Churchill Downs

Race 5 

A claiming race on dirt to be run six furlongs. Top choice is No. 2 P R Radio Star. A few good things happening with this horse. First, his previous race at Churchill was impressive both in style and sheet figure result. Secondly, he gets a rider upgrade with Tyler Gaffalione.  Speaking of rider improvements, No. 1 Charge the Line gets Ricardo Santana and will try charge to the front from the outset. No. 5 Touching Rainbows has been working steadily in the mornings. He can be a contender if he runs like he did a few back at Oaklawn.
