Jim Dandy Day at the Spa, what a treat. Let’s Ride.
Race 1: 5½ Furlongs. (Turf) MC 40000
#6 Blacktop Legend (6/1) – Making his 2nd start off the claim for Gary Guillo, this gelding cuts back to a sprint after pressing a hot pace going a route last time.
Race 2: 6 Furlongs. Mdn 90k
#5 Bossy Bride (8/1) – He’s run well closing into slow paces in his young career. He looks to get a good trip today.
Race 3: 5½ Furlongs. (Turf) Clm 25000
#4 Psychic Energy (9/2) – 1st off the claim for Linda Rice, she’s heating up.
Race 4: 5½ Furlongs. Mdn 90k
#5 Kawalski (4/1) – Well bet in his debut, he got off to a slow start and ran well to close for 3rd into a slow pace. With experience, the Conductor sees him taking a big step forward.
Race 5: 1 1/16 Mile. (Inner Turf) OC 62500n2x
#5 Prioritize (10/1) – Chad Brown will likely win this race with either the #2 or #7, but the Conductor will key this boy in the exacta. Making his 3rd start off the layoff, he’s had no pace to run at in his last two starts. With a fair setup he’ll be right there at the wire.
Race 6: 6 Furlongs. F.S.Alw 80000n1x
#9 More Mischief (9/2) – Making her 2nd start of the year, she’s steadily progressing and looks to get a perfect strip up close to a slow pace.
#7 Sweet Meadow List (8/1) – Switching back to dirt, there is noting to knock about her dirt efforts.
Race 7: 1 1/16 Mile. (Turf) Mdn 90k
#5 Economic Policy (5/2), #2 Blanket of Roses (6/1) – Chad Brown
Race 8: 6 Furlongs. Alw 92000n1x
#9 Overdeliver (3/1) – Cutting back to a sprint, he looks to get a perfect staking trip drawn to the outside with a wicked pace up front.
Race 9: 6 Furlongs. G1 Alfred G. Vanderbilt Handicap
*Gullet Shots of the Day #2 Strike Power (6/1) and #7 Do Share (15/1) – The Conductor sees the favorite #1 Mitole (1/1) vulnerable in here. Strike Power ran a monster race behind Catalina Cruiser last start and will put mighty pace pressure on Mitole, who must send from the rail. The Conductor thinks Strike Power has a major chance to pull the upset and will also give Do Share one more shot. There is a possibility of a pace meltdown in here and Do Share will be flying late at a juicy number.
Race 10: 1 3/8 Mile. (Inner Turf) G2 Bowling Green Stakes
#3 Ya Primo (8/1) – Watch the replay of her last start in Chile. She has major trouble at the start and still obliterates a 15-horse field. The Conductor doesn’t care who she beat, she has talent and is in Chad Brown’s hands.
Race 11: 1 1/8 Mile. G2 Jim Dandy Stakes
*Never a Doubt Feature Race Lock of the Day #4 Global Campaign (2/1) – In a race devoid of pace, the Conductor sees him controlling the race on the front end. Gate to wire, #5 Tacitus (7/5) will be too far back to run him down.
Race 12: 1 Mile. (Turf) Clm 30000n2L
#4 My Macho (5/1) – He’s lightly raced and trending in the right direction.
