Elate let us down yesterday in the late pick 5 at Keeneland, in a sequence that the Conductor otherwise saw perfectly. Never too early to prep for Wednesday.
Race 1: 1 1/8 Mile. Clm 30000n2L
*Gullet Shot of the Day #8 Treasure Trove (6/1) – Switching back to dirt 3rd off the layoff, this boy is also a 1st time gelding. Trainer Kellyn Gorder is adept with this move, being 28% with a +$0.29 ROI switching runners from turf to dirt this year.
Race 2: 1 Mile. (Turf) Mdn 71k
#3 Shared Legacy (6/1) – This colt bobbled at the start and pressed a hot pace last time and still ran well. He should step forward and appreciate the shorter distance here.
Race 3: 6 Furlongs. Clm 50000n3L
#6 Senor Jobim (5/1) – The Conductor sees him rounding back to a peak effort.
Race 4: 6 Furlongs. F.Clm 20000
#4 Dreaming Diamonds (4/1) – This filly stepped forward last start and the Conductor sees her continuing the progression.
Race 5: 1 Mile. (Turf) Mdn 71k
#2 Ramsey Solution (4/1) – This colt is bred to be a good one and the Conductor doesn’t like the runners with experience in this group.
Race 6: 6 ½ Furlongs. Alw 73000n1x
#9 Breaking News (15/1) – #4 Honest Mischief (1/1) looks tough to beat, but the Conductor likes this colt to hit the board at a big price. 2nd off the layoff, he ran a monster late pace figure in his return to the races last start. The Conductor will key him in the exacta and tri.
Race 7: 1 1/16 Mile. (Turf) F.G2 JP Morgan Chase Jessamine Stakes
#9 Diamond Sparkles (6/1) – This filly ran very well last time vs Grade 1 company closing into a slow pace. She looks to get a much better setup in here with a hot pace to run at. Anywhere close to 6/1 would be glorious.
Race 8: 7 Furlongs. MC 30000
#12 New York Style (9/2) – The only concern is the post.
