Props to Pimlico on putting together a great Friday card. Full 14 race plays will be up Friday, but the Conductor will preview the stakes pick 5, which will get most of his attention. A big Friday means we can go for the jugular on Saturday and we know how much the Conductor like to kill. Let’s Ride.
Race 7: 6 Furlongs. F. Skipat Stakes 100k
#3 Chalon (6/5) – Nothing like starting the pick 5 with a stone cold single. We’ll find out if we’re alive or dead right from the jump. She looks like a clear stand out.
Race 8: 6 Furlongs. F. G3 Adena Springs Miss Preakness Stakes
#2 Covfefe (7/2) – She’s the lone A for the Conductor and he’ll heavily press her. 2 of her 3 career races blow this field away.
#1 Iva (15/1), #6 Never Enough Time (6/1), #7 Miss Imperial (8/1), #10 By Bye Jay (12/1), #11 Fighting Mad (4/1), and #12 Midnight Fantasy (12/1) will be used as backups.
#12 Midnight Fantasy (12/1) – She’s undefeated sprinting and is the price the Conductor will key in the trifecta.
Race 9: 1 Mile. (Turf) F. Hilltop Stakes 100k
#2 Nova Sol (7/2), #5 Dogtag (9/2) – Chad Brown wins every turf race.
#12 Orra Moor (10/1) – If there is somebody that can beat Chad, it’s Todd. This girl has run quality races on the dirt vs tough competition, if her form can translate to the turf she’ll be dangerous.
Race 10: 1 ¼ Mile. G3 Pimlico Special Stakes
This is going to be a spread race for the Conductor, this field is wide open and almost everyone has a chance.
#7 Just Whistle (20/1) – This is the Conductor’s favorite bomb in here and the one he’ll be keying in the exacta and trifecta. The distance will be no problem with his strong late pace figures and his last race was better than it looks, trying to close into a tepid pace on a speed favoring track. He can make the Conductor’s day.
Race 11: 1 1/8 Mile. F.G2 Black-Eyed Susan Stakes
#7 Brill (5/1) – Making her 3rd start off the layoff, she looks to get a perfect trip sitting just behind the leaders. She has loads of talent and her last race in the Fantasy stakes has come back live.
#8 Point of Honor (5/2) – Her late pace figures are thunderous. If she gets any pace to run at she’ll be tough to beat.
#2 Off Topic (8/1) – She’s the price the Conductor likes most. She’s a closer who caught a slow pace last start. She won’t surprise the Conductor.
