Churchill Downs: Amoss has five shooters on Friday twilight card


LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Tom Amoss might make quite a few folks happy Friday evening at Churchill Downs  - or he might disappoint them, too. The veteran trainer has five scheduled starters in the final six races of the twilight Friday card (first post, 2:45 p.m. Eastern), and all of them look like they could win and thus figure to draw strong action.

Amoss will send out Why I Am (5-2) in the sixth, Jungle Juice (8-5) in the seventh, Internalaccounting (3-1) in the eighth, Vasten (2-1) in the ninth, and Thirsty Thursday (7-2) in the 11th. All are program favorites, except for Why I Am and Internalaccounting, and they're both close second choices behind the favorite in their respective races.

Through last weekend, Amoss had 5 wins and 4 seconds from 19 starters at the Churchill meet, just two wins behind co-leaders Steve Asmussen and Dale Romans in a crowded trainers' race. Meanwhile, through Tuesday, he also led the Indiana Downs standings with 10 wins.
