The Belmont lived up to the hype with Hot Rod Charlie and Essential Quality throwing it down in the stretch. Hot Rod ran huge after setting a hot pace. It was a decent day at the windows for the Ductor, but Knicks Go flopping kept him away from doing real damage. The Ductor apologizes for no race call, sometimes life keeps him from sitting on the couch and screaming at races. Stupid life. Let’s get a nice Sunday whack. Skip.
Race 5: 1 1/16 Mile. (Turf) MC 50000
*Gullet Shot of the Day #2 Fingal (8/1) -This colt drops to the claiming ranks for the first time and switches back to turf, where he’s run races good enough to win here. He ran well on dirt last time, making a wide early move into a hot pace. Anything near this morning line would be a treat.
Race 7: 6 Furlongs. F.Jersey Girl Stakes
#5 Miss Brazil (8/5) – The Conductor was going to bet her yesterday against much tougher, but she scratched for this spot. The Ductor thinks this is a very talented filly.
