Stephen Foster night is sneaky one of the Conductor’s favorite cards of the year. Always quality racing and he’s a sucker for the ponies under the lights. Let’s Ride.
Race 5: 1 1/16 Mille. G3 Matt Winn Stakes
*Never a Doubt Saturday Twilight Racing Lock of the Day #2 Mr Money (2/1) – The Conductor loved him in the Pat Day Mile last time and he romped. Hog Creek Hustle came back to win last weekend who he beat by 5 lengths as well. The Conductor will single to start the sequence.
Race 6: 1 1/16 Mile. (Turf) G2 Wise Dan
#4 Hot Springs (10/1) – 3rd off the layoff, he looks pointed perfectly for this spot and is 4/5 at Churchill.
#6 Siem Rep Riep (8/1) He’s the only one that wants the lead in here. His wire job last time was no fluke, he set a hot pace and finished well.
#9 Inspector Lynley (6/1) – He’s been facing classier runners than this group, the Conductor can’t leave him off his tickets.
#10 El Picaro (12/1) – He’s dominated in Chile and is shipping to America for the first time. He’s working well and if Castellano is taking the mount, he’s live.
#11 March to the Arch (6/1) – 3rd off the layoff, he’s dropping out of G1 company.
#12 Admission Office (5/1) – The one to beat, he ran huge in the G2 Dixie last time out. The #12 post is the only concern.
Race 7: 1 1/8 Mile. F.G2 Fleur de Luis Handicap
#3 Elate (8/5) – The Conductor will use #2 She’s a Julie (2/1) as a backup but will heavily press Elate. This mare is a class above.
Race 8: 1 1/8 Mile. G2 Stephen Foster Stakes
*Gullet Shot of the Day #4 Seeking the Soul (4/1) – If the Conductor gets 4/1 on this horse he’ll back the caboose up right to the windows. He’ll use #6 Gift Box (3/1) and #7 Tenfold (12/1) as backups.
Race 9: 1 1/8 Mile. (Turf) F.G3 Regret Stakes
Let’s get this home with these girls: #4 Varenka (4/1), #5 Hard Legacy (8/1), #7 Bella Laura (8/1), #11 Princess Carolina (4/1)
