That’s what the Conductor gets for doing his work early. He had one race he was excited about playing Thursday at Belmont and both his price horses got scratched. Throw in a loser and its an annoying start to the week, We march onward. The Pimlico cards are growing on the Conductor, he’ll have Black-Eyed Susan Day spot play up later tonight. Let’s Ride.
Belmont Park Race 4: 1 1/8 Mile. (Inner Turf) F.OC 62500n2x
#6 Arina (8/5) – She’s not a lucrative price, but the Conductor thinks she’s a cinch. She ran a huge late pace figure, closing into a slow pace off the bench last time. 2nd off the layoff today, she will handle this field.
Race 5: 1 1/16 Mile. (Turf) F.MC 40000
#3 Aula (10/1) – She was well bet in her first start on turf last time. She was rank early and lost all chance expending her energy fighting the rider. She returns at the same level and Clement takes the blinkers off, hoping she’ll relax. This is Clement’s best move, he’s 7/17 this year with a $+1.23 ROI doing so. Aula has upside in a weak race.
#8 Maythisbetheone (3/1) – Exiting the same race as Aula, she ran best behind the winner. She had a poor turf trip chasing 3-wide uncovered on the turn and never quit. She’s the most likely winner.
Race 8: 1 Mile. (Turf) S.Alw 80000n1x
#7 Fatima’s Blessing (2/1) – The Conductor was surprised his morning line was so low. It’s slim pickings on this Belmont Friday card. Mr. Ductor thinks he’ll float up to the 5/2, 3/1 range and he’ll single him in the horizontals. He showed a nice turn of foot late last time in a merry-go-round race. He was the only horse to pass rivals in the stretch. Fatima’s Blessing should beat this group.
