Churchill Downs

Race 10

The Matt Winn Stakes for three year old’s. This is a race where horses are looking to amass points for the Kentucky Derby. Top choice is No. 12 Major Fed. This horse was off slow in the Louisiana Derby and with such a big field it left him compromised. Despite that he closed very well to finish fourth. Word is that he’s been training quite well. No. 10 Maxfield will be the heavy favorite, and for good reason. He’s raced twice and won both times impressively. But he’s been on the bench for eight months. No. 6 Ny Traffic has a front running style and impressive sheet figures.
