The Conductor is reeling. Every time he starts to build momentum, he gets booted in the face by the pony gods. So many over bet horses winning, so many strange results, Saratoga is a fickle beast. Times are tough and the Conductor doesn’t want to get out of bed this morning. Does he quit and go sit in the back of the train? Or does he throttle it and take down the mandatory payout Empire 6? We all know the answer to that, and that’s why we hopped aboard this train. Let’s Ride.
Race 5: 5½ Furlongs. F.MC 75000
Race 6: 6½ Furlongs. F.Mdn 90k
*#6 Mrs. Danvers (8/5) – This girl is the one to beat and most of the Conductor’s play will go through her. She missed the break, rushed up, and still finished a good 3rd in her debut.
Race 7: 5½ Furlongs. (OFF Turf) Clm 25000
Race 8: 1 Mile. (OFF Turf) F.Alw 50000s
Race 9: 1 1/8 Mile. F.100K Summer Colony Stakes
*Never a Doubt Sunday Scaries Preventer Lock of the Sequence #7 Blue Prize (4/5) – This hard-knocking mare gets class relief today and is the most likely winner in the sequence. She’s run admirably in her last two starts behind Elate, the best female dirt horse in the country.
*Lone Backup #4 Vexactious (6/1) – If your looking for a price, the Conductor likes this mare switching from turf to dirt. She’s faced stiffer competition on the lawn and has a win on dirt in her career. She’s posting bullet works and Rosario hops in the irons.
Race 10: 1 1/16 Mile. (OFF Turf) F.Clm 30000n2L
