It was a positive Friday for the Conductor. His best opinion was #2 Cleon Jones winning the 3rd race at 6/1. The train is moving in the right direction going into Saturday. Let’s get this big boy up to full speed. Let’s Ride.
Pennsylvania Derby Play: Maximum Security Scratched From the Pennsylvania Derby
Race 1: 6½ Furlongs. Clm 20000
*Gullet Shot of the Day #5 Gorgeous Charli (12/1) – This old man returned to form last time, closing into a moderate pace and winning. He has past figures that give him every chance and he’ll be a nice price to key in the verticals.
Race 2: 1 1/16 Mile. (Turf) F.MC 40000
#2 Fusi (4/5) – Chalk
Race 3: 1 1/16 Mile. Alw 77000n1x
#1 Gio d’Oro (8/1) – 2nd off the layoff, this gelding can get brave and carry his speed a long way when he’s on the early lead. He should be all by himself up front in this one.
Race 4: 1 1/16 Mile. (Turf) Mdn 75k
#4 Eagerly (7/5) – He ran big in his debut closing into a slow pace. He’ll be tough to beat with a race under his belt.
Race 5: 6 Furlongs. Clm 16000n2L
#1 Elios Milos (4/1) – 1st off the claim, this colt showed real ability early in his career. He had no pace to close into last time on a dead rail. The Conductor thinks his price will float up as well.
Race 6: 6 Furlongs. Mdn 75k
#2 Aasr (3/1) – The Conductor likes his works for Chad and the inside has been very good at Belmont so far.
Race 7: 1 1/16 Mile. (Turf) Mdn 75k
#6 Balon Rose (5/2), #8 Shelter Island (9/2) – The Conductor will use the two Chads and carry on.
Race 8: 1 Mile. (Turf) G3 Noble Damsel Stakes
#1 Bellavais (7/2) – The Conductor thinks Pletcher can beat Chad in here. Her race two back in the G1 Just A Game will give her every chance.
Race 9: 1 Mile. Alw 50000s
#6 Quick Entry (5/1) – 1st off the claim and stretching out for the 1st time, Servis is 40% with a +$1.17 ROI with 1st time routers this year.
Race 10: 1 Mile. G2 Kelso Handicap
#1 Monongahela (6/1) – He chased Mitole in the Whitney last start and the distance was too far for him. Shortening back to mile and facing weaker, the Conductor likes him a lot.
#6 Plainsman (4/1) – Making his 2nd start of the year today, he ran a huge late pace figure in his return to the races last time. The Conductor thinks he’s sitting on a big one.
Race 11: 1 Mile. (Turf) F.S.Alw 66000n1x
*Underneath Uppercut #1 Barrel of Destiny (10/1) – The low % trainer will keep her price high, but she fits right in with this group. She doesn’t always get up in time to win, so the Conductor will key her in the exacta and trifecta.
