Rough one at Santa Anita Friday. Everyone knows Saturday racing is the only one that counts anyway. First solid card of the meet at Belmont today. Let’s Ride.
Race 2: 1 1/16 Mile. (Turf) F.S.Alw 80000n1x
#7 Pandamom (3/1) – Making her first start as a 4 year old, the Conductor sees her as a standout in here. Her turf races have been consistently better than this group and the Conductor is against the favorite #4 English Breeze (5/2) who hasn’t run well in two years.
Race 5: 1 1/16 Mile. Clm 16000
#9 Ekhtibaar (20/1) – The Conductor sees a scenario where this old man is alone on the lead and could get brave down the stretch. The Conductor is looking at #1 Cheif Know it All (10/1) and #7 Allured (12/1) as interesting prices as well.
Race 6: 1 1/16 Mile. (Turf) Mdn 90k
*Gullet Shot of the Day #5 Welshman (20/1) – This Gelding is bred to go long on the grass and is working bullets entering today. That 58 and change on the turf really catches his eye.
Race 7: 7 Furlongs. OC 100000n3x
#7 Wicked Trick (6/1) – Drawn well to the outside, this gelding looks to get a perfect stalking trip and will be a solid price in a competitive field. His A race gives him every chance.
Race 8: 7 Furlongs. (Turf) Elusive Quality Stakes
#2 Proven Strategies (10/1) – He’s been going too far in his last two starts and gets the cutback in distance he needs today. He’s the lone speed in this race and the Conductor can see the New York jocks ignoring him until its too late.
