An excellent eight-race “Twilight Thursday” program kicks off the final three days of the 2018 Spring Meeting at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Ky. on June 28.

The card has a later-than-the-norm first post of 5:00 P.M. (Eastern).

The featured third on the program is an $80,000 optional claiming/classified allowance event for three-year-olds and upward slated for a five and one half-furlong trip on the Matt Winn Turf Course.

Klein Racing’s Will Call, a four-year-old bay son of Country Day who is coming off an impressive win at nearly 7-1 in the Twin Spires Turf Sprint (G3T) on the May 4 Kentucky Oaks (G1) undercard, is the overwhelming 6-5 morning line favorite in a field of seven that includes one main track only entrant.

Additionally, the card has a $30,454 carryover in the 20-cent Single 6 Jackpot (races 3-8), and a $5,503 carryover in the $1 Super Hi-5.

Steam doped out three winners on Sunday’s 10-race program at Churchill Downs and 35 days into the 2018 spring stand in Louisville, is hitting at a 22 percent strike rate; its top selections have finished in the money 60 percent of the time.
