Looks like rain for both Friday and Saturday can be counted on and the scratch of Omaha Beach has made everyone lose their minds. The Conductor’s eyes are bleeding from all of the capping this week and rest assured he is not done. Full card plays for the Oaks card will be up in the morning and the same for the Derby Day Saturday morning. This is why we bet all of those Tuesday’s at Parx. Sharpen the axe, Let’s Ride.
Race 7: 1 Mile. (Turf) F.G2 Longines Distaff Turf Mile
#4 Beau Recall (10/1), #5 Daddy is a Legend (5/1), #6 Precieuse (3/1), #8 Got Stormy (8/1) are all win contenders the Conductor will be using on top, but his top pick and key in the exacta and trifecta will be the “other” Chad Brown filly #9 Environs (8/1). She blew away the field with ease in her prep race for this spot, which was also her first start in America. She’s won multiple times over soft turf and a step forward off that last effort gives her every chance.
Race 8: 7 Furlongs. G1 Churchill Downs Stakes
Another spread race for the Conductor, this is a horserace. He’ll use #1 Do Share (10/1), #3 Majestic Dunhill (30/1), #6 Promises Fulfilled (4/1), #8 Mitole (7/2), #9 Uncontested (10/1) and #12 Whitmore (4/1) on top.
#3 Majestic Dunhill (30/1) – The Conductor will key this bomb in the trifecta with the other horses surrounding him in each spot as well. He had no pace to run at last start over a speed favoring Keeneland track and still ran a strong late pace figure to split the field. He’ll get a perfect setup in here and will make the Conductor a rich man when he hits the board.
Race 9: 1 1/16 Mile. (Turf) G2 American Turf Stakes
#2 Social Paranoia (10/1) – The Conductor doesn’t care that it was a maiden score last start, you don’t see bigger beatdowns on turf than his last start. He’s steadily progressing and 10/1 would be more than juicy. The Conductor will use him, #3 Digital Age (6/1) and #8 Avie’s Flatter (6/1) in this leg.
Race 10: 1 Mile. G3 Pat Day Mile
#10 Instagrand (6/5) – Cutting back to a mile he’s clearly the one to beat, if he doesn’t win you can make a case for anyone else in the field.
#7 Mr. Money (12/1) – The only other horse the Conductor will use on top here, he’s been up close to solid paces vs very tough competition in his last 3 starts. The shorter distance will be perfect for him.
Race 11: 1 1/8 Mile. (Turf) G1 Old Forester Turf Classic
Another very difficult race, but the Conductor will only use 3. #9 Synchrony (8/1) and #12 Bricks and Mortar (5/2) are the class of the field, but the Conductor will also use #8 Ticonderoga (8/1). Ticonderoga has really progressed in his last few starts and has a thunderous late punch. He looks primed to run a monster race.
Race 12: 1 ¼ Mile. G1 Kentucky Derby
For full analysis go to: The Conductor’s Kentucky Derby Preview
The Conductor will use #3 By My Standards (20/1), #5 Improbable (6/1), #8 Tacitus (10/1), #14 Win Win Win (15/1) and #16 Game Winner (5/1). On a few tickets the Conductor will get greedy and use only the 3 non-Bafferts on top.
