Bye Bye Melvin got nailed in the final strides and Ballymore Star was a dud to make it an annoying Thursday. The Conductor really likes his prices today. Let’s head into the weekend with a full caboose. Skip
Race 6: 1 1/8 Mile. (Turf) Alw 87000b
#4 Hay Dakota (8/1) – He ran sneaky well last time in a merry go round race off a break. Now stretching out for Maker, he’s working well and looks to get a favorable trip with a hot pace to run at.
Race 8: 5½ Furlongs. (Turf) F.Alw 81000n1x
#1 Girl Named Patsy (12/1) – This girl won very nicely last time off the layoff and is now switching back to turf. She’s in good form while many of the contenders in here are coming in off breaks and she should bea able to but herself in a good position early. For a turf sprint this race does not have much early pace.
#6 Senora Roma (8/1) – Trying turf for the first time off the bench, she has a major early pace advantage over this field. If she takes to the grass, she can wire the field.
Race 9: 1 1/16 Mile.G3 Baird Doubledogdare Stakes
*Gullet Shot of the Day #4 Eres Tu (4/1) – This mare has been steadily progressing since last fall and ran huge off the layoff last time making an early move into a hot pace. She’ll be more fit today and will be the likely 4th betting choice in a competitive field.
