Churchill Downs Selections by John M. Gaver III: Wednesday, November 8, 2017

A five-day live racing week at Churchill Downs begins on Wednesday, November 8 with a 10-race program on tap highlighted by the featured ninth on the card, a $65,000 high-end optional claiming/second-tier allowance race for fillies and mares three-years-old and upward.

The race was slated for a mile and three-eighths trip on the Matt Winn Turf Course, but has been taken off the grass and will be run at the same distance over a “fast” main track.

The program also has a five-day, $36,526 carryover in the 20-cent Single 6 Jackpot.
