After a two-day hiatus due to excessive heat, live Thoroughbred racing action returns to Churchill Downs on Friday, June 17 with a nine-race program on tap  at the historic Louisville, KY racetrack.

The featured fifth race on the card is a $62,500 optional claiming/second-tier allowance event for three-year-olds and upward slated for a nine-furlong journey on the main track.

OXO Equine, LLC’s coupled entry of Kittansett, a five-year-old bay son of American Pharoah and the Grade 2 stakes-winning mare Bsharpsonata, and Koolhaus, a four-year-old chestnut son of Nyquist who won his last start at Churchill Downs on May 12 by open lengths, is the even-money morning line choice in a compact field of five. Jockey Adam Beschizza will be aboard Kittansett for trainer Paulo Lobo, while Ricardo Santana, Jr. has the call on Koolhaus for trainer Brad Cox.

Steam Has Hat Trick On “Twilight Thursday”

Post time for the first of nine races at Churchill Downs on Friday, June 17 is 12:45 P.M. (Eastern). Additionally, there is a $47,119 carryover in the $1 Super Hi-5 (race 9, 4:55 P.M. (Eastern) post time).
