Friday’s $300,000, Grade 2 Mrs. Revere Stakes at Churchill Downs is a flat-out fantastic betting race featuring 11 3-year-old fillies competing at 1 1/16 miles over a much-maligned turf course. After spending around $10 million to install a new turf course for the spring 2022 meet, Churchill officials halted turf racing in June after growing complaints about the course’s poor quality and safety issues.

There is an old saying in horse racing – “pace makes the race” – that is a core tenet of analyzing races. Essentially what it means is that how fast a race in run in the early stages and how many horses vie for the lead plays a major role in which runners have the best chance to win.
