It was a frustrating Thursday for the Ductor. Then he wakes up this morning and his favorite price play for today gets scratched. The pony gods are testing him, but they will not break his will. Only one more sleep until Travers Day, the podcast will be out later today. Skip.
……and then the slop comes. Updated for MTO
Race 4: #3 Boss Jim (5/1)
Race 5: #2 Fingal’s Cove (4/5)
Race 6: #2 Patria (8/1), #3 Leelo (10/1), #12 Blame it On Mary (8/1)
Race 7: Donegal Surges (4/1)
Race 9: *Gullet Shot of the Day #1 Perfect Munnings (12/1) – #3 Key Point (2/1) will be the rightful favorite in here, but he’ll be facing his toughest field to date. Perfect Munnings ran well off the layoff last time vs open company and now will be back to facing state breds in his 2nd start as a 4-year-old. His best race came at this exact distance and level last year, where he ran a figure that could put himself in the winners circle again today. He looks primed to run a career best race 2nd off the bench.
Race 11: #10 Slow Decision (8/1)
