Throat Shot Thursday: The Conductor’s Plays at Keeneland

How in gods name is it only Thursday. Let’s Ride.

Race 1: 1 1/16 Mile. (Turf) Mdn 71k

#8 Ahsad (8/1) – Making his 3rd career start, he’s run well in his first two closing into slow paces. He’ll get a more favorable setup today.

#12 Strike Appeal (6/1) – This colt is bred to take a step forward on the lawn and he ran well vs one of the top 2-year old’s in the country, Maxfield, on dirt last time.

Race 2: 1 1/16 Mile. F.Clm 20000

#3 Daring (8/5) – It doesn’t take courage to bet this filly.

Race 3: 1 1/16 Mile. Clm 30000

#2 Take Charge d’Oro (3/1) – 1st off the claim for Asmussen, this boy is exiting a win and should take a step forward.

Race 4: 1 1/16 Mile. (Turf) Mdn 71k

#2 Law of the Land (3/1) – Closing for a good 3rd into a slow pace in his debut, he is very logical.

#4 Peaches and Nuts (4/1) – Her debut win at Monmouth got the Conductor’s attention.

Race 6: 1 Mile. (Turf) F.Alw 75000n2x

*Gullet Shot of the Day #7 East Moon (6/1) – We finally saw that this is her preferred surface and distance last time. With her limited starts on turf, the Conductor likes her upside.
