Hey racing fans:

Hope you guys have finally dried out from the rain at Churchill Downs yesterday. Not from the Lillies and the mint juleps, though. Hate to tell you, but it’s already time for the first Bloody Mary.

While you focus those eyes, take a look. Here’s my pick of the day at Churchill!

Race 8 / The Grade 3 Pat Day Mile

#5 No Dozing:

Has been the victim of tough racing luck in his last pair. He didn’t receive the best ride in the Tampa Derby and was “mugged” in the early stages of his last.

A clean trip puts this guy back into the winners circle!

His main rivals are 8-1-10, in that order.

The horse broke well today,” Gaffalione said. “I had the horse inside, Dunph, going to the lead and then (Gun It) showed a little bit of speed. When I saw they were intent on going I just tried to get him back and got him to relax. He came back to me nicely and settled well down the backside. Got a little keen going into the far turn and wanted to move a little early. But I didn’t want to take too much away from him so I tried to sit as long as I could. He was waiting on horses down the lane but I kept him at task and there was plenty of horse there.”

“Mark (Casse, the trainer) and his team have done a great job,” Gaffalione said. “They’ve had a ton of confidence in this horse the whole way. It’s just an honor to be able to ride the horse. He’s just so professional, trains great and he’s a pleasure to be around.”
