A huge field of 14 will contest the feature at Churchill Downs on Saturday, the $150,000 Louisville S. (G3). The 1 ½-mile grassy endeavor is led by deserving favorite #10 Arklow (7-5), who missed by a head in the race last campaign. A Grade 1 winner, the seven-year-old son of Arch is an obvious inclusion for most wagers, but I feel compelled to find value in an event with this many contenders signed on. And I will swing for the fences.

A cast of 11 three-year-old fillies will run seven-eighths on the Belmont outer turf course in Saturday’s $100,000 Soaring Softly S. (G3). The good betting race has attracted a lot of intriguing prospects from top barns in a grassy affair that lacks a standout. Conditioner Christophe Clement has two entered for the feature, and I think that both of his trainees have a chance in the deep field.
