The Conductor loves this card at Belmont Park. Let’s hurt them today. Skip!
Race 4: 6 Furlongs. G3 Runhappy Stakes
#4 Firenze Fire (4/5) – They’re not beating him over the Belmont surface.
Race 5: 6 Furlongs. (Turf) S.Mdn 75k
#3 Danzigwiththestars (10/1) – He ran some very solid races last year and has been gelded since. Adding blinkers and lasix for the 1st time, he’s working well entering today. A step forward from last year can put him in the winner’s circle.
#12 Noble Journey (10/1) – Another 1st time gelding adding lasix, this colt’s workouts caught the Conductor’s eye as well. Cutting back to a sprint today, he ran well routing in his last try and was favored at the windows.
Race 6: 1 1/16 Mile. (Inner Turf) F.G3 Beaugay Stakes
#1 Harvey’s Lil Goil (8/5) – Making her first start as a 4-year-old, this filly is nails. Natural maturity will make her tough to beat.
Race 7: 6½ Furlongs. F.G3 Vagrancy H.
#3 Victim of Love (4/1) – Her 3rd in the Ballerina last summer was the best race this field has to offer. She got a prep under her belt last time and looks primed for her best today. She should sit a favorable trip, up close to a moderate pace.
Race 8: 1 1/16 Mile. (Turf) F.Mdn 90k
*Gullet Shot of the Day #10 Bonkers (12/1) – Heavily bet at Belmont Park last time making her first start for Maker, she ran well with a tough trip. Going longer 2nd off the layoff as a 4-year-old, she can upset this highly competitive field.
Race 9: 1 1/8 Mile. G3 Peter Pan Stakes
#4 Wolfie’s Dynaghost (9/2) – This colt won his debut last year in a key race for a barn that never wins 1st out. That’s a sign of a very talented runner and has been a very profitable angle for the Conductor.
Race 10: 1 3/8 Mile. (Inner Turf) G1 Man o’ War Stakes
#8 Gufo (2/1) – The Conductor can’t get away from this colt. Making his first start as a 4-year-old, he’s yet to run a bad race and has a thunderous late punch.
Race 11: 1 1/16 Mile. (Turf) F.Mdn 90k
#7 Before You (12/1) – Stretching out and trying grass for the first time, she’s been well bet in both her sprint races. Working bullets over this Belmont Park surface and getting a rider upgrade to Rosario, she’s very interesting.
