Tuesday's 6th race (3:23pm ET) from Churchill Downs is a $50,000 Maiden Special Weight affair for fillies and mares traveling a mile and a sixteenth on the turf course.
#2 Balansense (5-1) earned an improved number when switched to turf second time out and the place finisher from that heat returned to score. She dons the hood and fits well with this group.

#1 Renards Lapin (10-1) was no threat in her flat mile dirt bow at the Gulf
March 3. She lands the cozy rail, Romans shows a profit with first grass
runners, and dam has tossed four turf winners.
#8 Flores Island (9-5) attracts red hot rider Rosario and she missed by a neck in her lone turf try.
#10 Abbey Street (3-1) has been competitive in all five turf outings and sharp grass rider Napravnik hops aboard.
$18 to win #2
$1 Trifecta 1-2/1-2-8-10/1-2-8-10
