North Dakota at 8/1 at Aqueduct was the highlight of Saturday for the Conductor. We still need a big Sunday to end the racing week. Let’s Ride.
Race 7: 1 1/16 Mile. (Turf) S.Alw 72000n1x
*Gullet Shot of the Day #4 Matty’s Express (6/1) – 2nd off a short layoff today, he set a quick pace last time and held on for a good 3rd at this level. He gets a major rider upgrade today and the Conductor is hoping connections are smart enough to use the same tactics as last time. There is no other speed in the race, and he has a major chance to wire them.
Race 8: 1 1/16 Mile. (Outer Turf) F.S.Alw 72000n1x
#1 Mike’s Girl (8/1) – The favorites look tough in here, but this girl catches the Conductor’s eye. Ignore here last race off a long layoff and a sloppy track and she fits in here. She will be able to save ground and will have a hot pace to run at late.
Race 9: 7 Furlongs. S. New York Stallion Series Stakes
#7 Sadie Lady (7/2) – Her two efforts this summer at Belmont were disappointing, but she’s had some time off and gets back to Aqueduct where she runs her best. She has a nice outside draw and has a significant early pace advantage over this field.
Race 10: 1 1/16 Mile. (Turf) F.S.MC 40000
#10 My Lips Are Sealed (6/1) – Returning off a long layoff and dropping in class for strong connections, the Conductor likes her work tab. Her breeding suggests she’ll step forward on the grass and she has upside in a field of mostly proven losers.
