2/4 Saturday with two 2/1 winners and a 10/1 2nd keeps the train moving in the right direction. Let’s finish the weekend strong at Belmont and head into Preakness week in 5th gear. Happy Mothers’ Day Mom, see you at the track. Skip.
Race 2: 1 1/16 Mile. (Inner Turf) Clm 30000n2L
#3 Proven Hope (6/1) – This gelding took big step forward in his first start routing on the turf last time. He didn’t have the easiest trip, bumped and checked a few times, 3wide on the turn, and still got the job done. The Conductor thinks he’s found the surface and distance he’s wanted all along.
Race 4: 1 Mile. (Turf) F.MC 40000
*Gullet Shot of the Day #6 Nightsaber (9/2) – 1st off the claim last time, this filly ran well making an early move into a quick pace and was run down late. Now she shortens in distance and makes her 2nd start for the De Paz at Belmont. She will likely improve off that last effort, since she came from a 0% barn.
The Conductor wishes he had more for you passengers, but there aren’t any other horses on the card that stand out. Don’t blame him, blame Belmont. Do some work for yourself for once. Skip.
