A Girl named Patsy ran 2nd at 19/1 yesterday, hopefully you passengers were able to make a few bucks. Another big Saturday of racing ahead with the race of the year to date. In the Apple Blossom, the Conductor will be having wine and swiss tonight. Let’s Ride.
Race 7: 5½ Furlongs. (Turf) F.Alw 83000n2x
#8 Violenza (10/1) – Drawn well to the outside today, this filly ran a very strong 2nd off the layoff last time. She has a very solid 3-year-old foundation and with natural maturity she’s right there with this group. 5 1/2 furlongs is perfect for her.
Race 8: 1 1/16 Mile. OC 80000n3x
#1 Final Jeapardy (8/1) – His last two races on a fast dirt track in the Morey barn are very fast on figures. The favorites in here have question marks and he’s working well. His late pace figures suggest the added distance will help his chances.
Race 9: 1½ Mile. (Turf) G2 Elkhorn Stakes
#7 North Dakota (10/1) – He had no chance last time trying to rally into a slow pace. He beat the favorite in here two back and should get a more favorable trip today with a quicker pace up front. The Conductor would love anything over 6/1.
Race 9: 1 1/8 Mile. G2 Oaklawn H.
#3 Fearless (7/2) – The Conductor liked to see that he can stay closer to the pace and still finish like he did last time. He’s working up a storm and has always possessed major talent. He will not stop, he has some of the strongest late pace figures you’ll see on dirt.
Race 11: 1 1/16 Mile. F.G1 Apple Blossom H.
*Gullet Shot of the Day #2 Swiss Skydiver (2/1) – Now this is the type of race that puts asses in seats. The two big girls square off and there is a lot of steam behind the 3rd choice, #3 Letruska (4/1), who will be on the early lead. The Conductor doesn’t see Swiss Skydiver letting her get too far away early and thinks Albarado will make the first move on the far turn. #6 Monomoy Girl (1/1) will then follow closely and hopefully we get a stretch duel for the ages. When Swiss Skydiver turned away Authentic in the stretch of the Preakness, his hair stood up. He thinks this girl is the best horse in training and Monomoy Girl won’t be able go by. He’ll be singling the #2. Skip.
