0/2 on a chalky Saturday at Belmont brings the train back into neutral. Slim pickings again on Sunday, but there is a bomb that can make our month. As great as the Belmont Stakes Day card was, these weekend New York cards have been severely lacking. The Conductor needs better weekend racing NYRA, clean it up. Let’s get some prices home. Skip.
Race 5: 7 Furlongs. (Turf) New York Stallion Stakes
#8 Twenty Six Black (5/2) – The Conductor cashed on this colt last time and he’s rolling with him again here. He’s steadily progressing and Mr. Ductor thinks he’s a budding state bred star. He’s a certified mower in the stretch. Taking on an average field today, he’ll get the job done.
Race 6: 1 Mile. MC 20000
#8 Mister Moore (8/1) – Throw out this gelding’s last race going two turns on the turf. His one turn race on turf vs tougher two starts back makes him a contender in here. He tries dirt for the first time today and the Conductor likes his potential to move forward. Additionally, he gets a nice outside draw and McCarthy takes the mount for a small, but profitable barn. With just 25 starters this year, trainer Lerman Roy is 24% with a +$0.24 ROI
Race 8: 7 Furlongs. (Turf) F.New York Stallion Stakes
*Gullet Shot of the Day #4 Joeybignose (20/1) – Finally a bomb at Belmont that the Conductor is salivating to play. This filly tried turf for the first time last time and ran a career best race. She pressed the pace 3-wide uncovered on the turn, and finished best of the speeds in a race that melted down. Now she cuts back in distance and tries 7 furlongs on the turf for the first time. There aren’t any monsters in here and the race looks ripe for an upset. Making her 2nd turf start today, her big nose will hit the wire in front.
