The Conductor is exhausted after yesterday. After review, Derma actually ran a really good 6th after missing the break completely. That’s racing sometimes, but that doesn’t pay the bills. Passengers go back to their normal lives and the Conductor gets back in the lab. To Belmont Park we go, Skip.
Race 4: 1 1/8 Mile. (Inner Turf) Mdn 90k
#6 Certified Loverboy (15/1) – This colt ran well sprinting at Saratoga last summer. Then he showed grit in the slop going a mile. Now he returns off the layoff stretching out on turf for the first time. There isn’t any early speed in this race and the Conductor is hoping to send him right to the front. He’s expecting big effort out of this Loverboy at a big number.
Race 7: 6 Furlongs. F.Clm 32000
#5 Alpine Queen (5/1) – There is no other early pace in this Belmont sprint and she’ll be all alone on the lead. With mediocre runners behind her, the Conductor will bet they won’t catch her.
Race 9: 6 Furlongs. (Turf) F. License Fee Stakes
#4 Minaun (15/1) – #12 Star Devine (3/1) is the rightful favorite in this race and Minaun ran well exiting the same race. She bobbled at the break and spotted the field multiple lengths. She rallied well and made up significant ground in the stretch. At 5x the price she’s improving and has a chance to light up the tote.
