Saratoga picks

Wow, the Conductor thought there would be no chance they would be on the turf today at Belmont. This whole weekend doesn’t look good on the radar. Lucky us, we need to make up for last Sunday and this may be the only shot we get. Hopefully they stay on the turf for the entire card. They probably will take them off the turf right before the Conductor’s races start just to spit in his eye. 2/2 today with juicy prices. Let’s Ride.

Race 8: 1 1/16 Mile. (Inner Turf) F.OC 62500n1x

#1 Stephanie’s Charm (12/1) – This filly had some solid efforts vs stakes company this winter. She dropped to this level at Belmont last time after a bit of a break, and ran much better tan it looks on paper. She was sandwiched at start, made a 5-wide move on the turn and rightfully tired late. Now she draws well to the inside and always runs her best in her 2nd start off a layoff. The Conductor adores her in a race with very vulnerable favorites.

Race 9: 1 1/16 Mile. (Turf) Clm 35000b

*Gullet Shot of the Day #9 Sonic Speed (8/1) – This gelding took on much tougher at Belmont going 7-furlongs of the bench last time. That was likely a prep for this spot and he ran sneaky well in that start too. He was stuck behind horses in the stretch and galloped out well in front of the group. Dropping in class and stretching out 2nd off the layoff, he looks primed to run a top effort.
