Great Wednesday for the Conductor as Windpipe Whack Wednesday Play of the Day Motown Music wins eeeeeaaasy at 7/1.
War like Goddess got the job done at 6/1 as well in the 9th and the train is rolling heading into the Breeders’ Cup. We’ll be back and forth from New York to Kentucky until Sunday. Let’s Ride.
Race 6: 1 1/16 Mile. Alw 87000n1x
#5 Alex Joon (9/2) – Coming off a year layoff, they jogged him around the track last time. He’s stretching out to a route today and has been working his eyeballs out. With the talent he showed in his maiden breaker, the Conductor sees him firing a big effort.
Race 7: 5½ Furlongs. (Turf) F.Mdn 85k
#1 Train to Artemus (4/1) – She ran very well in her debut, setting a hot pace and holding on for 3rd. Shortening to 5 ½ furlongs will make her tough to beat if she can break cleanly from the rail.
Race 8: 6½ Furlongs. F.OC 62500n2x
#3 Club Car (2/1) – The Conductor doesn’t love anyone and in here, but this filly is the most likely winner after that last effort at Keeneland.
Race 9: 1 3/8 Mile. (Turf) Alw 87000n1x
#7 Fortuity (10/1) – This colt is steadily progressing and gets better the further he goes. He has the best late pace figures in the field.
Race 10: 1 Mile. Clm 10000b
#12 Uncle Gregory (8/1) – Dropping in class today, he ran ok vs a much tougher group at Keeneland last time. The shorter distance will also help his cause.
