Aqueduct – Race 8: 1 1/8 Mile. G3 Withers Stakes
#2 Royal Number (6/1), #1 Shackqueenking (10/1) – The Conductor thinks both the Laurel shippers have major chances in here. They both are proven at 1 1/16 mile and the extra distance shouldn’t be an issue. They’re just as fast as the favorites in here with the exception to #5 Risk Taking (5/2), who will be over bet and taking on winners for the first time. The Conductor will put #2 Royal Number on top off his impressive last race.
Tampa Bay Downs – Race 11: 1 1/16 G3 Sam F. Davis Stakes
#3 Known Agenda (6/1) – No chance he’ll be 6/1, but he ran well chasing a hot pace vs G2 company in the slop last time. He beat a quality runner, Greatest Honor, two back and he’s proven at the distance. He’s most likely.
#9 Candy Man Rocket (10/1) – He was a blowout winner last time sprinting and if there is anyone who can stretch them out from 6 furlongs to 1 1/8 mile its Bill Mott. He has major upside.
