10 races are on the docket at Churchill Downs on Friday, September 23, as the iconic racetrack jump starts a weekend of Thoroughbred racing in Derby City.

The featured ninth race on the program is a $150,000 optional claiming / “money since” allowance affair for three-year-olds slated for a 6.5-furlong trip on the main track.

Built Wright Stables, LLC’s coupled entry of Jalen Journey, who has 10 lifetime wins to his credit, and Eastern Bay, second in the Russell Road Stakes at Charles Town in his most recent start, is the 3-1 morning line favorite in a field that attracted eight entrants. Jockey Rafael Bejarano has the call on Jalen Journey, while veteran reinsman Jon Court will be astride Eastern Bay; trainer Norman Cash conditions both halves of the entry.

First post is 12:45 P.M. (Eastern).
