A nine-race program is on the docket at Churchill Downs on Friday, November 20, as the historic racetrack kicks off a weekend of live Thoroughbred racing action in Louisville, Ky.

The featured eighth race on the card is an $87,000 entry-level  allowance test for three-year-olds and upward sprinting five-furlongs on the main track.

Ed and Susie Orr’s American Mandate, who has never been off the board on dirt at Churchill Downs, is the 9-5 morning line favorite in a compact field of seven entrants. Ricardo Santana, Jr. has the call on the four-year-old bay son of Strong Mandate for Hall of Fame trainer Steve Asmussen.

Post time for the first of nine races at Churchill Downs on Friday, November 20 is 1:00 P.M. (Eastern).
