Spring has officially sprung. Now it’s Bluegrass Stakes day passengers and the Conductor is ready for war whenever you are. Skip!
Race 8: 5½ Furlongs. (Turf) G2 Shakertown Stakes
#7 Kanthaka (6/1) – This sprint is loaded with early speed and this gelding is the Conductor’s favorite closer in the race. She undoubtedly runs her best off the layoff and looks to trip out in this spot as well.
Race 9: 1 1/16 Mile. F.G1 Central Bank Ashland Stakes
#2 Pass the Champagne (4/1) – With the two favorites coming in off long layoffs, the Conductor is turning to the up and coming filly. He’s been impressed by her first two starts and she can use her early pace to make make the others earn it too.
Race 10: 7 Furlongs. F.G1 Madison Stakes
#3 Mundaye Call (8/1) – The obvious lone speed in a sprint with no other pace. She obviously has every chance.
#5 Kimari (5/2) – This is a really cool filly whose versatility is remarkable. She can be placed anywhere in the race and win. Additionally, she can handle any surface.
Race 11: 1 1/8 Mile.G2 Toyota Blue Grass Stakes
*Gullet Shot of the Day #3 Highly Motivated (3/1) – This Bluegrass Stakes devoid of pace, the Conductor is going to take a shot against the heavy favorite #4 Essential Quality (3/5). This colt’s right with him on numbers and is continuously running well after poor starts and tough trips. If he can break cleanly he should go right to the front and we’ll see how good he is. The talent is there and he’ll be at least 3x the price.
