The Conductor had a shorty winner in the opener yesterday, then couldn’t hit the broad side of a barn. This week is a can’t lose Conductor! Tighten it up! We need money to play with tomorrow, Let’s Ride.
Race 1: 7 Furlongs. Mdn 90k
#2 Per Capita (8/1) – The “other” Chad in this race. His dam has produced 3 stakes winners from 6 starters, he’s posting bullet works and will be a bigger price.
Race 2: 6 Furlongs. (Inner Turf) F.S. Mdn 72k
#8 Lead Guitar (5/1) – 200k at auction, George Weaver can surprise with 1st time starters and the Conductor likes his work tab. His bullet work at Keeneland April 30th did not go unnoticed.
Race 3: 1 Mile. (Turf) OC 80000n1x
#1 Wild Medegliad’oro (5/1) – He took a little while to break his maiden, but he was very impressive stretching out on the grass for the 1st time. This is what he’s wanted all along.
Race 4: 6 ½ Furlongs. S.OC 40000n2x
#7 Fiery Opal (10/1) – The favorites look tough to beat, but the Conductor is going to key this gelding in the trifecta, mostly underneath. Cutting back to a sprint after racing last weekend, he will come running late.
Race 5: 7 Furlongs. F.G3 Bed of Roses Stakes
#7 Separationofpowers (5/2) – Drawn well to the outside, she looks primed for this spot 2nd off the layoff.
Race 6: 1 Mile. (Turf) OC 100000n3x
#6 Gidu (8/1) – He has an early pace edge on this field and is working well entering today. The Conductor will root for him to get to the front and scamper away.
Race 7: 5 ½ Furlongs. 150k Tremont Stakes
#2 Maven (7/5) – The son of American Pharoah, he looked great in his debut win last time.
Race 8: 6 ½ Furlongs. G2 True North Stakes
*Gullet Shot of the Day #8 Do Share (5/1) – He ran solid last time closing into a moderate pace against Mitole, who we’ll see tomorrow in the Met Mile. The Conductor loves him in this spot, its his best bet on the card.
Race 9: 1 ¼ Mile. (Inner Turf) F.G2 New York Stakes
*Never a Doubt Friday Night Bottle Service Lock of the Day #8 Homerique (6/5) – She’s too classy for this group.
Race 10: 2 Miles. (Turf) G2 Belmont Gold Cup
#4 Red Knight (7/2) – He’s proven at the distance, 2nd off the layoff and does his best running at Belmont.
Race 11: 6 Furlongs. (Inner Turf) F.Alw 40000s
#8 Queen Kahen (10/1) – 1st off the claim for Linda Rice, his win last time on dirt gives him every chance if he takes to the lawn.
