Steam: Churchill Downs, Day 1: Saturday, April 28, 2018 

Steam’s FREE Spotlight Play of the Day for: Churchill Downs, Saturday, April 28, 2018

Steam ChurchillChurchill Downs in Louisville, Ky. will kick off its 2018 Spring Meeting and Kentucky Derby week on Friday, April 28 with a 10-race evening program highlighted by the 4th running of the $100,000 William Walker Stakes for three-year-olds sprinting five-furlongs on the Matt Winn Turf Course.

Newtown Anner Stud’s Beckford (GB) is the 3-1 morning line choice in the turf test by virtue of his fifth place finish–beaten just two lengths by the multiple stakes winner and likely Kentucky Derby (G1) starter Mendelssohn–in last fall’s Breeder’s Cup Juvenile Turf (G1T) at Del Mar. The three-year-old son of Bated Breath (GB) will make his first start for trainer Brendan Walsh; jockey Julien Leparoux has the call.
