Nothing like striking out to start the week. The Conductor only has two options now, dig out of the hole, or dig a deeper one……Either way he’s happy, Let’s Ride.
Race 1: 1 1/16 Mile. (Turf) F.Clm 25000
#2 Amazing Audrey (6/5) – She’s the most likely, the Conductor has no feel for this race.
Race 2: 6 Furlongs. F.Mdn 75k
#7 Miraculousblessing (12/1) – This filly is coming up from Monmouth where she is posting bullet works. Gaffalione and trainer Kelsey Danner teamed up for a 33/1 debut winner in their lone start together at Saratoga.
Race 3: 7 Furlongs. OC 80000n2x
#3 No Dozing (9/5) – The Conductor keeps burning money on him so he’ll do it one more time.
Race 4: 5½ Furlongs. (Turf) Mdn 90k
#2 Relentless Dancer (8/1) – The Conductor likes this colt’s work tab and Jose Ortiz has been very strong for Maker this meet.
Race 5: 7 Furlongs. MC 50000
#4 Majestic West (8/1) – He’s working well for strong connections and his dam has produced 6 winners from 6 starters. The runners with experience aren’t anything special.
Race 6: 1 1/8 Mile. (Inner Turf) Clm 30000n2L
#12 Southern Brigade (5/1) – He broke his maiden at the return to the races at Belmont last start and this field is abysmal. The Conductor would love 5/1 on him.
Race 7: 5½ Furlongs. (Turf) F.S.Alw 80000n1x
*Double Barreled Shotgun Shots #2 Andarta (12/1) – Her maiden breaker last summer at Saratoga at this distance is the best race this field has. At a big number, the Conductor will use her.
#10 Silencia (9/2) – Shipping in from Laurel, her early pace figures last time out give her an edge against this field.
Race 8: 6½ Furlongs. F.S. Union Avenue Stakes 100K
*Gullet Shot of the Day #2 Bonita Bianca (9/2) – She won this race last year and is cutting back to a sprint today in her 2nd start of 2019. Servis puts the blinkers back on her and she looks to get a perfect trip stalking a hot pace.
Race 9: 1 Mile. (Inner Turf) F.S.Mdn 78k
#12 Crescent Lady (6/1) – Making her 3rd career start and working well, she moved early into a hot pace last start and was only beaten two lengths. The Conductor sees her graduating today.
