Saturday night's Stephen Foster pits a field of nine seasoned older horses seeking Grade 1 glory under the Twin Spires at Churchill Downs. It's also the last chance for North American horseplayers to handicap a Grade 1 race until later on in July.

A scan of the Betmix Angler online handicapping database reveals that the Last Late Pace handicapping factor has pointed to 6 recent winners of this race type at the historic Louisville track. Among the winners is Noble Bird, who scored as the fourth choice in the 2015 edition of the Foster.
