What a three-day card we have in front of us at Belmont. Strap in, Let’s Ride.
Race 1: 1 3/8 Mile. (Turf) OC 25000n1x
#2 Pillar Mountain (5/2) – 2nd off the layoff, he closed nicely into a slow pace last time. The Conductor really like his effort at Saratoga as well.
Race 2: 1 Mile. S.Alw 74000n1x
*Gullet Shot of the Day #7 Joe’s Smokin Gun (15/1) – The favorites in here are exiting good efforts over sloppy tracks, while he ran a poorly over one. His fast dirt track form makes him competitive in here and he has upside stretching out to a mile for the 1st time. The Conductor will key him in the trifecta.
Race 3: 1 1/8 Mile. (Inner Turf) F.G3 Wonder Again Stakes
#3 Newspaperofrecord (1/5) – She’ll strut her stuff today.
Race 4: 6 ½ Furlongs. F.Mdn 90k
#1 Liza Jambalaya (5/1) – She’s well-bred and working like a good thing by all accounts in the mornings. The rail has been good so far this meet.
Race 5: 1 Mile. (Turf) F.Mdn 90k
*Never a Doubt Conductor Note Playback Lock of the Day #9 Keepme in Thegame (7/2) – This filly ran a solid closing 3rd into a slow pace in her debut at Keeneland. The Conductor had a note on her to play her back, which makes her an absolute lock.
Race 6: 6 ½ Furlongs. Alw 92000n1x
#1 Hersh (7/2) – This colt’s maiden breaker at Saratoga was eye catching. With natural progression he’s very dangerous and just posted a bullet work.
Race 7: 5 ½ Furlongs. F.150k Astoria Stakes
#3 Perfect Alibi (5/2) – She was with the Conductor the night of the murder, she swears.
Race 8: 7 Furlongs. (Turf) F.G3 Intercontinental Stakes
#1 Enthusiastic Gal (20/1) – She’s taking a big step up in class, but steadily progressing and making her 2nd start off a layoff. She’s 4/4 at Belmont and the Conductor will key her in the trifecta at a big number.
Race 9: 6 Furlongs. (Inner Turf) S.Mdn 72k
#3 Blue Parrot (10/1) – Well-bred for top connections, the runners with experience in here are nothing special.
