In a normal year, Saturday's Matt Winn Stakes at Churchill Downs would attract a moderate-sized field comprised largely Triple Crown refugees and later-blooming sophomores intent on making a summer splash.
This year it's drawn a large and competive field of colts trying to make the cut for the upside down 2020 Triple Crown. Fortunately for handicappers the Betmix Angler online handicapping database provides a steady and consistent stream of important data.
An Angler scan tells us that horses ranking first in the Average Speed Last 3 handicapping factor have triumphed in 6 of the past 7 running of the Matt Winn. Among those is 2018 King Zachary, who returned $26.60 to his backers and the only contender not to win, Fame and Power in 2015, completed the exacta.
Find this race in Betmix Birddog and use the Average Speed Last 3 slider to see which horse ranks first in this factor. That’s the Sharp Angles play.
