The tradition at Churchill Downs of racing on Thanksgiving is pretty special in Louisville and this year will be no different. But added to the bounty is a second stake race. Here are my picks for them.
Race 10 | Grade III River City Handicap | 1 1/8 miles turf
2. Heart to Heart
3. Perfect Title
4. Knights Nation
Comment: If a horse like Kalamos goes with Heart to Heart, the race sets up perfectly for Messi. Are You Kidding Me is scratched.
Race 11 | Grade II Falls City Handicap | 1 1/8 miles
Comment: Theogony has as much chance as any of the others and has a bullet work at Churchill. Chide was first or second in all four of her Churchill starts, including winning a tuneup earlier this month.
