Three 2nds at Aqueduct and losers at Del Mar. Hopefully some of you passengers made some money with #6 True Timber running 2nd at 30/1 in the Cigar Mile, but we still need better. Need winners today, don’t want, need. Let’s Ride.
Race 4: 1 Mile. Clm 8000
*Atom Bomb Pick 6 Starter #9 Dedicated to You (20/1) – His last two starts have been dismal, but he’s run the fastest figures in this field and races that would beat this group in the summer. He adds blinkers back on today, and if they wake him up, the Conductor is going to rip Del Mar’s throat out today.
Race 5: 1 Mile. (Turf) Alw 50000s
#4 Lucky Knickers (15/1) – In his 1st start routing on grass last time he ran a solid 4th, finishing only ½ length behind #8 Foxtail (6/1), who the Conductor also likes. He’s shown a nice natural progression and will have every chance with another small step forward.
Race 6: 6 Furlongs. F.S.Mdn. 54k
#4 Kate’s Princess (5/1) – The Conductor liked her debut a lot, running a solid 3rd after breaking slowly. She steps up in class today, but the Conductor sees it as a bode of confidence from trainer Dallas Craig.
Race 7: 1 Mile. (Turf) F.G1 Matriarch Stakes
*Gullet Shot of the Day #7 Daddy is a Legend (20/1) – Ducking thru the rail in the stretch last start, he looked like he was going to win the Valley View Stakes at Keeneland. He’s steadily progressing with a strong late kick, and he should get a perfect trip today with a hot pace to run at.
Race 8: 6½ Furlongs. OC 62500n2x
*Sunday Night Scary Preventer Lock of the Day #3 Captain Scotty (2/1) – Rounding into form, he’s run the fastest figures in this group and should run his best 2nd off a layoff and cutting back in distance. He’ll be the Conductor’s key for the day.
Race 9: 1 Mile. (Turf) Mdn 53k
#6 Leader of Men (8/1) – Breaking slow and coming from 14 lengths out of it in his debut, he showed some ability making up 11 lengths with a slow pace to run at. He’ll step forward off of that effort and be very dangerous.
