2/4 with shorter prices and a 2nd at Churchill Downs, chaos at Aqueduct, and nothing special at Del Mar Friday. The Conductor needs some of his bombs to come home this weekend. Let’s Ride.
Race 7: 6 Furlongs. F.OClm 20000
#6 Its Cold in Dehere (7/2) – He looks to get a perfect setup and loves Churchill Downs. The Morey barn is red hot, over 5/2 and he’s a good bet.
Race 8: 6½ Furlongs. F.Mdn 85k
*Gullet Shot of the Day #9 Bel Fiore (12/1) – She showed ability in her debut, closing for 3rd into a slow pace. Then she had a rough start last time after being bet to favoritism. There is more under the hood here and the Conductor likes the switch to Gaffalione in the irons.
Race 9: 1 Mile. F.G3 Chilukki Stakes
#1 New Roo (20/1) – This filly moved early into a hot pace last time and faded late. Her prior two efforts fit with this group on numbers and she’s one of the longest shots on the board. The Conductor will key her in the trifecta at a bomb.
Race 10: 1 1/16 Mile. Clm 10000b
#8 Blanket of Roses (6/1) – He’s taking a big drop in class for strong connections. He’s yet to run on dirt, but has run well on both turf and synthetic. In an open race, he has every chance.
