-7

  • Race 5 7-2-11

    Bargain Blitz (7) exits a good effort in a key race last out and has a win on the local turf. Oscar Party (2) returns from a layoff with solid workouts and performed well on the turf last year. Assets Of War (11) makes her turf debut with a strong pedigree for the surface and a good running style for this race.

  • Race 6 3-4-2

    Dontgothere (3) had a rough trip in his debut and should improve off that experience. Jackson Action (4) turns back in distance and drops in class and looks like a factor here. Rockefeller (2) adds blinkers and also takes a step to the bottom maidens today.

  • Race 7 5-1-8

    Western Tease (5) arrives on a win streak for a top barn and looks the best of these. Gruenewald (1) will be rolling late and may get up in time today. Ghost Chapel (8) faltered last out but is capable of better off the claim. JILL’S SELECTIONS – 5-1-8

  • Race 8 9-4-8

    Cozzetti (9) returns from a long break with a solid series of workouts and has the back class to be a danger today. Big Blue Spirit (4) is consistent, has a good running style and may have a fitness edge over the top pick. Positive Side (8) raced evenly in his first start of the year and can move forward off that effort. JILL’S SELECTIONS- 9-4-8

  • Race 9 2-5-7

    Lifes Reward (2) has two good races this year and should get a good pace set up here. Seeking An Empire (5) finished behind the top pick last out but has never run a bad race . Maserati (7) need only transfer his turf form to the main track to be a factor here.

  • Race 10 6-4-5-2

    A well matched field lines up for The G-3 Louisville Handicap with Dark Cove (6) getting the edge off his recent form and ability at the distance. Atigun (4) drew off in his second turf try and should get a perfect stalking trip today. Ioya Bigtime (5) faltered last out but is capable of better and handles the distance. Harrods Creek (2) returns from a long break with good workouts and back class. JILL’S SELECTIONS- 6-4-5-2

  • Race 11 10-3-9-11-4

    Rightous Party (10) debuts at the bottom level with a solid workout pattern for a sharp barn. Best Five (3) drops in class and fits well here. Java For Two (9) is another on the way down the claiming ladder and looks like a strong contender today. Song Ahead (11) and Pontchartrain (4) fit well in the top 5. JILL’S SELECTIONS – 10-3-9-11-4
