Churchill Downs Full-Card Analysis: Sunday, June 4, 2017

Listen to the first episode of “Riders Up!” with Frank Lyons and John Gaver!

Churchill Downs will close the curtain on another live racing week on Sunday, June 4 with a nine-race program highlighted by the nightcap, a $53,000 high-end optional claiming/second-tier allowance affair to be run at a mile and a sixteenth on the Matt Winn Turf Course.

Marc Detampel’s Western Reserve is the 2-1 morning line favorite in the field of 12 older colts and geldings, but the stakes-winning dark bay son of Indian Charlie figures to get a stiff challenge from Live Oak Plantation’s Speight Swiftly, a lightly-raced, undefeated son of Speightstown that has been installed as the 5-2 second choice.

The Green Sheet touted four winners on Saturday’s 11-race program in Louisville and gave out a healthy $395 trifecta in the third on the card. 22 days into the meet, The Sheet is giving out FREE winners at a 29 percent clip with its’ top selection in each race finishing in the money 63 percent of time.

Post time for the first of nine races on the Sunday, June 4 program at Churchill Downs is 12:45 P.M. Eastern. The card has a carryover of $36,073 in the 20-cent Pick 6 Jackpot and a $38,989 carryover in the $1 Super Hi-5.
