The Conductor sucked yesterday but the card was unplayable with the rain scratches at Belmont. Meanwhile at Churchill they had 14 horse fields running with great opportunities. There off the turf again in NY, so the Conductor will take the train to Kentucky to hunt for gold. Let’s Ride.
Race 1: 5 Furlongs. F.Mdn 95k
#7 Mylastfirstkiss (4/1) – She is well bred and the Conductor loves her work tab. This is a very competitive field.
Race 2: 6 Furlongs. Clm 25000
#4 Fascilitator (5/1) – He’s lightly raced and the Conductor likes his upside in an evenly matched group.
Race 3: 5½ Furlongs. (Turf) Mdn 95k
*Gullet Shot of the Day #2 Shippingport (12/1) – Lanerie taking the mount for such a small barn screams to the Conductor that this boy is live. He’s been working bullets as well.
Race 4: 6½ Furlongs. F.MC 10000
#1 Ladyofdragonstone (9/2) – She’s steadily progressing and fits at this level. She ran a good 2nd last time setting a hot pace going longer. The Conductor loves the cutback.
Race 5: 1 Mile. Clm 25000
*Never a Doubt Friday Night Bottle Service Lock of the Day #2 Raising the Flag (3/1) – A repeat effort of her last start throttles this field. 3/1 would be insanely generous.
Race 6: 1 Mile. (Turf) Clm 50000
#1 Musical American (5/1) – He likes to run 2nd, so the Conductor will mostly key him in the exacta. In his last turf race he dueled setting a hot pace and was only beaten two lengths.
Race 7: 1 1/16 Mile. Clm 30000n2L
#8 General Kitten (8/1) – A 1st time gelding off a long layoff, the Conductor will take a swing in weak race. His performances on dirt give him every chance if he’s ready to run.
Race 8: 6½ Furlongs. OC 75000n1x
#9 Lemniscate (8/1) – He set the pace before fading badly in the Louisiana Derby. He’s been working well since at Churchill and the Louisiana Derby is the definition of a key race. It has produced several next out stakes winners.
Race 9: 1 Mile. (Turf) Clm 40000b
#2 Valycove (4/1) – He’s run the best turf races in the field against the toughest competition.
