Year in, year out, this is one of my favorite races. It's always a talented field with many different angles. And this year is no different!

Churchill Downs race 8 | 9:39 pm ET G1 Stephen Foster for 3&up going 1-1/8 mi.

1-Revolutionary: talented closer in off gutsy win in the Pimlico Special 2-Jaguar Paw: longshot ran a good race in the Clark here last year 3-Moonshine Mullin: consistent speed steps up again but is looking for 5th straight win 4-Will Take Charge: the Oaklawn Hcp may have taken more out of him than we all realized, which would explain the really bad effort in the Alysheba ~ willing to give him another chance before we start thinking he’s over the hill 5-Mylute: seems to have lost a step since coming back from the layoff 6-Departing: training great off the win & looking for him to make a lot of noise the back half of the year 7-Golden Ticket: when he wants to show it, he's right there at the wire with this bunch 8-Long River: longshot speed ships in for McLaughlin 9-Prayer for Relief: good second-tier stakes contender

Picks: 4 - 6 - 3 - 1
