Churchill Downs race 8 | 4:27 pm ET Claiming (30-25) for 3&up F&M going 1 mi.

5-Hadarra  After no wins in her first 6 starts, this three year old has put together and very good 3 race stretch, winning 2 and finishing 3rd in another. In her last start, she was hustled to the front to set the pace under wraps and drew off, winning by 2 3/4 lengths. This filly takes a step up in class today but I don't think it's too much to worry about. Adds jockey Joseph Rocco Jr.

2-Defoe Street  This 4yo filly by Steet Sense has been in very good form of late. Two starts back, she finished 2nd and in her last start out, she was well of the pace and went 3 wide into the turn with a nice late rally, winning by 1 3/4 lengths. She has one of the top speed figures of the bunch. This Tampa Bay Downs invader adds jockey Brian Hernandez Jr.

8-Teller Terri  This 5yo mare is making her 2014 debut today. She has finished in the top 3 in a third of her races with earnings of 100k. She has had good workouts at Churchill Downs on April the 7th and 19th. She may need a race but it's hard to go against Cory Lanerie on this track with this type of horse. She was well slotted in the race. This horse has to be used if not only for the win but also in any exotics.

Picks: 8 - 2 - 5


Good luck and have fun!
