13 race card today at Saratoga with the cancellation yesterday. The Conductor is ready for war. Let’s Ride.
Race 1: Hurdle Race, pick your favorite color.
Race 2: 7 Furlongs. Clm 16000n2L
#7 Heyitsnricopalazo (12/1) – 2nd off the layoff, this gelding has the best early pace figures in the field in a sprint without much pace. The Conductor loves him.
Race 3: 1 1/8 Mile. (Turf) MC 65000
#9 Value Engineering (1/1) – Clearly the one to beat, the Conductor will use #2 Skywriting (6/1) and #5 Crypto Gold (12/1) in the exacta. Both 1st off the claim for Linda Rice.
Race 4: 1 1/8 Mile. F.G1 Coaching Club American Oaks
#5 Point of Honor (7/2) – Her win last time in the Black-Eyed Susan was legit, closing into a slow pace. She’s proven at the distance while the heavy favorite #1 Guarana (2/5) isn’t. Guarana looks like a super filly, but the Conductor is a skeptical man.
Race 5: 1 1/8 Mile. Mdn 90k
*Never a Doubt Best Bet of the Day #4 Scars Are Cool (6/1) – Favored at Churchill last time, he ran well closing into a slow pace. The added distance will be his friend.
Race 6: 1 Mile. (Inner Turf) F.Clm 30000n2L
#12 Kinky Sox (10/1) – She showed ability at Saratoga in 2017 and has run well at Tampa in her return to the races this year.
Race 7: 5½ Furlongs. (Turf) F.Mdn 90k
#7 Mom’s Pass (4/1) – Drawn well, if she runs the same race as last time, she’ll be tough to beat.
Race 8: 6 Furlongs. Mdn 90k
#3 Yankee Empire (6/1) – He was very rank in his debut and still ran well. With some experience and natural progression, he’ll have every chance.
Race 9: 1 Mile. (Inner Turf) Alw 92000n1x
*Gullet Shot of the Day #6 King Cause (8/1) – He stepped forward when he tried turf for the first time two starts back and had no chance trying to close into a tepid pace last time. With low % connections his price will only go higher, the Conductor will key him in the exacta and trifecta.
Race 10: 7 Furlongs. OC 62500n2x
#8 Borracho (7/2) – This son of Uncle Mo was flying late in the Woody Stephens. He looks to get a good setup again today.
Race 11: 5 ½ Furlongs (Turf) F.Caress Stakes
#3 Fire Key (5/1) – This mare has a chance to wire the field. She shortens in distance today and has wicked early pace figures.
Race 12: 1 1/16 Mile. (Inner Turf) S.Alw 80000n1x
#11 Bad Guy (6/1) – Dropping back to state bred competition, he’s run well in all three of his career starts on turf. He should have been running on the lawn all along.
Race 13: 1 1/8 Mile. F.G3 Shuvee Stakes
#1 She’s a Julie (2/1) – 3rd off the layoff, she has recency over the favorite #5 Wow Cat (9/5). She’s also exiting the toughest last race in the field having faced Elate last time.
