The Conductor prays Keeneland is open in the spring and he can roll in the grass with a bottle of stew.
Race 6: 1 Mile. F.OC 75000n2L
*Force Feed Friday Play of the Day #7 Lady Lilly (9/2) – Dropping out of G1 stakes company, she was up close to a very hot pace and ran well. She’s bred to improve stretching out and anything above 7/2 would be very tasty.
Race 7: 1 1/16 Mile. (Turf) F.Alw 71000n1x
#3 Sursum Corda (5/1) – This filly was too far back behind a tepid pace going longer last time out. Her maiden breaker two back was very impressive, and she has the best late pace figures in the field. The Conductor likes the shorter distance for her as well.
Race 8: 6 Furlongs. G2 Stoll Keenon Ogden Phoenix Stakes
#6 Echo Town (8/1) – Cutting back to his preferred sprint distance, this colt looks to get a perfect trip sitting just behind a contested pace.
#12 Midnight Sands (12/1) – 2nd off the layoff and making his 2nd start in the states, this boy is battle tested and loves to win. He was heavily bet last time and is posting bullet works coming into today. Rosario taking the mount for a trainer he never rides for caught the Conductor’s eye as well.
Race 9: 1 1/16 Mile. F.G1 Darley Alcibiades Stakes
#1 Thoughtfully (3/1) – 950k at auction, this girl has romped in her first two starts. She’s bred to get better stretching out and the Conductor likes her consistent work tab.
