Chalk fest at Belmont yesterday, which never suits the Conductor. Kentucky Downs also played as a turf highway, gate to wire all day. Let’s pray to the pony gods for a good end to the week. The first NFL Sunday, Let’s Ride.
Race 1: 6 Furlongs. (Turf) S.Mdn 62k
*Gullet Shot of the Day #5 Hudson Overpass (8/1) – This boy has improved in every start and the Conductor likes the aggressive bump up in class. His early pace figures give him an edge here as well. The Conductor will key him in the exacta.
Race 2: 1 Mile. F.Clm 16000n2L
#5 Movie Score (7/5) – Its tough to like any of these fillies.
Race 3: 6 Furlongs. (Inner Turf) MC 40000
#6 Mo Fun (6/1) – He was bumped at the break, forced 5 wide, and still ran a good 4th in his debut at this level. The conductor likes his upside.
Race 4: 7 Furlongs. Clm 16000
#3 Javelin (9/2) – Dropping in class, his effort at Belmont two back will give him every chance.
Race 5: 1 Mile. (Turf) S.Mdn 62k
#9 Portfolio Hedge (3/1) – The conductor never hedges.
Race 6: 6 Furlongs. (Turf) F.S.Alw 66000n1x
#3 Matzo Bella (8/5) – Servis looks tough to beat.
Race 7: 1 Mile. F.Mdn 75k
#1 Abilene Trail (8/5) – She ran a figure well above par in her debut sprinting. Her even pace figures tell the Conductor she’ll appreciate the stretchout.
Race 8: 6 Furlongs. (Turf) 100K Allied Forces Stakes
#2 Uncle Benny (4/1) – He stumbled bad in his return to the races last start and didn’t do much running. He’s the most talented runner in the field and that would be a delicious price.
#3 No Bang No Boom (5/1) – The Conductor can see him wiring this field.
Race 9: 1 1/16 Mile. (Inner Turf) Clm 25000
#4 Lucky Ramsey (8/1) – This gelding is coming in off a year layoff but is a hard knocker and loves the track and distance. Most importantly he looks to get a perfect setup today, with a hot pace to close into.
