Race 8: 5½ Furlongs. (Turf) G2 Shakertown Stakes
#7 Kanthaka (6/1) – This sprint is loaded with early speed and this gelding is the Conductor’s favorite closer in the race. She’s run her best off the layoff and looks to trip out in this spot.
Race 9: 1 1/16 Mile. F.G1 Central Bank Ashland Stakes
#2 Pass the Champagne (4/1) – With the two favorites coming in off long layoff, the Conductor is turning to the up and coming filly. He’s been impressed by her first two starts and she can use her early pace to make the others get her late.
Race 10: 7 Furlongs. F.G1 Madison Stakes
#3 Mundaye Call (8/1) – The obvious lone speed in a sprint with no other pace, she has every chance.
#5 Kimari (5/2) – This is a really cool filly whose versatility is remarkable. She can be put anywhere in the race and win and she can handle any surface.
Race 11: 1 1/8 Mile.G2 Toyota Blue Grass Stakes
*Gullet Shot of the Day #3 Highly Motivated (3/1) – In a race devoid of pace, the Conductor is going to take a shot against the heavy favorite #4 Essential Quality (3/5). This colt’s right with him on numbers and is continuosly running well after poor starts and tough trips. If he can break cleanly he should go right to the front and we’ll see how good he is. The talent is there and he’ll be at least 3x the price.
