It’s officially Belmont Stakes week. No need to talk about the past, the future is now, The cards look much more enticing than the last few weeks. Let’s Ride.

Race 5: *1 3/8 Mile. (Inner Turf) F.OC 62500n2x

*Gullet Shot of the Day #5 Peace Seeker (12/1) – This mare ran better than it looks last time at this level off a short break. She had no chance far back behind an extremely slow pace and still finished well, galloping out in front. Now she stretches out to her best distance and will be the longest shot on the board. Beating this group is a lot to ask, but the Conductor sees her at least running in the trifecta.


Race 7: 6 Furlongs. (Turf) OC 62500n2x

#2 Maxwell Esquire (6/1) – This Belmont specialist returns off the bench for Maker and gets a nice inside draw. Last May he made his seasonal debut at this distance and level and got the job done. With the favorites drawn to the outside, the Conductor thinks this race is ripe for an upset

#5 Into the Sunrise (8/1) – The Conductor has backed one Casse runner this meet and immediately regretted it. 2nd off the layoff today, he’ll try again with this gelding at a fair price. He’s the clear lone speed and will have no problem clearing to front without anyone else in here to challenge him. He can steal it gate to wire.

Race 9: *1 1/8 Mile. (Inner Turf) F.G2 Wonder Again Stakes

#4 Revalita (5/2) – This filly is a certified mower and has a huge late kick in the stretch. Her last race was even more impressive than it looks, closing against a speed favoring turf course. She’s clearly the most likely winner.

#2 Juniper’s Moon (6/1) – The Conductor needed her last time and she ran a winning race. She chased the pace 3-wide the entire turn and still finished strong. With an inside draw today, she has the potential to pull an upset.
