Saratoga: The only place on earth where you can get your face smashed in at the windows all day and still have a good time. The Conductor will be back….he just needs to pick up a few more jobs first. Let’s Ride.
Race 1: 6 Furlongs. S.Mdn 78k
#5 Fifty Cents (8/1) – Saez takes the mount for a low volume Gulfstream trainer who has yet to have a starter at Saratoga. This colt’s sire wins at a 18% clip with 1st timers and the Conductor has a funny feeling that this boy is live.
Race 2: 7 Furlongs. Clm 14000n3L
#1 Stink Man (12/1) – He’s dropping in class 1st off the claim and gets a rider upgrade to Rosario. His win two back gives him every chance against this group.
Race 3: 5 1⁄2 Furlongs. (Turf) Alw 50000s
#4 Our Srormin Norman (8/1) – 2nd off a long lay-off, he ran a solid 2nd at Churchill last start. He’s bred to like the turf and has never tried sprinting on the lawn. The Conductor likes his upside.
Race 4: 7 Furlongs. S.Alw 80000n1x7
#1 Kazmania (4/1) – 3rd off the layoff, he returns quickly from a start at Saratoga where he had a troubled trip. The Conductor sees him taking a step forward vs an average field and he gets a rider upgrade as well.
Race 5: 1 Mile. (Turf) Clm 30000n2L
#5 Clyde’s Runner (7/2) – The Conductor doesn’t have a strong opinion in here, but he’s logical.
Race 6: 1 1/8 Mile. Clm 40000
#7 Super Dude (6/1) – He was up against it last time, trying to close into a slow pace. He adds blinkers today, which should help his early position.
Race 7: 1 Mile. (Inner Turf) F.Mdn 90k
#9 Aymara (8/1) – She’s stretching out and switches back to the turf, which she is bred to do. Her debut was better than it looked closing into a slow pace over a speed favoring Gulfstream turf course.
Race 8: 6 Furlongs. F.S.Mdn 78k
#4 Queenofeverything (6/1) – She ran poorly over a sloppy track last time, but her race two back on a fast dirt track gives her every chance. Trainer James Bond is red hot at toga.
Race 9: 51⁄2 Furlongs. (Turf) Alw 50000s
*Gullet Shot of the Day #8 Macho Blue (15/1) – Stepping up in class, this gelding has won 3 in a row and is very quick early. This group is not very strong for this level.
Race 10: 1 3/8 Mile. (Inner Turf) F.OC 25000n1x
*Never a Doubt Best Bet From God #3 Dyna Passer (4/1) – Dropping out of Grade 1 company, she ran well to split the field closing into a slow pace. That price would be more than enough for the Conductor.
Race 11: 6 1/2 Furlongs. G2 Amsterdam Stakes
#5 Honest Mischief (7/2) – He moved early in the Woody Stephens, a race that favored closers. This colt has loads of talent, his maiden breaker at Keeneland was freaky good.
Race 12: 5 1/12 Furlongs. (Turf) F.S.MC 40000
#3 Traci’s Girl (8/1) – There’s 12 runners, throw a dart.
