Saturday's 11-race card from Churchill Downs will feature an all-stakes 50-cent Late Pick 5 that will begin in Race 7 at 3:50 p.m.

The 15% takeout bet will cover the $300,000 Open Mind (Race 7), $400,000 Locust Grove (G3) (Race 8), $300,000 Iroquois (G3) (Race 9), $275,000 Louisville Thoroughbred Society (Race 10) and $300,000 Pocahontas (G3) (Race 11).

In the Open Mind, the compact field of five fillies and mares features the eighth matchup between multiple graded stakes winning rivals Bell's the One (6-5) and Sconsin (8-5). Joyful Cadence, who finished second to Bell's the One in the $200,000 Lady Tak last month was made the 7-2 third choice on the morning line odds. The field is rounded out by five-time winning mare Club Car and Chilean-bred stakes winner Cheetara.

The 38th running of the 1 1/16-mile Locust Grove is headlined by trainer Kenny McPeek's graded stakes-winning stablemates Crazy Beautiful (9-5) and Envoutante (5-2). Recent Saratoga allowance winner Played Hard was tabbed at 2-1 on the morning line odds.

Nine 2-year-olds will contest the Iroquois where notable Saratoga maiden special weight winner Echo Again was made the 2-1 favorite over Grade II winner Damon's Mound (5-2).

The second running of the Louisville Thoroughbred Society features a matchup of six-time winner Isolate (7-5) and seven-time winner Necker Island (5-2). The six-furlong dash also includes stakes winner Top Gunner (5-1) and Miles Ahead (6-1).
