A terrific opening day card at unique Kentucky Downs on this Labor Day. A stakes race to be run at one mile and seventy yards. Top choice is No. 3 Varenka. She is trained by the excellent turf horseman, Graham Motion. This is a step down in class as her race resume is the best of the field. No. 8 Strike My Fancy is saddled by a lesser-known trainer but certainly has run well as of late. No. 10 Passing Out is the likely favorite for trainer Shug McGaughey. If she runs as well as she did in April and June, this may be easy work today.
