The Brad Cox-trained Coach will try to win for the sixth time in her career when she leaves the starting gate in the 2022 Chilukki Stakes on Saturday at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Ky. A 4-year-old daughter of Commissioner, Coach has been installed as the 9-5 morning-line favorite in the Chilukki Stakes odds. She Can't Sing is the 5-2 second choice in the seven-horse Chilukki Stakes field. Post time for the one-mile race is 5:35 p.m. ET.
With an accomplished field set to enter the starting gate on Saturday, you'll want to see what SportsLine writer Gene Menez has to say before making any Chilukki Stakes picks.
A former reporter and editor at Sports Illustrated, Menez covered an array of sports, including horse racing, for the magazine and its website for almost 14 years. Between 2010 and 2012, he served as SI's handicapper for the Triple Crown races and correctly predicted Super Saver to win the Kentucky Derby in 2010. In 2015, while writing for Sports on Earth, Menez accurately gave out the Kentucky Derby superfecta (American Pharoah, Firing Line, Dortmund and Frosted), which paid $1,268.20 for $2. Then in 2017, he tweeted out his Kentucky Derby picks, including Always Dreaming to win, and hit the Pick 4, which paid almost $6,900 on a $1 bet.
Now, Menez has handicapped the field for the Chilukki Stakes, made his picks and formulated his bets.
One surprise: Menez's top pick is not Coach, even though she is the 9-5 favorite. "She has lots of speed, but there are at least two others in here who are quick out of the gate," Menez told SportsLine.
Instead, Menez's top pick is a horse who "is eligible to improve." He also is high on a double-digit longshot who "could come running if the pace heats up." He is including these horses in his wagers, and so should you. You NEED to see which horses they are before making any picks of your own.
So who wins the Chilukki Stakes? Which double-digit longshot is a must-back? And how has Menez constructed his wagers? ... Join SportsLine now to get Chilukki Stakes picks and wagers, all from the expert who once cashed for $6,900 on Kentucky Derby Saturday!
