Churchill Downs

Race 5: Twilight card in Louisville for race fans. An allowance-optional claiming race to be run at a mile on the turf. Our top choice is No. 2 Rare Form. Toss the ambitious stake attempt at Kentucky Downs. He’s the lone speed and may lull the field to sleep. No. 4 Secretary At War will be the likely favorite. He’s certainly run at higher levels and this reprieve in class may be the answer. No. 10 Souter shows up from Southern CA for trainer Mark Glatt. He’s 11 for 16 in-the-money on turf courses.
