Woof, the Conductor’s been off the stew this week and his runners still haven’t finished running at Churchill Downs. Not to worry, he’s got a tall glass in his hand right now. Let’s Ride.
Race 6: 5½ Furlongs. (Turf) F.OC 62500n2x
*Double Barreled Buckshot #2 Luvin Bullies (10/1) – This mare is a hard knocker and you can ignore her last two races that were taken off the turf. She’s working well off a short layoff.
#3 Violenza (12/1) – She had a tough trip last time at Churchill Downs and her two prior efforts put her right there. In an open race, she has every chance.
Race 7: 1 1/16 Mile. MC 30000
*Force Feed Friday Best Bet of the Day #9 Beaucette’s Ekati (4/1) – This colt made a nice move on the turn before yielding late and drops in class today. 4/1 would be a treat.
Race 8: 6 Furlongs. F.Clm 30000n2L
#10 Eagle Eye (4/1) – She had a wide trip last time off the layoff at Churchill Downs and showed talent in her debut. Another hammer job if she’s 4/1.
Race 9: 1 Mile. F.Alw 87000n1x
#4 Ocean Breeze (8/5) – This filly is a standout on numbers. If you can’t trust her today you never can.
Race 10: 6 Furlongs. Mdn 85k
#7 Aeronaut (20/1) – He’s working well and trainer Vickie Foley is 3/12 with a +$3.50 ROI this year with 1st time starters. Mitchell Murrell also takes the mount for a barn he never rides for.
