Belmont Park, Let’s Ride.
Race 7: 6 Furlongs. (Turf) Clm 35000n3L
#6 Qian B C (8/1) – He’s the price the Conductor likes most, dropping to the claiming ranks for the first time and returning to Belmont, where he runs his best. The Conductor will also use #7 Power Up Paynter (4/1) and #12 Smile Brian (5/2).
Race 8: 6 Furlongs. S.Alw 55000n1x
#11 Bears Mafia (4/1) – Winner of 5 in a row, gelding is in the best form of the bunch. Since he’s been running at Finger lakes he likely won’t be over bet.
*#6 Samay (20/1) – He ran a good 3rd off a year layoff behind Bears Mafia last time. This gelding loves to win and if he steps forward with a race under his belt, he can light up the tote.
#9 Tiergan (8/1) – He just missed at this level back in January and is returning after a long break. He’s posting bullet works for top connections.
#7 Number One Dillon (30/1) – He faded badly after pressing a hot pace last time. His win two back was against much weaker, but was very fast on the clock. With a bullet last work, the Conductor has seen much more questionable bombs.
Race 9: 6 Furlongs. (Inner Turf) F.Alw 65000n1x
#4 Notorious R B G (7/2) – Her last race makes her the one to beat in the Conductor’s opinion, but there are many contenders.
Other Contenders: 1,3,7,8,9
Race 10: 7 Furlongs. (Turf) Mdn 51k
#8 Panster (5/2), #12 Whatmakessammyrun (9/2) – Both these boys did some running in their debuts in races taken off the turf. They have an experience edge over most of this group and should take a big step forward today on the surface they are meant for.
