Jill Byrne's Handicapping

  • Race 1 7-2-6

    Brazen Persuasion (7) comes in off the layoff and the barn switch. She is already a Grade III winner and drops into an easier race. Cookie (2) does very well over the Churchill Downs surface and comes into the race off of a nice 2nd place finish at Tampa Bay Downs. Jamaican Smoke (6) did not fare too well trying the turf last out, but switches back to the dirt today.

  • Race 2 3-4-2

    Call To Action (3) ran well in her debut race and will do well with a return to that form. Lady Margarita (4) improved last out at Keeneland and switches back to the dirt. Senior Prom (2) has run against some pretty difficult competition in her career so far but fits in well with this field.

  • Race 3 3-1-2

    Flipcup (3) has run exceptionally in every start so far in her career. She drops out of stakes competition to an easier spot. Handmade (1) did not fare too well on the synthetic surface at Keeneland last time out but should improve getting back to the conventional dirt. Tiz Windy (2) is a well-bred Filly who won nicely last out to break her maiden.

  • Race 4 2-11-10

    Unlimited Budget (3) just missed last out and should sit a good trip close to the pace. Magic Union (4) ran a huge race in the Azeri in her last start and loves the Churchill Downs dirt surface. On Fire Baby (6) ran a big effort last out in the Apple Blossom and just missed. Molly Morgan (1) makes a hike in class to Grade I competition but has been very successful over the Churchill Downs surface.

  • Race 6 4-8-6-5

    Marchman (4) ran a huge effort last out to win the Shakertown at Keeneland and has the speed to wire the field. Sum of the Parts (8) is a very gutsy horse and looks for revenge against some similar foes in this field. Positive Side (6) ran just behind Marchman last out and with a repeat of his effort in that race he will be extremely tough. Scatman (5) cuts back in distance and switches back to the turf.

  • Race 7 3-9-4

    Creative Spirit (3) crushed last out to break his maiden. If he can repeat that effort, he will be extremely tough to beat. Abou (9) ran a huge effort last out at this level and should sit a good trip in this race. Awesome Jill (4) ran extremely well over this surface in her maiden win last year. She switches back to the dirt and makes a cut back in distance.

    She’s a Tiger (10) comes in off the layoff from the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies last out. She has been training very well over the track into this start. Fiftyshadesofgold (7) chooses this spot over the Longines Kentucky Oaks. She ran second last out to the overwhelming Oaks favorite Untapable. Our Amazing Rose (4) is a lightly raced Filly but won very nicely in her only two races. Milam (9) crushed in an overnight stake race at Calder last out and is training well into this race.

  • Race 9 4-3-6-5

    Candy Kitty (4) did not fare too well over the surface at Keeneland last out but switches back to the turf where she has done very well in the past. Granny Mc’s Kitten (3) just missed in her last start off the layoff but can improve 2nd off the layoff and fits in well with this field. A Little Bit Sassy (6) has run very well in her career so far and should sit a good trip in this field. Little Journey (5) ships in from France and has yet to run a bad race in her career.

  • Race 10 2-5-7-3

Normandy Invasion (5) is still improving since his layoff from 2013-2014. He ran a nice effort last out in the New Orleans Handicap. Golden Ticket (7) stretches out in distance which should make him improve from his last start. Mylute (3) ran a nice effort in his prep race off the layoff for this spot.

  • Race 11 13-2-9-4

    Untapable (13) is one of the heaviest favorites for the Longines Kentucky Oaks in the last couple of years. She crushed her competition last out in the Fair Grounds Oaks in preparation for the Oaks. Ria Antonia (2) has been training very well for this race and has improved since switching barns to Bob Baffert. Unbridled Forever (9) ran third behind Untapable in the Fair Grounds Oaks but is training sharply into this race. Rosalind (4) comes in off of one of the most thrilling prep races at Keeneland last out and has a good chance to grab a piece of the action.
