We were out early and often in the pick 6 yesterday in Belmont. Not great, but Churchill has a hell of a card today for a Thursday. There is always another race in 20 minutes, that’s why the Conductor loves this game. Full fields and juicy prices in Louisville, the train will roll right in and fire away. Let’s Ride.
Race 1: 6 Furlongs. F.Mdn 95k
#8 Weekend Fun (7/2) – Drawn well to the outside, the Conductor loves this girl’s work tab for top connections. She showed her hand in tat bullet work at Keeneland May 25th.
Race 2: 1 1/8 Mile. (Turf) OC 100000b
*Never a Doubt Thursday Night Stew Lock of the Day #2 Mr. Misunderstood (4/5) – The Conductor wanted to play against him off the layoff, but he looks too classy against this group.
Race 3: 1 Mile. F.OClm 10000
#8 Big Blue Magic (7/2) – Stepping up in class, she’s in great form and looks to get a favorable trip up close to a slow pace.
Race 4: 6 Furlongs. MC 40000
#1 Replete (12/1) – Cutting back to a sprint after setting a scorching pace for this level last time, the Conductor will key her in the exacta and trifecta.
Race 5: 1 Mile. F.OC 75000n1x
*Gullet Shot of the Day #9 Kim K (6/1) – 2nd off the layoff, this girl stretches out to a mile and has shown she has talent, breaking her maiden in a stakes race. Anything above 4/1 will get the Conductor tingly inside.
Race 6: 1 1/16 Mile. (Turf) Alw 97000n1x
#3 Kaziranga (12/1) – The Conductor liked the way this colt split horses and finished in his win last start. He’s steadily progressing, and he didn’t have a favorable setup last time, it was a moderate pace he closed into.
Race 7: 7 Furlongs. OC 62500n2x
#10 Tiznoble (8/1) – 3rd off the layoff and working well at Churchill, he’s stepping up in class, but his figures fit and he is ultra-consistent. He looks to get a perfect stalking trip just behind the front-runners.
Race 8: 1 1/8 Mile. MC 20000
#1 Grand Roayale (12/1) – Maiden claimers going this far? Who the hell knows. This 1st time gelding has upside stretching out to a route for the 1st time.
