Throat Shot Thursday: The Conductor’s Plays at Belmont Park

What a three-day card we have in front of us at Belmont. Strap in, Let’s Ride.

Race 1: 1 3/8 Mile. (Turf) OC 25000n1x

#2 Pillar Mountain (5/2) – 2nd off the layoff, he closed nicely into a slow pace last time.  The Conductor really like his effort at Saratoga as well.

Race 2: 1 Mile. S.Alw 74000n1x

*Gullet Shot of the Day #7 Joe’s Smokin Gun (15/1) – The favorites in here are exiting good efforts over sloppy tracks, while he ran a poorly over one. His fast dirt track form makes him competitive in here and he has upside stretching out to a mile for the 1st time. The Conductor will key him in the trifecta.

*Never a Doubt Conductor Note Playback Lock of the Day #9 Keepme in Thegame (7/2) – This filly ran a solid closing 3rd into a slow pace in her debut at Keeneland. The Conductor had a note on her to play her back, which makes her an absolute lock.

#3 Blue Parrot (10/1) – Well-bred for top connections, the runners with experience in here are nothing special.
