The Conductor really likes the latter half of this Belmont card. Skip.
Race 5: 6 Furlongs. F.S.Clm 25000
#7 Awesome Alana (3/1) – Cutting back to a sprint and facing weaker today, she looks to get a perfect trip stalking dueling frontrunners.
Race 6: 7 Furlongs. (Turf) MC 40000
#8 Mokoto (8/1) – Shipping in from Parx, his figures fit with this group and shortening a furlong will help him. The Conductor likes that Saez takes the mount for a barn he never rides for as well.
Race 7: 7 Furlongs. F.Mdn 80k
#1 Malibu Anthem (8/1) – Anyone can win in this 6-horse field including the longest shot on the board. She had a brutal trip last time and is cutting back to a sprint and switching to dirt today. She’s proven she can run on dirt, gets a rider upgrade, adds blinkers and will be fit 2nd off the layoff.
Race 8: 6 Furlongs. (Inner Turf) OC 80000b
*Throat Shot of the Day #3 White Flag (8/1) – Ignore his last race on synthetic, he switches back to sprinting on the turf today where he runs his best. He’s 4/8 lifetime at Belmont and has serious back class. 8/1 would be an delicious overlay.
Race 9: 7 Furlongs. (Turf) F.Clm 40000n2L
#1 Hurricane Breeze (2/1) – Dropping in class and shortening a furlong, the Conductor doesn’t see anyone in this field beating him.
