The penultimate Saturday program of the 2017 Fall Meet at Churchill Downs will take place under windy and rainy conditions, but adverse weather will not stymie an 11-race program highlighted by a pair of black-type events– the 10th running of the $80,000 Bet On Sunshine Stakes for three-year-olds and upward going seven-furlongs on the main track, and the 44th renewal of the Cardinal Handicap (G3T) for fillies and mares three-years-old and upward slated for a nine-panel trip on the Matt Winn Turf Course.
The program has a four-day, $25,088 carryover in the $1 Super High 5, in addition to a two-day, $14,746 carryover in the 20-cent Single 6 Jackpot.
The Green Sheet had a pair of winners on Friday’s program at Churchill and gave out a beefy $1,854 superfecta and a $1,137 trifecta in the second race on the card.
14 days day into the 2017 November stand in Louisville, The Sheet is hitting at a 23 percent strike rate; its top selections have finished in the money 54 percent of the time.
