Churchill will host live Thoroughbred racing over three weekends in September and October through Sunday, October 1 with racing on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Post time is 12:45 P.M. (Eastern) with the exception of a pair of 5:00 P.M. “Twilight Thursday” programs and a 6:00 P.M. first post on Saturday, September 23.

The Green Sheet gave out a pair of winners on Saturday’s 11-race program at Churchill and doped out a $133 trifecta in the Locust Grove Stakes (G3). Two days into the nascent meet, The Sheet is hitting at a 29 percent strike rate; its top selections have finished in the money 62 percent of the time.

For the meet to date, The Sheet has a positive 10 percent return on investment (ROI*), or a flat-bet profit of 19 cents for each two dollars wagered on its top selections.

*Return on investment is calculated by placing a hypothetical $2 win wager on all top selections and dividing the net profit by the total amount wagered.
