Well, the Conductor is in a hole entering a great Fountain of Youth Stakes Day. No excuses, just pick up a shovel and get back to work. Let’s Ride.
Race 11: 1 Mile. (Turf) F.Honey Fox G3 Honey Fox Stakes
#8 Jakarta (15/1) – Stretching out off a short break, she’s the lone speed in a race devoid of any pace. She’s won at a mile on dirt and Mott is one of the best stretching them out. She The Conductor can see her stealing it on the front end, or at least holding on in the trifecta.
Race 12: 1 Mile. F.G2 Davona Dale Stakes
#5 Millefeuille (5/1) – #3 Vequist (7/5) is the clear one to beat, but her trainer is only 2/47 off a 90+ day layoff this year. This filly is the only one close to her on numbers and the Conductor likes her shortening back to a mile.
Race 13: 1 3/16 Mile. (Turf) F.G3 The Very One Stakes
*Gullet Shot of the Day #9 War Like Goddess (10/1) – This filly has run monster late pace figures in her first two career starts and gets the acid test today. There aren’t any standouts in this field and the Conductor thinks she has loads of talent.
Race 14: 1 1/16 Mile. G2 Fasig-Tipton Fountain of Youth Stakes
#1 Drain the Clock (5/1) – The Conductor liked the way he rated last time and won with ease. Stretching out for the first time, if he can get the distance, he’ll have every chance.
#5 Jirafales (15/1) – Re-rallying after being steadied hard on the turn last time, he galloped out well passed Drain the Clock. He will like every inch of ground.
