Mark Casse has every chance of getting a winner or two at Churchill Downs on Saturday but his best shot might well be in the Distaff Turf Mile where his six-year-old Get Stormy looks to grab her seventh win at Graded Stakes level. Her first was all the way back in 2018 up at Woodbine and since then she’s gone on to have victories at the top level at Saratoga, Del Mar, Kentucky Downs, Keeneland and Gulfstream Park. That last one was her 2021 debut in the Grade III Honey Bee.

Blowout for Chad Brown has pretty much always been the bridesmaid but never the bride as it were. Seven times she’s finished second or third at GS level without tasting victory. Plenty to like about her and fair to say this five-year-old will always run her best. Is she destined to never win a big race or will she finally break through? This will be her first outing of the year.

Both New York Girl for Bill Mott and Zofelle for Brendan Walsh have Grade III wins to their names. The former won over in Ireland at the Curragh in 2019 and was shipped over to the States in 2020. She won her US debut in an Allowance race at Gulfstream before hitting the board in back-to-back Graded Stakes races at Tampa Bay Downs. Little doubt she'll be in the mix. Zofelle has bounced around but has a win and a second-place so far in 2021 - both at Grade III level.

Winning a Grade I at your first attempt as a two-year-old is often a sign of good things to come. For trainer Eddie Kenneally and Abscond however - that victory in the Natalma up at Woodbine in 2019 was something of a false dawn. This daughter of Blame followed that up by finishing seventh in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf which is more than concerning.

Michael Maker seems to have entered six-year-old Jakarta in two other races this week but the six-year-old will get to run in the Distaff Turf Mile Stakes. The final horse entered is She's Got You for Chad Brown.
