Louisville Stakes at Churchill Downs
$350,000 1 1/16 miles
1.Swift Temper 15/1
3.Miss Isella 15/1
4.One Caroline 3/1
7.French Kiss 30/1
8.Unbridled Belle 3/1
I had a hard time picking a favorite here. I loved One Caroline's romp last time out at Gulfstream(see picture above) but Zenyatta is also undefeated and won the Distaff last year and Older female of year honors. Sorry Caroline but Zenyatta, on paper, is the better horse here. I pick Zenyatta to win, One Caroline to place and I'll throw French Kiss to show. Now onto the major race for tomorrow.

Of course I'll be picking RACHEL ALEXANDRA to romp here. I'll take Gabby's Golden Gal to place and Nan to show. Go Rachel!
