2/4 Saturday with Three Technique getting home at 5/1 starts the Belmont weekend off in the green. The Conductor found it hard to find horses to lean on today, but he’s always got a few up his sleeve. Keep the throttle down Conductor, we’ll keep stacking the coal. Skip.
Race 1: 1 1/16 Mile. (Inner Turf) MC 40000
*Gullet Shot of the Day #7 Steady Scheming (9/2) – The Conductor will set the tone for the day at Belmont right for the jump. This gelding was bet to favoritism last time and ran a winning race. He made a big wide early move move on the turn and was just nailed late. This may be an asinine morning line, but he’ll likely be the 2nd choice in here and he’s the most likely winner. 3/1 or better is fair for the Conductor.
Race 3: 1 Mile. (Turf) F.Perfect Sting Stakes
#1 Customer List (7/2) – #2 Technical Analysis (1/1) will probably win, but she may be vulnerable off the bench. She also does her best running on the lead and won’t get it today. Customer List won nicely last time off the layoff at Monmouth, closing behind a slow pace. She ran a very strong late pace figure and should step forward with a race under her belt. She looks to get a perfect ground saving trip by Irad today and offers value in this small stakes field. Chad Brown can’t sneak this one by the Ductor at Belmont.
Race 7: 1 1/16 Mile. (Turf) F.Clm 50000n2L
#2 Bernt Again (4/1) – This is a very weak Belmont claiming race and this filly broke her maiden nicely last time. She got a good trip and ride by Franco, but she was still dominant in victory. She’s progressing nicely this year since returning to the turf and gets a nice inside draw today. The Conductor thinks she’ll float up from this morning line and be an overlay too.
